Egg-less Whole Wheat Cookies

               We aren't much of a snack eaters family , but we loveeee snacks, yes you can rarely find something to crack on in my cupboard. For me snacks refers to something crunchy and savory , and we like it that way to be accompanied with our evening tea. But we are early dinner people, yes we skip out evening snacks and  directly have our dinner by 7.00 pm, people say its kind of healthy , but i guess back in India, we all dine late , right ?

My little Adya, making me remember that she is growing faster, insists me on giving her  "some other thing to eat ". What ever i serve her with she isn't happy , she will still ask me the same; " i want some other thing Amma ". Well, i truly do not know what she means by this " some other thing ". And now trying to outsmart her i make everything possible to be ready if she asks me that " some other thing ".
A few days ago , i was ready with Oranges , Chicken Sausage , and same freshly baked Whole Wheat Cookies , and happy me she went with the cookies and simply enjoyed it. I have always made these at home and we all enjoyed the Whole Wheat goodness , but in between i missed baking these for a few months, and again back on track.
