Another oatmeal cookies baked for snacks during Movement Control Order. It is always much economical to bake your own cookies instead of grabbing some packets at the stores.
These cookies are with walnuts, choc chips, oatmeal and flour. I made them in a bigger size compared to those I baked for Chinese New Year because there is only this variety available.
They are crunchy, crispy and not too sweet which you can munch and chew over a cup of hot beverage in the afternoons. Usually, I enjoyed it with Chinese tea.
