Honey and Oatmeal Cookie


Cafe Coffee Day is an awesome place for coffee, obviously, and their snacks. We frequent CCD and when we sit down to eat Vibhaa, as usual, throws a tantrum. Then one day we gave her the Honey and Oatmeal cookie they have and surprisingly she loved it and demanded another one! So I bought an entire tin of cookies for her and she enjoyed having them. But I was a bit skeptical because at the end of the day its processed food, and giving that to her frequently was not something that was making me comfotable. 

I Googled recipes for Honey and Oatmeal cookies and found many recipes with choco chips, almonds and the like. Since Vibhaa haven’t started chewing nuts proper I went for a recipe without nuts or choco chips. So here’s the recipe for the Honey and Oatmeal cookie and trust me, it was yum! Chandru even asked whether it was store bought!!!
