Dark chocolate & Oats cookies


Dark chocolates are my all-time-favourite.  And that too, after completing my professional course on chocolate making I learnt a lot about dark chocolates.  Their awesome medicinal properties had  doctors to suggest for  heart patients in  small quantities regularly.  They are also known to delay cell ageing, preferably aiding ladies in increased skin glow.  My own tutor asked me to consume them regularly for my goodness!!!



As a result, dark chocolates have entered my day-to-day  cooking.  This recipe combines the goodness of dark chocolates and oats. They are hard surfaced, that is crunchy in texture.  They are soo delecious and is a must-tea-time snack that goes healthy too!! 




Ingredients required

  • 21/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 11/2- 2 cups powdered brown sugar (Depending upon your taste)
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, melted at double boiler
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup milk


Method

In a deep pan, melt butter and roast oats till they are slightly brown,  Dont let it burn, keep aside. 
 In a separate bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder and mix well. Add in melted dark chocolate and stir in to coat the mixture uniformly.   To this add roasted oats, sprinkle milk very carefully  and knead them into an tough dough.  Make them into tiny roundels or circles and bake at pre-heated oven at 180 degree celsius for twenty minutes or till edgess brown.  Cool them in wire rack, this is an important step and if you skip doing so, your cookies may not turn crisp .  After cooling, store them in air-tight container and enjoy with tea !!
