Oats & Coconut Rice Cookies

The experiment baking continues in my small kitchen and thankfully more successes than failure. The only department i fail to conquer is bread making :(. Mine is a microwave-oven and so rectangular molds doesn't fit, problem one and BIG problem two is my relationship with dry yeast, it has been really pathetic and so...bread making as of now is 'mission impossible'. 

On the brighter side, cookies and cakes have been turning out really well :). I refrain from icing most of the bakes, unless it's a special occasion, preferring to go easy on the sugar & fat department :D. Today's recipe cooked up out of the need to use up the packets of rice flour lying in the kitchen cupboard. Hubby dear picked up four packets of 500g rice flour thinking (without thinking more like it) it is plain flour.

I have been wondering how to use up the rice flour and it so happened that I ran short of plain flour and so decided to make good of the rice flour. The cookies turned out really well. Kept some for the boys here and sent the rest to my lil' bro who's studying in the University. Do try and be surprised :D. Enjoy!

1 Cup - Rice Flour
1 Tsp - Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp - Baking Soda
1/2 Cup - Sunflower Oil
1/2 Cup - White Sugar
1 - Egg
1/2 Cup - Oats
1/3 Cup - Dessicated Coconut

Preheat Oven at 160 Degree C. Grease cookie tray and keep aside
Sieve the rice flour, baking powder and soda and keep aside
Beat the sugar, oil and egg with a hand blender till it's well combined
Make a well in the center and pour the wet over the dry ingredients
Combine the ingredients, fold in the oats and coconut and gently bring it together to form a soft dough
Roll it into a cylindrical and then cut it up into bite pieces and bake in the preheated oven for 14-15 minutes
Let cool and store in an airtight container.
