Sorry for posting the recipe bit late.Now coming down to the recipe - i would definitely say that baking cookies is much easier & faster than baking a cake.You just need to combine all the ingredients & voila !! your cookie is ready.It hardly takes 15 mins to bake them. Howz that??
This was my first attempt at baking cookies - i wanted to try baking these cookies but somehow i was not able to take up the challenge...& today b'coz of my blog i attempted to give it a try and i have to say i am more than satisfied with the results -- very good to eat & tasty.

And one more reason to bake these cuties( i just loved the cookies soooooooo much that i have to call them cuties) was that i had these wheatgerm lying in my pantry for quite a long time pleading for my attention!!
I adopted the recipe courtesy:Joyofbaking.com but made few changes to suit my requirement.

All Purpose flour/Maida-->3/4 cup

Butter-->3/8 cup

Oil-->3/8 cup

Sugar-->1 cup

Flaxseed powder-->1 tbsp

Warm water-->3 tbsp

Vanilla extract-->1 tsp

Baking powder-->1/2 tsp

Salt-->1/2 tsp

Cinnamon powder-->1/2 tsp

Wheat germ-->3 cups

Raisins-->for decoration

1) Preheat oven @ 180 degree C (@ 350 degree F) for 10 min's.

2) Mix warm water & flax seed powder and leave it to rest for 15 min's.

3) Take a bowl cream the butter and sugar until light & fluffy.

4)Now add the flax meal mixture ,vanilla extract & mix well.

5)Take another bowl sift together all purpose flour,baking powder ,salt,cinnamon powder.

6)Stir in the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat until well incorporated.

7)Now add in the wheat germ and stir it well.

5)Grease the cookie sheet with butter & spoon the batter on to the cookie sheet.I used one tbsp per cookie.Flatten them with wet hands.Place one raisin in the center of each cookie.

6)Bake them @ 180 degree C ( 350 degree F) for 15 min's.

7) Remove them from the oven & leave the cookies to cool down on the baking sheet itself before transfering them to an air tight container.


  • The whole mixture turns out into one sticky dough -- not to worry just spoon out the batter and flatten them with wet hands.
  • I have used wheat germ - the actual recipe calls for oatmeal.
  • You can add any type of nuts for that extra cruchiness.
