dairy free, egg free, nut free…tasty? or taste free?


i am experimenting with one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes.  i am trying to convert it into a wheat-free, dairy-free and egg-free cookie.  i used oat flour and brown rice flour, Ener-G (egg replacement), brown and white sugars, and a canola based butter substitute.  I also added some dairy free chocolate chips that actually tasted great straight from the bag.

my first batch did not work out – my recipe did not translate exactly.  the flour did not hold up to the amount of sugar and the result was a thin deflated tweel.  so for the second batch i added more oat flour.  hmm pretty yummy!  i think they are still a bit too sweet -and kind of dry and powdery…my 5 year old however really likes them, he helped himself to two cookies!

    The enjoy life chips are the best. You might need a little bit of xanthum gum to help with the texture. Try tapioca flour also!
