Now coming  to food blogging, though I wasn't blogging much  I was very much reading all your lovely blogs .and was also fortunate to be a part of the Bloggers Buzz event which was held in February 2013...just a month before my due date :)..All thanks to hubby who encouraged me to attend the event and all you lovely ladies of Bloggers buzz who made such a memorable experience for me...!!

So here I am, back to blogging.. !! I made these quick and easy cookies when Ishaan was taking his afternoon nap :)
These oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies are  a great source of fibre and nutrition  and go wonderfully well with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee !

  • Mix in vanilla extract and eggs until light.
  • Stir in oats,flour,baking soda and salt.Then add chocolate chips and nuts.
  • Line a tray with baking paper and scoop out the cookies (Forgive me for the shape...i did everything in a hurry as baby was asleep so they were different in shape can say a bit rustic ;)
