If you like oats, here comes another cookies recipe with oats. Oats is the best way to add fibre, minerals and antioxidants to the diet. Of late, I have been using oats in my bakes.
Eating oats as breakfast cereal has never been my thing. Don’t like the look and the consistency of an oats porridge. I like oats more in a cheela or cookies. If you too are trying to include oats in your daily diet then this cookies recipe is the best way to do it.

Our daughter loves everything with chocolate and cocoa. Whenever she wants me to bake something tasty, I understand now is my time to go to her much-loved chocolate. Addition of cocoa powder to these healthy cookies makes them appealing to children.
Here I have used jaggery and granulated demerara sugar. You can replace jaggery by packed brown sugar. These cookies are absolutely healthy as I haven’t used any leavening agent.
Cranberries come as a surprise in some of the bites. Balancing the sweetness with their mild sourness. All in all, this is one of the yummiest eggless cookie recipes. You will find yourself making it often
