How do I thicken cookie dough without flour?!

Question: How do I thicken cookie dough without flour?
I made a cookie dough using the following:

2 cups corn starch plus
2 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup Splenda
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
couple dashes of ginger
Splash of vanilla caramel coffee creamer (I was playing it by ear and used what I have on hand)

The batter is two runny and liquefies when I try to bake it. I have no flour or baking powder or cream of tartar or oats (all are suggestions I've been told to use). I have baking soda, cornstarch, eggs...and various other things like granola bars and cereal but I'm not sure if anything like that can be ground up to use as a thickener.

Any suggestions?


Eggs... But it will give it a cakier consistency once baked

You can try adding some more cornstarch but only add a little bit at a time and work each bit in to see if it thickens to the desired consistency.

Another option would be to crush up some granola bars (very fine) and incorporate that into the mix (again only adding a little bit at a time and working each bit in). I think you'll find this would thicken the dough and also add a nice crunch / flavour.


Is it because you don't have any or youre not using wheat?
Soy flour
ground flax seed(flax meal)
Ground nuts, walnuts, almonds....
oatmeal , granola other hot cereal
other dry cereals, like crushed corn flakes
corn meal/ corn muffin mix
pancake mix
other cookies, graham crackers, animal crackers
Biscuit mix, pie crust mix cake mix, ....any package mixes.

Hope that helps, Ive used most of these in some form or another

peanut butter?
cocoa powder?
out it in the fridge for awhile.
