Mango scones

I like to add plenty of fresh fruits in my baking which could be very intimidating at times, as the extra juices from the fruits could easily ruin the texture of the baked goodies. And if it is a cookie in baking quest it becomes all the more difficult to get a perfect crisp and crumbly finish with  fresh fruits in it. Muffin Top cookies is the perfect answer to it! A cross between a muffin and a cookie these baked goodies are soft & chewy due to high liquid content of fruit mix in them.

Yes these Mango Oats & Mixed Fruit Chocolate chip cookies are cake-like soft from inside and crisp from outside and are a real healthy treat to indulge in, since it can be baked with very less sugar and fat. Quite easy to bake these cookies are delicate and are bursting with the goodness of fresh fruits in it.
