Have you ever noticed a goat or a cow grazing? There is something common….those two animals keep chewing all the time. Seems like I have something in common with them :) Oh yes, I’ve told you several times about how I like to munch something every now and then. Can you believe it when I say that I start raiding my kitchen cupboards for some snacks after 10 mins of having BF or lunch? These days I find it really hard to resist the temptations especially when my FB newsfeed is always updated with some beautiful food snaps. Ok leave the internet and switch on the TV, almost every other channel is loaded with cookery shows, doesn’t look good, what about reading something and there again you can see some food pics, sigh! It feels like the Universe is conspiring for me to give into the temptation ;)
Usually I end up with some junk food for munching, but after some time I feel guilty and forcefully eat some supposed-to-be health bars and what not! I only wish that these health bars suppressed my munching temptation… but the effect is more depressing. I don’t like the taste of all this healthy crap and that’s when I realised how I miss those unhealthy flavoured junk food and stuff myself with the double the amount of junk. So much for trying to eat healthy.
When I posted this eggless cinnamon recipe here, I never ever thought it would be one of the most popular recipes in the site. Because its a general tendency that we associate healthy food with awful taste, yep – I also do that. But that recipe was a revelation to me that healthy stuff can be tasty too and yes I’m sure there are other recipes also of the same category. This is one such recipe. Though the name of this cookie is Oatmeal & Raisin & Dates cookie, I re-christened it as Healthy Cookie. Yep, if you go through the ingredients, you’ll know it. I’ve customised the original recipe to make a healthier version.
Another thing I liked about the recipe is that, its quite filling. Also its a good way to incorporate oats in your diet. The cookie has a soft cakey texture with a slightly crusted top.
So shall we go ahead and bake some healthy cookies?
