Almond Ragi cookies
Almond Ragi Cookies with Almond Chocolate Filling I couldn't resist posting second recipe showcasing Almonds that I received from @pure_martindia in collaboration with #MuddyPuddle and @kirtikeepgoing. This recipe is very close to my heart. It's one of the first healthy cookie recipe that I created. My husband and I both like to have something sweet with our evening tea. So I am always on the lookout for healthy recipes. These bars have the goodness of Oats, Ragi, Almonds, dates and Flaxseed meal . They are mildly sweet and slightly chewy. Instead of almond chocolate spread, you can use a jam of your choice. The dough is not very firm . But it will come together when you press it between the cling films. Keep an eye while baking . These over bake easily.

Using a rolling pin roll it into a 9 by 12 inch rectangle .
Spread Nutella on one half .
Carefully fold over the other half and press lightly.

Carefully place these bars over silicon mat.

They will be soft but will harden as they cool.
Let the bars cool on the mat for 5 minutes.
Then place them on wire rack to cool completely.
