Recipe Notes

  • To make oats flour, grind the rolled or instant oats in the mixer grinder or a food processor for couple of minutes or until they get a smooth fine texture.
  • You can replace rice flour with semolina/suji.
  • You can use any nuts of your choice, almonds also tastes great.
  • Do not knead the mixture else the biscuits will become hard, just mix till well combined.
  • You can store the log in the freezer for upto 3 months. Just thaw them for couple of hours in the refrigerator before slicing them and baking them fresh.
  • Line the baking tray with parchment paper and then grease it with ghee to avoid the cookies from sticking to the bottom.
  • Every oven is different, so try and check the cookies couple of minutes before the given time.
  • Always place the baking tray in the middle rack, and use the baking mode, when both the rods are on, this will give you even baking from all sides.
