Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies - Recipe

Well I'm back from vacation! You know what that means, Julie and Julia Project!
You can click the tab above for any extra information.

I decided to start with a delicious looking Consolidation Phase dessert. Here I will basically tell you what not to do, because I failed at the Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookie found on page 232 of the Dukan Diet book.

The book says it makes about 20 cookies, I made about 8.

The book says 2 hours for the "chocolate bar" to harden, I had mine in the freezer for 12 hours and it was still not hard when I took it out.

It might be hard to see it from this picture, but the chocolate bar (even after 10 extra hours in the freezer) never hardened. it got bendy and more 'solid' but never chocolate-bar-hard.
The book also said 20 minutes cooking, I'm assuming I made the cookies too large because they could have used another 10 minutes at least. They came out very spongey.


2 tsp Duch-processed cocoa
1 egg yolk + 1 egg
1 tbsp Splenda
3 tbsp oat bran
3/4 cup ff plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract (all I had was maple extract, made it smell and taste suuuper yummy.)

For the "Chocolate Bar" that never hardens:

Mix the cocoa, egg yolk, and 1 tsp of Splenda.

Wrap it in plastic wrap and flatten it into a rectangular bar. Mine was a circular bar. Next time I try this recipe I will flatten it really thin, see if that makes it harden faster, or rather, harden at all.

Put it in the freezer for 2 hours, then chop it into coarse chunks. Good luck "chopping" this spongey mess. I ripped it appart instead, got my hands covered in goo-ey cocoa.

When you mix this chocolate mixture into your cookies it will all dissolve into little specks of chocolate that you will be able to smell during the cooking process but you wont be able to taste when you are eating the cookies.

Put the oat bran and chocolate chunks in a bowl. Now add the yogurt, cornstarch, whole egg, baking powder, and maple extract (you can do vanilla if you so choose) and 2 tsp of Splenda.

At least it looks like cookie dough. Yumm...

In the book we are instructed to line the baking sheet with aluminum foil... DO NOT DO THIS, omg. Just don't. I had never heard of lining a cookie sheet with foil to bake cookies and now I know why, they stick! Just spray a cookie sheet with pam or use parchment paper, or spray the aluminum with pam.

He instructs to place small, heaping mounds on the aluminum foil. I think mine must have been too big, this is why they did not cook in 20 minutes. Also, the mixture is kindof runny so make sure you have a lot of space in between cookies because they will run before they start cooking.

Do not line the sheet with aluminum or you will find yourself scraping the cookies off like I did. Parchment paper or pam will work much better.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until the edges are nicely browned. Let the cookies cool completely before removing them from the baking sheet.

So as you can see, I did not succeed with these cookies, but at least now you know what not to do and the J & J project is on it's way!

Better luck with my next recipe eh?
I'll let you know if I try this recipe again and succeed. Ugh.



  1. Its annoying when they say to do things that clearly dont work. This did make me chuckle a little though! :) better luck next time

    1. So far I find none of the recipes in the book are really turning out perfectly :P

      Sometimes you have to wonder if they even tested them out XD

      Thanks dear.

  2. I believe you should fluff the egg whites separately then fold into the cookie mix. I realized this too late after just following above...they came out flat.

  3. you know I just cook it like a brownie :D

  4. When applied in cool, wet weather, it can cause burning of
    the leaves and the russeting of fruit. Due to the popularity
    of organic gardening, organic potting soil and compost are
    available at most garden centers. Without fertilizing additives (natural or chemical), plants will be stunted and unhealthy.

  5. Personal opinion is generally exhibited in various
    types of editorial writings. If you are a reader of local language newspapers it might
    get difficult for you to find your desired language newspaper any
    where else. He becomes a different person once he dons his
    uniform to the sound of the orchestra warming up. Some say it would have, because there is an ongoing collaboration between the two groups in attacks on Israel.
    Once the symphony begins, Paul loses himself in the sound as he had in the stuff exhibited in the
    picture gallery.

  6. Make sure you only use clean balls for playing on
    indoor simulator.
    It is also a good practice to make sure that none of the climbers are
    more tired than the other. At this time, and in a good location, the leader should set up
    a few anchors and belay the second climber so
    he can climb up and hand off the equipment he
    has been recovering. The main purpose of a Simulator
    is to understand the behavior of the system. Every plane is actually the virtual model
    of the real aircraft, including the controls that you
    can setup with the working, clickable cockpit.

  7. You'll also opt in purchasing a survey scanner if you should happen to feel that you need better probabilities in finding the ore that you would like to mine.

  8. A lot of people will state that more than 20,000 coffee houses are found in Cairo.
    It stands 2nd position in population around the world.
    There are many specialists that deal in printing press service online.
    The newspaper editors, editors who have long had to respect the wishes of the Pakistani authorities, have been quick to realize the
    potential of the Internet. This is standard cat behavior I'm probably preaching to the choir here.
