Whole Wheat & Oats Digestive Cookies/Biscuits





 Do you like the taste of digestive biscuits? Then you should try this. These taste so good and a much healthier choice than store bought one made with partially hydrogenated oil or high fructose corn syrup. But if you are on a grain free diet or gluten free diet these cookies are not for you.



I made this cookie recipe an year and half before ( a long time) before gluten was eliminated from our diet. Now a days I use only Almond flour for any kind of cookies. Even though I don't make them now, you will still continue to see quite a few of my recipes made with flours containing gluten like wheat. The simple reason is I have couple of them lying in drafts and this will be useful for people who still use whole wheat and oats in their diet.



Preparation Time - 15 Minutes

Cooking Time - 15 Minutes

Makes - Around 24 Cookies





Ingredients



Whole Wheat Flour - 1 Cup

Oats - 1 1/2 Cups

Baking Powder - 1 Tsp

Butter - 1 Stick (1/2 Cup at room temperature)

Salt - 1/4 Tsp

Raw Sugar - 1/4 Cup(Increase this to your taste, but normally digestive biscuits are a tad less sweeter)

Milk - 2 Tbsp (if needed)



Method



1) Grind the oats in your food processor to a powder form.



2) Combine the whole wheat flour, oats flour, baking powder, salt and raw sugar. Mix them evenly.



3) To this add the butter stick and form a dough. If the dough is too thick then add 1 to 2 Tbsp of Milk. Roll this dough into a cylindrical shape and wrap them with parchment paper and keep them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Do not keep this for more than 15 Minutes else it will be rock hard.



4) Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit and line two cookie trays with a parchment paper.

Take out the dough and cut them into even circles and place them in the cookie tray and bake for 15 Minutes.

I poked few holes using a fork.



5) Cool them in a wire rack and enjoy with some hot tea or store in an Airtight container.
