1/4 cup chocolate flavour syrup
250 grams whole wheat flour

3 teaspoons cinnamon powder
a pinch of salt
100 grams melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1 cup honey
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon chilli flakes

Preheat the oven to 160°C. In a mixing bowl, sieve whole wheat flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt. Add roasted oats, chilli flakes and mix well. Set aside till in use. Grab another bowl, and add some melted butter along with vanilla and whisk it in. To this mixture, add eggs and whisk until combined.
Now, add honey, chocolate flavour syrup and whisk till everything comes together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl. Mix well using a wooden spoon or spatula till everything comes together like a dough. Cover the dough and refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, brush a baking tray with some oil or butter and line it using a butter paper. After 30 minutes, remo
ve the dough and divide it into equal portions. Now, start shaping the dough into round cookies quickly. Place the shaped cookies on the lined baking tray. Bake for 12-13 minutes at 160°C or until the edges begin to appear golden and brown.
Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool. Serve with milk or just like that. You can also store them in an air-tight container.
