Abstract: Oat (Avena SativaL.)belonging to Family Gramineae containing high amounts of valuable nutrients, phytochemicals, antioxidants and phytochemicals provides protection against cardiovascular diseases and certain type of cancer. Whole grain oat results in cookies with high fiber and energy. Studies showed that spread ratio decreased with increased in oat flour concentration at levels of 5%, 10% and 20%, as a result of binding of starch polymer molecules tightly. Biochemical analysis like protein, fat and ash showed an increasing pattern with increase in the oat proportion. Further improvement may be done in the formulation of fortified cookies
