Anzac Cookies (Oats Biscuits)

I had a jar of powdered oats specially made for Anaya. I used to boil it in milk with very little salt and feed her for breakfast. Over a period of time she got bored eating the same stuff and refused to have it any more. I didn’t want to waste the oats so thought of making these cookies. I got this recipe from Nitya of  4th Sense Cooking. Thanks Nitya for a wonderful recipe.

Milo named it Anzac cookies (Australian famous cookies).  Oats have the property for rising up, so baking powder or Baking soda is not required to be put in these cookies.

These were one among the assorted biscuits I made for the cooking competition in office.


1 cup powered oats,

1/4th cup Brown Sugar,

3 tbsp all purpose flour (Maida),

1/4th cup Butter (I used Amul butter)

3 tsp milk,

A pinch of salt

Method –

Grind brown sugar to a fine powder.

Beat butter and sugar in a bowl until it turns creamy.

Mix the powdered oats, salt and all purpose flour together and gently stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated.

Now flatten the dough into a smooth disk shape with your hand and wrap in plastic wrap.

Chill the dough for 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Knead the dough well with little milk.

Take out the dough and pinch off equal little bits of dough and roll them into smooth balls. 

Press them a little flat with your palm.
