  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup oil (approx.)
  • ¼ cup warm water (optional)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup powdered oats
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence



  • Take half cup of instant oats and powder it. Fine powdering yields best results.
  • Also, powder the sugar and keep it ready.
  • Pre-heat the microwave convection oven/regular oven to 180° C.

Recipe for Whole wheat oats cookies:

  • In a mixing bowl, take butter and half of the oil. Beat them together nicely.
  • Add powdered sugar and mix well.
  • Now place a metal sieve/ mesh on the bowl. Measure and take whole wheat flour and powdered oats.
  • Sieve them along with salt, baking powder and baking salt.
  • As an optional ingredient add vanilla essence for extra flavor.
  • Combine everything with fingers.
  • Start kneading the dough. The moisture from the butter, oil and sugar won't be enough and the dough would be still crumbly.
  • Hence add the remaining oil and some warm water (if required) to form a thick cookie dough.
  • If you use extra liquid to make the dough, you can remove the excess moisture from the dough by keeping it tightly wrapped with a baking sheet/parchment paper in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Keeping in the refrigerator makes the dough firmer and it is easy to make slices.
  • Alternately, you can skip refrigerator part and proceed with making cookie shapes and baking.
  • After 30 minutes, take out the wrapped dough out of the refrigerator and remove the wrapper.
  • Now the dough becomes firmer and easier to cut.
  • Cut into quarter inch cookie slices.
  • Bake them in a greased/lined baking tray for 15-20 minutes. Baking time varies depending on the type of oven.
  • Take out the oats wheat cookies after baking, let them cool down completely.
  • Initially, they may be softer inside, but as time progress oats cookies become crispy. This is not a chewy type cookie but crispy one.


Tips: 1) Firstly, you can add chopped nuts on top of the cookie dough for an extra rich taste. 2) The second tip is, always powder the sugar before adding because powdered sugar gives even sweetness to the oats cookies. 3) Finally, the instant oats variety only works better for this recipe.
