Oats Chocolate Cookies

Oats Chocolate Cookies are gluten free cookies made using oats flour. These cookies were a hit in our home and it vanished as soon as I baked them. As a sweetener, I used honey and brown sugar but we can substitute the brown sugar entirely with honey. If you like chewy textured cookies, I suggest you bake it for 15 minutes and if you wish for a little crumbled ones, bake it for little longer (3 minutes more).  

I made this dish as part of the "Shhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge".  As part of this challenge a theme is selected at the beginning of the month by one of the participants. All the members are grouped in pairs. The participants will exchange 2 secret ingredients with their partners who are suppose to prepare a dish that matches the theme of that month. 

This month's theme is Chocolate and it was suggested by Mayuri Patel from Mayuri's Jikoni.  
Mayuri's blog has a wide variety of cuisines from all over the world. I have bookmarked a couple of  her desserts to try soon which includes "Nectarine and Blueberry Crisp" and "Coffee and Walnut Cake".

My partner for this month is Narmadha and I gave her milk and cashew and she made Biscuit Truffles. She gave me butter and salt and I made these oats chocolate cookies. Narmadha blogs at Nam's Corner and she has a wonderful blog with wide variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. I am in love with her Fish Popcorn recipe and would love to try them very soon. Also do check out her Butter Murukku recipe.
