This is one of the best news that I have received as I am on vacation. Before heading out for this annual time-off, I baked the gluten-free Jowar Oats Chocolate Walnut cookies to carry for my parents and sisters. Here is the quick and simple recipe for it.

1 cup jowar flour

1/2 cup oats flour

Chopped walnuts

2 tbsp cocoa powder ( unsweetened)

Chopped walnuts ( as per your requirement)

50 gms of ghee/soft butter

3/4 cup cane or coconut sugar

Method –

Cream the sugar and butter/ghee well. Mix the flours and cocoa together. Then add it slowly in parts to the sugar-butter mix. Add the walnuts. Add 1-2 tbsp of milk or ghee to bring it together if the mixture is crumbly.

Wrap it and keep it in the fridge for 1 hour. Then bring it out, shape it into cookies and bake in a pre-heated oven for 15-18 minutes, at 170 degrees C.

Store in air tight container after they have cooled off completely.
