Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies

No Eggs?! Or Allergic? No Worries!

We’ve all had moments where we wanted to bake a treat, only to realize there are ingredients missing. Or maybe there is a food allergy and you still want to indulge? Well this simple recipe is quick, easy, and only requires a handful of ingredients!

Purpose of an egg in cookies: Eggs are used in baking to help add structure, flavor and moisture to a recipe. You can simply make your favorite cookie recipe without egg but you’ll notice they’ll be flatter and crispier than other cookies (Which for some people is their dream cookie.) We want to share an adjusted cookie recipe that uses ingredients, in place of the egg, to keep the structure, moisture and flavor we associate with chocolate chip cookies.

Eating the dough: Even though the dough no longer contains raw egg you still need to be cautious of consuming raw flour. If you want to ensure the dough is safe to eat, then bake your flour in the oven at 350°F for 5-10 minutes. Cool the flour and mix up the recipe. You can now sneak bites of dough carefree.

Cookie dough with no eggs


Storage: Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days at room temperature or for up to 3 months in the freezer. 

Frozen dough: You can also freeze the dough to be baked later. Place scooped dough balls onto a cookie sheet, then place it in the freezer. Once the balls are solid transfer them to a freezer safe container. Freeze for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to bake, place them on a baking sheet and allow them to sit for about 15 minutes before putting them in the oven. You may need to adjust the bake time to account for the colder dough.

    My family loves these cookies! I can’t believe there is no egg in the dough yet they are so delicious!

  3. 5 stars
    A cookie recipe that requires no eggs? Perfect recipe if you dont have eggs or cant eat eGgs. Great tasting amd easy!

  4. 5 stars
    I Didn’t think about raw flour. Thanks for the tip. I love eating cookie dough and now I can without that little voice I usually bury.

  5. I made this recipe and it was really good. My only issue was they was to flat. Any tips on how i can fix this next time? Thank you

    1. Glad you liked them! There are a few reasons cookies go flat, but it’s hard to know, since I wasn’t right there with you. Your best best is to google reasons cookies do that, so you will know what to avoid.

    I feel like this is a decent recipe to experiment with if you’re a beginner in the kitchen, or with cookies at least. The base recipe tastes like a bland pancake when finished. Definitely add more chocolate chips or play around with flavors. Or, you can even make Brookies (brownie-cookies) with it, that’s a good idea!

  7. Thanks so much for this!! I tried this but my cookies were hard has rocks after they cooled down. What may have I done wrong? Not enough milk? Thanks again!

    The recipe was easy enough to follow, but tastes too sugary and spread a ton. The ratio of flour to sugar is 1:1, and just seemed off from what I am used to. These cookies aren’t for me.

    These cookies didn’t work, I made them exactly how they were supposed to be and they wont cook, I have had them in the oven for 40 minutes and they are not cooking. Yummy dough though!

    1. I did substitute coconut sugar for regular sugar. They turned out awesome, but I will try regular sugar as well!

    Not sure what went wrong but these were the worst I’ve ever made. Super dry batter so added more water, seemed like a decent dough in the end but they came out so dry and flavorless. Cardboard. Saw another recipe that called for milk instead of water; maybe that would have helped. Obviously it worked better for everyone else.
