Wholemeal Honey Oats Melon Seeds Cookie

for a start, i would like to say that these cookies are really good ;p especially with the addition of melon seeds. the end result was very fragrant cookies with a nutty crunch.

i adapted this recipe from florence's wholemeal honey oats sesame biscuits, replacing the sesame with a big handful of melon seeds and also cutting down on the sweetness. and yes they turned out awesome :)

and to those of you who have left-over melon seeds from mooncake making, do give this recipe a try.

and did i mention that these cookies are packed with wholesome fibre? they are made with oats and wholemeal flour, so they are healthier in a sense and more of a gulit-free treat ;p
