Eggless Whole Wheat Almond Cookies

I am early with my post for Taste and Create. And by ' early' I meant before the deadline. For the past couple of months, my posts for Taste and Create was just on time.I cook and post on the last day in such a hurry that my folks at home wonder 'What's the great rush'!!!!! But not this month :)

I am paired with Veena of Veg Junction this month.She has a wonderful blog full of delicious vegetarian dishes.I have known Veena for quite sometime,meeting often during the blogging marathons. Though I have bookmarked  many recipes from her blog, now I really got down to creating her dishes in my kitchen.I have prepared a couple of other dishes as well from her blog and today I am posting our favorite....

For this edition, the first recipe that I choose is a cookie,as the name of this post suggests,the one with nuts as I was sure my Lil Angel would love it.The whole batch of cookies disappeared in 2 days and she is asking me to make another batch for her as soon as possible!
