Fibre rich fig cookies!;)

Fibre rich fig cookies!;)
I had baked these fig cookies today to have with my evening cup of tea. As soon as they were done, i left them outside to cool, while we had our lunch. Then after lunch , we both had one to see how it tasted & found out that these were not only delish but also very addictive!;) We ended up eating the whole batch and this was after our heavy sunday lunch! !:)) In fact i am planning to make another batch this evening!:)

Almond pwd - 1/2 cup, rolled oats - 1/2 cup, all purpose flour - 1/2 cup, maple syrup - 1/4 cup, sunflower oil - 1/4 cup, salt - 1/8 tsp, fig jam - 4 tsps to 5 tsps.

Cookies ready to be baked!

Grind the rolled oats , all purpose flour, almond pwd to a coarse pwd. I just pulsed it for a few seconds in my mixie. Take the powdered ingredients in a bowl , add the salt & mix until everything is well combined. Now pour in the oil & maple syrup & stir well. Form walnut sized balls of the mixture & place them on a parchment lined baking tray. Press your thumb in the centre of each ball , make a small indentation & fill it with a little jam. Preheat the oven to 350°f . Bake for 15 to 20 mins until golden. Mine were done in 15 mins. As soon as they come out of the oven, they would be a little soft , but will harden up on cooling. Allow to cool for another 15 mins & serve!:)

Enjoy these fibre rich fig cookies fresh from the oven!;)

Edited today at 9.25 pm to add: Just now finished baking a second batch of these yummy cookies:)

But this time i doubled the amt & also increased the fig filling!yummm!:)

The second batch being put into the oven to be baked!

Hi Paati,

Wow! You are on a baking spree. The fig cookies look lovely.

The hotdog buns are soft & perfectly browned. Do you have a good recipe for paav buns?

I tried the vahrehvah recipe but it was a little hard.

Take Care,

kitchenmate do get the breadmachine , but if you are not much of a bread person, get a smaller model, because the bigger ones can be used to bake small loaves but the shape of a small loaf is not that great, but once you get used to baking your own bread & pizza, it will be very hard to go back to the store bought ones:)do try out the cookie & the fact that it was loaded with healthy ingredients like oats, almonds etc makes it all the more tasty!;)
thanks dear kate:) i don't have a recipe for pav buns, but i remember seeing a recipe for pav buns on bee's blog, which i had bookmarked to try out, but i usually use the burger buns minus the sesame seeds as pav buns!;). As for the hot dog buns, they were perfect taste wise, but the next time around i will make them a bit smaller, for when had with sausages, the hot dogs were a bit too bready!:)
thanks bombay bruxelles:)they were not only tasty but also loaded with good for you ingredients like oats & almonds, but if only i could reduce the amt of oil...:)

Wow! Paati, Now I know why you keep your location super secret. There will be a queue in front of your house every time you bake.. and yes, I'll be there in the line too.

The cookies look lovely. I'll make some for my little Mischief and let you know how she liked it.

kay do try it out & let me know if the little one liked it:) but i wish i could do something to reduce the amt of oil in the recipe...any ideas kay ? i was thinking of milk, what do you say?:)

Paati, 1/4 cup oil to 1 and half flour isn't bad at all. I know people substitute apple sauce or banana puree for oil, but you know... a little oil isn't going to hurt you. I am a firm believer that we all need fats. :) will try it soon, got to get some almond pwd.

you think so? cos when i did the second batch with 1/2 cup of oil to 3 cups of flour, i was feeling a bit uncomfortable pouring so much of oil!:) but when the poor eater took some to his workplace, they all loved it & everyone wanted the recipe!!:))

paati, if that first batch with 1/4 cup oil, made about 24 cookies, it's 1/2 teaspoon of oil per cookie. Not bad at all! :)

kay i made 12 cookies from the first batch... & how is your kombucha doing?

1 tsp per cookie is still ok, if you feel bad try substituting half applesauce and see if it works fr this recipe.

kombucha is growing well... I havent been making the tea though - too mush stress since march and havent had time to babysit that. but its looking good and growing thicker by the day... one of these days, I'll get to it. did you find a scoby paati?
