  2. Mix together the flours, oats, ground flax, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, rum soaked fruits, walnuts and chocolate chips in a large bowl.

  3. In another bowl, whisk/beat together the egg, (If using mashed banana instead of egg do not add it during this step. Add it during the above step with the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well.) oil & milk together. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture. Mix the mixture together well with either a fork or a whisk or a wooden spoon to make a soft but not sticky dough.

  4. Shape cookies and arrange well apart on the greased baking sheet; flatten the tops down slightly with a fork. Transfer the biscuits to a preheated oven and bake for 10 -12 mins until golden. (oven times may vary)

  5. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool for 2-3 mins on the baking sheet.

  6. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Serve the Whole Wheat, Oatmeal and Amaranth Fruitcake Cookie cold or store in an airtight container to serve later.

  7. Notes:

  8. Make sure all excess liquid from the rum soaked fruits are drained.

  9. These cookies are soft cakey cookies. So don't worry if you don't achieve the usual cookie texture.
