The best EGGLESS chocolate chip cookies

I’ve been allergic to eggs my entire life and I’m always on the lookout for new no-egg recipes.  This chocolate chip recipe is the best!  People always ask if they have eggs because they are so good.  They can’t even tell.   We make these several times a month at my house and now my 11 year old has taken over some of the duties and can make them by himself.  (He usually leaves the cleaning up to me though!)

It’s also great if you like to snack on the dough!  I have to remind my kids that most people put eggs in the dough and you can’t eat it.  I think each of my three kids eat at least 2 cookies worth of dough.

The best EGGLESS chocolate chip cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla   You can make your own.  Here are the instructions to do that.  It’s REALLY easy!
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (or more):)


  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • Beat the butter with both sugar for 1 to 2 minutes, until creamy with an hand mixer (This is the one I got for my wedding and it’s still going strong).  I just got this mixer as a Christmas gift and LOVING it!
  • Add in flour and baking soda. Mix.
  • Add water, oil, and vanilla and mix.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
  • Drop by spoonful  onto the baking sheet.  I usually do about 1-2 tablespoons and put 12-16 on the cookie sheet.  Here are the ones I have and I LOVE them!
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.

The dough should not be crumbly.  It should look moist and stick together well.  You may have to go back several times with the water to get it just right.  I’ve noticed that a lot has to do with the room temperature of the butter.  If I rush things and the butter is still a little cold the dough needs more water.

  1. This looks great! I’ve yet to find a good eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe and it looks like I’ve found one!

  2. Becky says:

    This look so good, Holly. I am out of eggs as we speak so these are perfect for tonight!

  3. Marissa says:

    Interesting cookies! They definitely look like they’re worth a try 🙂

  4. Erica says:

    These look great! Egg allergies are so common now- I’m going to make these for my friends little boy the next time they come over! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Great recipe! I too am allergic to eggs….well, specifically non-organic eggs. I can have organic ones in moderation without too much trouble, but it does make baking a challenge. So glad to have this one in my recipe book 🙂

  6. Yum…they look delish! I am going to have to make these, pinning for later! Visiting from Pretty Pintastic Party.

  7. chellie says:

    These look great! I’m not allergic to eggs, but sometimes I’m out! And, I have friends that are. Nice to have this in my back pocket!

  8. Sarah says:

    Those look great! Remember to link-up again tomorrow for another Tuesday Talk!

  9. Hey girl!!! Thanks for linking up to Creative K Kid’s Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party. I’ve pinned your post to the Tasty Tuesday’s Pinterest board!!! Have a great week!!

  10. Kelly says:

    YES! THANK YOU! We are currently out of eggs so this recipe is much needed in my house!

  11. Yum! Do these come out chewy or crunchy?

  12. Kim says:

    Baking soda….or powder? You list both

    • Holly says:

      Oh my gosh! You’re right! I can’t believe I did that and hope no one made them that way. It’s baking soda! I corrected it in the post. Thanks for finding it.

  13. Sam says:

    Agh mine broke apart and did not turn out as a cookie. We ended up eating dough. But I dunno what hat happened?!

  14. Laura says:

    My cookie batter needed WAY more moisture. I had to add almost another quarter cup of water to mine to make it stick together like a normal cookie batter. It took a little longer in the oven, but they came out pretty good!

  15. Rajitha says:

    I got this recipe from Pinterest and made this now for my mother in law who will not eat eggs. This are out really awesome and we all loved it . Thanks a lot 🙂

  16. Audrey says:

    My dough came out really crumbly and definitely did not stick together. I added 1/4 cup applesauce and the dough was perfect. Cookie came out pretty good and good looking. I think if I make them again I’ll do all brown sugar, and maybe dark brown. Flavor is lacking somewhat.

  17. Rajul Gupta says:

    Hi Holly thanks so much for the Recipe. I found it on pinterest. Gr8 receipt. I agree with the dough not sticking together. it was too dry though i used a tablespoon for oil and mine was too large like a serving spoon. So i put 3 tablespoon of oil. And it formed a dough. I shaped them with hands. It tasted nice but would it be better if i reduce oil quantity and put more water instead to make the dough stick together. BTW i didn’t use baking soda. Nevertheless came out good.

  18. Lillian says:

    I’m a weirdo that can’t crack eggs (I know, I’m 28 – I should have it figured out by now). Usually my husband cracks them for me, but he wasn’t home when I got an intense craving for chocolate chip cookies. These turned out so well! My kids (7, 5 & 3) all loved them, too!

  19. Arti mundra says:

    Can we use normal sugar instead of brown sugar

  20. Momof2Terps says:

    This recipe is awesome! If you are in USA they will remind you of Entemann’s or Freihofer’s. Yum!

