Vegan Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are one of my favorite cookies! With school starting soon I’ve starting making lists of treats to cook and freeze for their lunchbox treats. Along with this I need to start thinking of creative lunch box ideas. That means spending the weekends stocking up on groceries, school lunch & snack food items, and do as much meal prepping and planning as I could do. M starts kindergarten this year and I know we will busy with school activities, dance class, and much more.

The girls love having a special treat in their school lunches, so we made these yummy Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies (which are vegan). We had so much fun making these together!

I like to cut the cookie in fourths and serve the “cookie triangles” in their lunchbox.

Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies {adapted from my Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies}:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (unbleached flour works as well)
3/4 cup oat bran
1  cup brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup vegetable oil (I use canola oil)
1/3 cup orange juice
1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Combine the oil, orange juice, and vanilla; then mix with the dry. Roll the dough in your hands to make 1 1/2 inch balls. Place them on a large cookie sheet and flatten them to about 1/4 inch thick with your fingers or a fork. Bake at 400 degrees on middle rack for about 12 minutes or until they are just beginning to brown. Cool on cookie racks.

    I love the idea of making cookies with an oat bran base – so much extra nutrition!

      Oat bran has a good quality protein (all most important aminoacids), many manganese, phosphorus, vitamin B-1, no cholesterol. It makes cookies healthier.
