Eggless Whole Wheat and Almond Cookies

Eggless Whole Wheat and Almond Cookies


As the Summer Vacation starts here in India, Holidays start for kids and double job for mommies. :D
When kids are at home the home comes alive with their Mischievousness and Playfully acts all the time..

We as mommies are always on toes half the time running behind our toddlers and half in kitchen preparing healthy food for them. So, I thought of doing a Cookie Week where I will share the series of Home Made Cookies that I prepare regularly for my family.

Out of these Cookies Some would be healthy, some not so healthy but delicious of course. :) Some made with Whole Wheat Some with Plain Flour/Maida, Some with Indian Flavor infused like Saffron Some with Kids Favorite Chocolate. I have tried to keep all the recipes absolutely simple and the results are absolutely amazing. You try once and you will keep them baking for ever and ever..:)
