    1 min read

    These oversized cookies look more like muffins and make a fun breakfast snack or mid-day nibble when paired with a glass of milk. Take your toddler's help in making these cookies, for a fun way to keep her occupied. Figs are a great source of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, plus they're high in soluble fiber, making them a healthy addition to your little one's diet.

    Method

    • 1Preheat the oven to 350°. Combine brown sugar, butter and eggs in a bowl. Next, add the dried figs, cranberries, and vanilla essence. You can ask your child to do this step. Just show them once and observe while they do it.
    • 2Next, combine the all-purpose flour and the wheat flour, bran, and next 3 ingredients in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add this flour mixture to the egg mixture, stirring just until they are moist. Do not mix too much. Gently fold in the almonds.
    • 3The consistency of the batter should be such that the blob of batter when dropped on the baking sheet with a spoon retains its shape. Drop the blobs 4 inches apart on 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle evenly with granulated sugar.
    • 4Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until almost set. Remove and cool for 2 minutes on pans. Remove from pans; and cool completely on wire racks.
    • 5You can let your toddler help by asking him to pour the measured figs and cranberries into a bowl, or making him stir the ingredients in Step 2. The kid can also pour out blobs of batter onto the baking tray.
