I came across this recipe in the Nov/Dec 09 edition of Vegetarian Times. It claims to be the "Heart Healthiest Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World" since it contains no butter, eggs or maida. I made these during my daughter's playdate and the little girls (and this big one) enjoyed gobbling it up.
Here's the recipe (makes about 15 cookies):
1.5 cups walnuts
1.5 tbsp canola oil
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 c. oat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 th tsp cardamon pwd
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 c. chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
- Mix the brown sugar with 1/4 c. water and bring to a boil. Take off heat.
- Add the walnuts, oil and vanilla extract to this. Blend till smooth.
- In a separate bowl, mix the oat flour, baking soda, salt and cardamon pwd. Stir this flour mix into the walnut mix.
- Then add the rolled oats and chocolate chips to the mix.
- Shape the dough into about 15 2 inch balls. Lay them on the baking sheet. Flatten the cookies with the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in water.
- Bake 10 -12 minutes till they begin to brown. Cool 3 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
