This recipe was originally created by my BFF - Pavita - we have been friends from the boarding school days and the bonding has just grown by the day.She has a beautiful home in Coorg where she lives with her husband Ramesh and two lovely girls Malvika & Tarana.

Together they manage Home Stay services. is their website.
She complained saying that I didn't mention anywhere that she inspired me to bake :)) so, this is my version of her Oat cookies.........dedicated only to her.

Ingredients :

  • Two Cups - Oats
  • Half Cup Wheat Bran
  • One Cup All purpose flour
  • Three Fourth Cup Sugar
  • Half Cup Fresh coconut grated
  • Two Tsp Baking Powder
  • Two Medium sized Eggs ( Beaten)
  • One Tsp Vanilla Sugar
  • Half Cup Salted Butter

Step 1 :

Mix all the dry ingredients, mix in butter and make a dough adding the beaten egg either by hand or in a stand mixer at medium speed.
The mixture/ dough would look like this ........

Step 2 :
Oat cookies need not necessarily have a shape - they can just be dropped with a ice cream scoop. I have just shaped them round . This dough makes about 30 cookies.

Step 3:
Bake them in a preheated oven at 160 degrees ( in a gas oven) for about 45 minutes. Once done , let it cool on a wire rack.

Once cool - they are not just a crunchy bunch of cookies but healthy too.

I rename them - PAULA'S OAT COOKIES :))

  4. They look perfect! My cookies never turn out so nice (probably because I don't use an ice cream scoop to make them even).
