Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s Christmas season or cookie season to be more apt. I wanted to bake some cookies for my son’s teachers. I bought Wilton’s cookie sheet (large one) from Michael’s. The sheet came with 2 festive cookie recipes. One for chocolate chunk cookies and another one for thumbprint cookies. I would rather call the chocolate chunk cookie recipe as oatmeal chocolate chip cookies because it has a good quantity of oatmeal. I decided to try that recipe for the teachers because it made a huge batch and anything with chocolate chips and walnuts has to be definitely tasty.

After trying these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I came to one conclusion that Ener-G egg replacer works best in cookie recipes and especially chocolate chip cookies. So if you have never used Ener-G before but want to use it, start with cookie recipes. Simply substitute EnerG according to the instructions given in the pack, for the eggs mentioned in the recipe and that’s all you have to do and the cookies turn out perfect. My two cents is to use lukewarm water and also use a blender to blend together the powder and water instead of just whisking it with a fork. Using a blender makes the mixture very frothy and in turn gives desired results. So in this recipe too, I didn’t think twice before substituting Ener-G for the 2 eggs in the recipe. The cookies came out perfect as I expected.

The simple oatmeal chocolate chip cookies recipe using Ener-G egg replacer as egg substitute with step-by-step instructions.
  • 2 and 1/2 cups Rolled Oats/Quick Cooking Oats
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar, packed (I used light)
  • 4 teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer Powder
  • 7 tablespoons Warm Water
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 an 1/2 cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Coarsely Chopped Walnuts
  1. Process the oats in a food processor/blender. The texture of the powdered oats was not mentioned in the original recipe, so I chose a consistency in between coarse and fine.
  2. In a medium size bowl combine together the powdered oats, flour, baking powder, soda and salt; mix well.
  3. In a blender, blend together the EnerG powder and warm water until it’s frothy; set aside.
  4. In another large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluff. Beat in the EnerG mixture and vanilla.
  5. Add the flour mix to the sugar mixture; mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  6. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and chill the dough at least for an hour.
  7. Around the 45th minute, start preheating the oven to 350F/175C for 15 minutes.
  8. Scoop out heaping tablespoons of cookie dough; drop it on ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake on middle rack for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. For crisper cookies, I would suggest flattening the dough instead of just dropping them. The scooped out dough doesn’t spread much, so it’s very chewy in the middle. In that case I think the baking time will also reduce by a minute or two. I used an aluminum pan, so mine took about 13 minutes. The baking time will vary if you are using a dark coating non stick cooking pan. Be sure to check it earlier. I used to 2 cookie sheets at a time. So I shifted the pan from the middle layer to the bottom layer and vice-versa after 6 minutes.
  9. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and place it on wire racks. Let the cookies stand for 5 minutes because the cookies will continue to bake. After 5 minutes, transfer the cookies to the cooling racks directly using a spatula and let it cool completely before storing it in an airtight container.
  1. These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies tasted very good, crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle. I guess the cookies would have been more crisp had I flattened the dough.
My Notes:
  1. I think the next time when I make it I would reduce the quantity of chocolate chips to 1 cup and also substitute the all purpose flour with whole wheat pastry flour.
  2. The 2 and 1/2 cups of oats when powdered measured to 2 cups. So I think we could also use 2 cups of oat flour instead.

  1. The recipe looks very interesting and I’m going to try it out soon! Just quick questions, when you ask to blend the energ powder with water, it’s the normal blender? And beating would be with an electric balloon beater. My first time with cookies so just want to clarify. Thanks in advance

  2. Made these cookies today with salted butter…turned out yummmm….also used pistachios and almond s in place of walnuts…it rocked…thanks for amazing recipe

  3. Hey can we replace unsalted butter with amul butter or with white butter..im new to baking and need ur help as unsalted butter is not easily available in local market in delhi

    • I have not tried it Sheena, but have heard that you can use salted butter instead of unsalted and omit the salt in the recipe.

  4. Tried this tonight, except substituted the white sugar for agave nectar (3/4 cup instead of 1 cup sugar), used vegan margarine rather than butter, and used dark chocolate chips that were also vegan. I found the concept of processing the oats interesting, but thought I’d give it a go. I used steel cut oats and my Ninja blender, and got them to a pebbly texture but not completely powdered. I’d say this was pretty good, because the oats were still prevalent without being overwhelming. Oh, and I also added 1 tsp cinnamon for extra flavor, but omitted the nuts since I didn’t have any handy.

    The cookies turned out a tad flat due to my substitutions, but they tasted great and my husband loved them, too.

    • You can try it with flax seed powder blended with water but the cookies will not have a crispy texture. They will be soft and chewy instead. I think I would blend 2 tablespoons of flax seed meal with 1/2 cup of water until it’s frothy.

  5. Do we have to melt the butter before the sugar’s are mixed or just have the butter softened? Please clarify. I am new to cookie baking 🙂

    • The butter should be soft and not melted. I agree that it’s not clear. Thanks for letting me know, Shraddha. Please feel free to ask any other questions if any.

  6. Hi Madhu,

    These cookies looks like yummy…..can u tell me, Where can we find this “Ener-g powder” and which brand we have to take,,,,If u have that powder, can u send one picture of this powder for me,,,,so that I can get clear idea…

    Thank you

    Kavitha, EnerG is the name of the brand of the egg replacer powder. You can find it in most of the grocery stores in US (in the organic aisle). Or check for it in health food stores, Whole Foods etc. Check the picture here:

  7. Just made these, still in the fridge though. I hope they turn out well. I didn’t have any ener-g so I subbed it out with a 2 tbsp (30 ml) of water, 1 tbsp (15ml) of oil, and 2 tsp of baking powder egg substitute mix. The batter tasted great. Ran out of choc chips as well.

  8. Hi Madhu,
    I am a silent visitor of your website from last one month.But now I can not stop myself to appreciate you for this wonderful job. We can get the recipes from lots of different sources but Eggless ” NO WAY”. I am a KRISHNA devotee and desperately looking for Eggless baking recipes.I believe KRISHNA has send you for me and for all like me.

    Thanks a lot…

    Thank you very much Gudia. It’s generous compliments like this which keep me going.

  9. Nice recipe. I made four kinds of cookies and gave it as part of the gift to my daughters’ teachers. One of them was chocolate chip cookies. (different recipe)
