Cookies, who could not resist healthy and tasty cookies?

You wouldn’t say no to oatmeal cookies, right?

Baking cookies is one of my passion which I had learned from numerous trails and failures.

Yes, Chocolate Chips cookies are American favorite cookies but adding oatmeal to these cookies made them extra healthy and crunchy.

There are many types of Chocolate Chip oatmeal cookies online but this recipe which I had adapted from MILO cookies is less sweet and doesn’t spread out nor join the other cookies when baking.

I usually purchase quick cooking oats of Quaker brand, an old man with a Sunday hat.

This is a famous brand among my old folks although you have to pay a little more than the Tesco brand.

I would suggest that you should try baking this cookies as it is healthy, nutritious and suitable for weight watchers.

I have to admit it, I am a fanatic cookie baker.

I  find it simply love to bake cookies at home and I don’t it a chore at all.

Baking cookies give me the pleasure and joy when my family members absolutely enjoyed munching these cookies with tea or coffee.

This is a little different from other cookies that I had baked.

It is a low cholesterol cookie, Raisin and Lemon Cookies which I had found the recipe in a Low cholesterol segment.

It gives the store bought cookie look which I am sure anyone would fall in love with these cookies at first glance.

Fragrant Mocha Cookies

Freshly baked Fragrant Mocha Cookies by pachpurple

I have been wanting to try baking mocha coffee for a long time.
I have been searching for the right recipe but I found that when I key in “Mocha Cookie” in Google Search, I could only get a handful of websites with different ingredients measurement and no photos.
This is harder than I thought!
Anyway, I suddenly remembered that I had an old recipe scrapbook which was hidden in my cupboard for ages.
I managed to find a Mocha Cookie recipe with photos from an old newspaper cuttings back in the 80’s.
What you need to bake this Mocha Cookies
This Mocha Cookie uses the usual baking ingredients such as butter, brown sugar, eggs, plain flour, bicarbonate soda, chocolate powder and very strong coffee powder.
060220145850
However, we don’t drink strong coffee because it gives bitter taste and leaves stains on our teeth. Therefore, I substitute it with my favorite 3-in-1 coffee mix powder and chocolate powder.
Originally, Mocha Cookie does not require any walnuts but I modified it with additional sliced walnuts and chocolate chips to give the crunchy and sweet chocolate bites.

Additional Bites
I have the habit to add almonds, walnuts, cashew nuts or ground nuts in my cookies as these delicious nuts are rich in protein, vegetable fats and Vitamin D. Whichever nuts you choose, you will always get fragrant and beautifully texture cookies.
It is best to consume these cookies when they are still warm in the oven. You will enjoy the contrast of crunchy mocha taste interior and chewy crispy nutty exterior.

Ingredients:

  • 125g buter
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 egg
  • 2 tablespoon 3-in1 mix coffee powder
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoon warm milk or fresh milk 275g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
