Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies - egg free
As many of you know, my little man is allergic to eggs and all nuts and seeds. I am often on the look-out for egg free baking recipes. Below is a recipe using an egg substitute. I also used Giradeli Chocolate Chips, as they are the only ones on the market that are not manufactured in a facility that manufactures nuts.
They were/are really quite good (not chewy, but crispy). I am super happy with the results. Timmy helped make them, which really means he stood on a chair and turned the kitchen aide on and off for me. Of course, he likes to turn it on when my rubber spatula is scraping the sides, so I have smartened up and started unplugging it when we turn it off! He seems to be a big fan of cookie dough - go figure??? A child of mine liking cookie dough??? It must be genetic!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (eggless)
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tblsp water
3 tblsp canola oil
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups oats
bag of chocolate chips
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat together the butter and sugar until creamy. In a small bowl, combine the water, oil and baking powder (this is the egg substitute). Add the egg substitute and vanilla to the butter and sugar, and beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt to the butter mixture. Beat all well. Once thouroughly mixed, add oats and chocolate chips. Beat until combined.
Bake on parchment paper in oven. I used a small scoop from pampered chef for my cookies - they took about 16 minutes in the oven.
Delish (to borrow a rachel ray-ism).
