Choco Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Choco Chip Oatmeal Cookies  

The lockdown has given me the opportunity to dance around my hobby and so I tried to mix my hobby with my principle of a healthy dish. I tried to make oatmeal cookies. These cookies to me seemed to carry the aroma of dreams, taste of lost hobbies and warmth of a family. On a rainy day, when I felt nostalgic and homesick these cookies took me back to my cozy home. On a warm day, when I want to take up my lost hobby these cookies fuel my passion. I have also managed to stick to my healthy food principle by adding oatmeal, substituting wholewheat flour for all purpose flour and using brown sugar and honey instead of sugar. The toppings were of dry fruits that children usually evade. I hope these cookies would be as wholesome as they were for me.
