Rolled Oats

Oats has 20 grams carb per one half cup with fiber deducted.

It would seem wise to use oat fiber, with a lot less oatmeal
than this recipe calls for. I agree 100% that this is a taste and
texture that we all miss. Sorta like missing corn. I think that
the genius of this board will come up with a tasty substitute
that will satisfy the oatmeal cookie loving cookie monsters
in all of us.

Hey, look at this one:


Dessert Recipe: Flourless Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe from Ellen Krutz
For the Bay Area News Group
Posted: 01/19/2011 12:00:00 AM PST





Flourless Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup dark brown sugar (sub Splenda/molasses)
˝ cup canola oil
1 egg
˝ cup chopped nuts
˝ cup dried fruit: raisins, cranberries or other dried berries
2 teaspoons cinnamon or a mixture of cinnamon, cloves and/or allspice

1. Place the oats, brown sugar and oil in a bowl. Stir well. Let sit for 8 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Add remaining ingredients to the oat mixture and mix well. The mixture will be very crumbly and will not resemble batter much.
3. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Cookies will spread so leave adequate room between each cookie. Bake 15 minutes. Let cool slightly. Remove to rack to cool completely.

I love all ideas of using oats for oatmeal cookies, but I would LOVE to have is an oatmeal "type" cookie that is LC and doesn't use oats.

Oats are just too high carb for me and limiting myself to 1 cookie doesn't do the job!

Would chia seed gel work? I have never had chia seed. Do they stay in a "ball" to give the right texture when baked?

I've tried some items with chia seeds and ground chia meal. The stuff has essentially no flavor. It takes on the flavor of whatever you put into it. It will crisp up, in a pancake for instance, but I've never managed to get a chewy product using just chia meal as the flour. It goes from gluey to crisp.

Sorry girlfran, but I can't imagine an oatmeal cookie without any oatmeal at all. I did have an idea to maybe try some wheat bran next time..it has somewhat of an oatmeal texture.

Here is my recipe for oatmeal cookies.

These cookies are excellent, no funny tastes at all and they have sort of a chewy cake like consistency. I think they would have been chewier using only one egg. I got 24 cookies, that were 2 1/2 inches around. I counted these at 2 carbs each, not including the xylitol because I don't know what the carb count is for that.

I think next time I may use 1/2 cup of quick cooking rolled oats, which has 24 carbs, and maybe add some s/f chocolate chips. Feel free to tweak, if you find it tweak worthy!! LOL

Low Carb Oatmeal Cookies

2 packets low sugar apple cinnamon oatmeal, topped off with beeb's hot cereal to make a cup. - 38 carbs
1/8 cup oat fiber -0-
1/4 cup vital wheat gluten - 5 carbs
1/2 cup carbquik - 4 carbs
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp butter
2 lg eggs
1/2 cup xylitol

preheat oven to 350

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl, in a separate medium bowl cream butter and xylitol until creamy, add in eggs and vanilla. Combine wet into dry and mix well. Drop by tbsp onto cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes. You could flatten these out some, because they don't spread out at all, but they came out the same when left rounded, just smaller.

Not sure how low carb you are looking for beeb but I use quinoa flakes for oats all the time and they work great. Carbs look somewhat high but it's actually quite low on the glycemic scale but as with anything it's a YMMV kind of thing. Barley flakes would be even lower gl but I haven't been able to find those at the store yet.

I've also used shredded unsweetened coconut a lot of times to replace some of the oats in recipes. I don't like the flavor of coconut at all but as long as I don't use a ton of it I don't even notice a coconut taste and it gives a nice oatmeal like chewiness.

I'm pretty sure barley flakes & quinoa flakes have a higher carb and GI than rolled oats.

Rolled oats are about 50 and quinoa 35 on the GI scale. Plus quinoa is a good source of protein and like oats, fiber too.

Cytosport used to make Muscle Milk protein powder that was oatmeal flavored.
It had more carbs but it was very tasty. I am trying to find out if they still make that flavor and if so, what the nutrition facts are on it. If it is still available, it might be
able to be subbed for the vanilla PP in the cookie recipe and give it a more oatmeal like
flavor.

Now THIS sounds like something that may work! Let us know what you find out, jlp!

I have used raw sesame seeds as a sub for oatmeal in no bake cookies. I have also used sliced almonds, crushed up a little bit to the size of oatmeal. Both worked great in the no bake cookies as a sub for oatmeal. I think the almonds would do best in baked recipes because the raw sesame seeds might change flavor during baking.

I tried roasted sesame seeds once in no bake cookies and didn't like them at all because the flavor of the roasted sesame seeds was too strong. Don't try roasted sunflower seeds as a sub for oatmeal.

C: I was thinking of the sliced almonds, too. A bit crunchier than oatmeal, but still
very good.

Hey Gina, that San Infusion might work. It would be worth a try though it is outdated.
Sometimes protein powder gets a strange taste when outdated.
Anyone willing to try it? : )

I believe that Cytosport must have stopped making the oatmeal flavor. Netrition doesn't show it and I cannot find anything on an internet search. Haven't heard back from the company yet.

I will get some whey oatmeal next time I order my baking products...I found a few more oatmeal protein powders.

I think I will try using the oatmeal whey in a bake mix, and then maybe use some sliced almonds, and mix the cookie dough and let it sit in the fridge overnight, like Lauren did in her oatmeal recipe. I might add a few raisins just for effect.

What if you soaked the almonds first? Maybe in cream or carmal DaVinci?

Here's what I found doing a search on the nutrional facts:
1 c. oat bran 25 g. carbs 6 g. fiber
1 c. oatmeal 39 g. carbs 4 g. fiber
1 c. quinoa flakes 59 g. carbs 6 g. fiber.

Oatbran is the winner, but I wonder if it would work since it is more "floury" than the flakes?
I am thinking about trying the San Infusion PP but I can't order until next week.
