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.

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.

      1. I am sorry, I wish I knew for sure. There are many reasons cookies can become flat, but it’s hard to know, since I wasn’t there. They are a flatter cookie, so it’s ok if they were. How did they taste?
