Feast season is here so how about keeping it light with something else. September month in my home is full of celebrations, birthdays to be precise. With loads of guests coming over planned to make some light and healthy cookies. Replaced butter with margarine to get rid of the butter guilt.

Preparation time- 10 min

Cooking time- 20 min


Oatmeal- 1 ½ cup

Flour- 1 ½ cup

Sugar- ½ cup

Margarine- ¾ stick or ½ cup

Raisins- ½ cup

Vanilla essence- ½ tsp



Butter the flour and then add sugar, rub together and then add raisins and oatmeal. Add vanilla essence and mix thoroughly. Add one egg at a time forming dough. Heat the oven to 200°C. Wrap the dough in cling film and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Roll out the dough and cut round cookies. Place them on greased tray and bake till golden brown for approx 15-20 minutes.
