Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Whole-Wheat Cookies

1 cup flour, whole-wheat all-purpose
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup oats, quick cooking
1/4 cup bran
1/2 cup sugar, brown
1/4 cup margarine, reduced-salt
5 tablespoons milk, low-fat

Recipe Directions for Sweet Whole-Wheat Cookies

  1. Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a mixing bowl. Add the oatmeal, bran and sugar, and mix well to combine.

  2. Add the margarine and rub it in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add 4 tablespoons milk and stir in well so the mixture forms a soft dough. If the mixture is a little dry, add the remaining 1 tablespoon milk.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a sheet of plastic wrap and shape it into a log about 25 cm long. Wrap the plastic around the dough and roll it gently back and forward to make a smooth shape. Twist the ends of the plastic together to seal. Chill the dough for about 30 minutes. (It can be kept for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.)

  4. Preheat the oven to 375F (190C). Unwrap the dough and, using a very sharp knife, cut it across into slices 1 cm thick. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet and place the dough slices on it. Bake for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

  5. Transfer the sweet whole-wheat cookies to a wire rack and leave to cool completely. They can be kept in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
