Oatmeal cookies fell apart

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 
I'm baking oatmeal cookies using no wheat/grains.  I used mostly quick rolled oats and oat bran.  The consistancy is almost right at this point but they fell apart a little.  What do I need to do to get them to stay together more, to be less flaky and more chewy?
 
Thanks!!

A little more egg will hold them together better and add corn syrup for chewiness.

Thanks, I'm all for the egg but don't do corn syrup.

 

Honey?  Molasses?  What other options would work well?

 

Thanks

brown sugar might help and make sure not to over bake.  pull them when they are still a bit soft...usually 12 minutes to the second works for me.....what exactly were your ingredients? I find that, like most things in cooking, it's ratios.

Good idea, list my ingredients. Here they are:

 

(I want to stay low sugar.  I think more eggs is the way to go because I want the protein in there too)

 

½  cup peanut butter
¼  cup brown sugar
1/4 tablespoon turbinado sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2cup quick cooking rolled oats – maybe more next time and more water
1 cup toasted oat bran
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
1 tablespoon coconut butter

4 tablespoons coconut oil
6 ounces chocolate chips (optional) and/or 16 ounces of dried tart cherries
