In my previous post I had mentioned that I had to bake cookies for my son’s class. This was the other cookie I baked for his friends. I used this recipe, but instead of using silken tofu as the egg replacement, I used EnerG egg replacer powder. The instructions in the EnerG box mention that it does not work well with store bought mixes. I took a chance anyway and was surprised that the cookies came out so well. These cookies were also chewy and did not spread as much as the silken tofu ones. Last time I had used Duncan Hines cake mix and this time I used Betty Crocker’s german chocolate cake mix and I felt that the latter ones had a smell which I didn’t relish. I think the flavorings in the Betty Crocker cake mix gave that smell. Nobody else could really feel it. I’m known for my exceptional “nose-power”. So the next time I bake these cookies I’m definitely going to use Duncan Hines. Also this time I used dried cranberries instead of raisins, reduced the amount of chocolate chips and increased the quantity of dried fruit.

Yet another success! Decadent is the word that comes to mind. The contrast between the tart cranberries and the sweetness of the chocolate chips was amazing! I used a light margarine to keep them vegan, but stayed true to the recipe otherwise.
This is the second of your cookie recipes I have tried,and I have to say I am very impressed! I think I’ll just begin at the beginning and work my way through the entire cookie section! 🙂
Oh! thank you so much Melinda.
I can’t get the step by step procedure for the Eggless Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies. When I click “click here for the procedures” it brings me to the chewy choc chips cookies.
How can I get the step by step recipe? Sorry, I am new in baking and never baked before.. Hope you don’t mind teaching a dummy.. 🙂
No problem Rachel. Just follow the procedure for chewy chocolate chip cookies but use energ egg replacer instead of silken tofu. Whisk the EnerG powder and given quantity of water in a blender or with a fork and add it instead of pureed tofu. Otherwise the procedure is exactly the same. Get back to me if you have any other questions.
Hey, Hope you’re up late tonight and have time to reply!! I am to take something breakfasty and healthy for a breakfast gathering at Arnav’s school tomorrow. Any ideas? In any of your recipes, if I replaced half of the all purpose flour with 100% whole wheat flour, would I need to add anything else to compensate? I like the cranberry nut quickbread!
Boy, you guys bake a lot of cookies! Yum!
