Oatmeal Cookie Time

Ok I have a confession today we didn't get outside not even for the short morning walk. Just a little out of sorts. This afternoon Sophia showed me a picture and asked "Mom can make brown cookies?" I said sure we can make oatmeal cookies. Because hey if one thing doesn't work out today at least warm cookies for snack will be fun to smell in the kitchen.

Dairy-free & Egg Free Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup canola oil
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Mix 3 tablespoons canola oil, 3 tablespoons water and 2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup water
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups of Quick oats
handful of dairy free chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine oil, sugar and baking powder mixture and beat well. Add dry ingredients. Beat well then stir in oats and water. Drop by the teaspoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until light brown. Yield 4 dozen.

Notes: The baking powder mixture replaces 2 eggs. I use canola oil for my baking. Next time maybe I'll substitute half the flour with whole wheat pastry flour I forgot this time.
Happy baking!

I have a GREAT oat banana muffin recipe that might work for your food allergies (no wheat, no egg, not milk in the recipe). It you want it, email me (email on my blog or blogger id).

My child is allergic to milk and cannot digest wheat well so those are the only two we have to avoid.