  21. Micky says:

    The first few times I made them they came out perfect. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. On this last batch the only thing I know for a fact I did differently was canola oil instead of veggie oil ( I was out) any other changes you can think of that would have made the cake-ish instead of cookie-ish. Butter was at room temp, maybe a little warm because it was 100° outside

  22. Jami says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this! My daughter was recently diagnosed with an egg allergy and has been craving chocolate chip cookies! She hasn’t had one for months now. These turned out delicious and she was so excited!!!!

  23. Christina says:

    I wanted to share my “vegan” experience with this (it was great, btw). Here’s what I posted on Pinterest:

    [UPDATE] Veganized: Made these with “Melt.” (Vegan butter). I made no other changes. THESE. WERE. BOMB. No one would have guessed that these were anything other than standard junk food. You do not miss the egg at all. Totally amazing. A little flat (Melt is very soft; I didn’t even allow it to come to room temperature but just used it straight out of the fridge), but I’ll take it.

    I used a stand mixer, which she does not really say to do but I found it to be great.
    Wet ingredients: beat.
    Dry ingredients: paddle.
    Second wet ingredients: paddle.

    Made on air bake sheets on a silat.

    For the second tray of cookies I put the dough in the fridge while the first tray baked b/c it’s very warm out today and the dough was already pretty soft and it had no noticeable change on the second tray.

    Thank you for such a great recipe – I’m so sick of vegan versions of stuff that taste healthy. If I want to bake chocolate chip cookies, I want them to taste like they’re wrecking my diet!!! <3

  24. Shivna says:

    Will demerara sugar work instead of brown sugar? Should the measurements be kept same if I use demerara sugar?

    • Holly says:

      You could but I think regular brown sugar works best because it has more moisture and makes the cookie a little more chewy.. Demerara is more like regular white sugar.

  25. Jacqueline Death says:

    I’m thinking of possibly baking these for a school bake-off next week, but we don’t have eggs in the house due to my sister’s allergy. Just wondering if the measurements are American cups or Australian.
    Thanks ^.^

  26. Diana says:

    Loved this recipe! Made these with my little brother and split the batter before putting in the chocolate chips. (He can’t eat chocolate for health reasons so he rolled his cookie dough in cinnamon and sugar.) I forgot to set a timer and I left the cookies in a bit long, they came out more crispy as a result.. But, because they weren’t burnt they were perfect for dipping into milk. Giving the rest of the batch to my fiancé, he gets really particular when it comes to chocolate chip cookies but hopefully he’ll love these too! What my brother and I loved the most was the consistency of the cookie dough and how easy it was to work with! Will be making these again. ?

  27. Jess says:

    Made these for my little brother, who has an egg allergy. Absolutely loved! This is now my go to recipe! Better than regular chocolate chip cookies! Thank you so much!!

  28. Savanna says:

    How many cookies is this supposed to yield?

  29. Savanna says:

    Thanks! I will be trying them tonight!

  30. Gabrielle says:

    This is my favorite chocolate cookie recipe in general! Eggs or no eggs, it’s fantastic~

  31. Melody says:

    These are the best chocolate chip cookies we have ever made!! This is by far the best recipe I have ever used. they were fluffy and so delicious. We didn’t have eggs and wanted to make cookies anyway. These are far superior to any chocolate chip cookie I have ever eaten. Thank you!

  32. Pali says:

    Hi, can I use EVOO instead of vegetable oil in this recipe, if so then how much? Also I wanted make this into a cookie cake, is it possible? How long should I bake for if I can make a cookie cake?

    • Pali says:

      Sorry didn’t mean to give your recipe a 1 star rating. I pressed it by mistake.

    • Holly says:

      I think EVOO should be okay to use. I would use the same amount. I’m not sure about a cookie cake. I think it could work if you left it in the pan and didn’t try to take it out. It would take a little longer to cook, but not sure by how much. I’ve never tried. You will need to keep an eye on it.

  33. Tiffany says:

    I am out of vegetable oil, would coconut oil work the same?

  34. becca says:

    Love this recipe! I came across some of the same crumbly issues as others the 1st time I made them. This time I soft melted the butter and used all brown sugar. Even chewier and didn’t need the extra water.

  35. Pat says:

    Absolutely delicious!! Made them for my granddaughter…..a big hit! Thank you!

  36. KSH says:

    These were great! Thank you! My son made them and he said he had to add a bit of extra water. But he also said he didn’t cream the butter. So it sounds like it’s his fault. 😉 The dough reminds me of biscuit dough and it’s perfect!

  37. patricia furlong says:

    just made them and they are a huge success in my household tonight. the kids barely let them cool down. thanks for the recipe.

  38. Amy says:

    DELICIOUS!!!!! this beats the more involved recipes i have tried over the years with eggs. these worked up exactly as described and came out perfect! i am going to share share share your link to this.

  39. Valerie says:

    Here it is 1 am, I woke up wanting chocolate chip cookies. Wouldn’t you know tho, there’s no eggs. So here I am in the kitchen about to make these cookies.

  40. Zina says:

    Heads-up, your printable doesn’t have the cooking time. 🙂

  41. Happy says:

    Can I replace choc chips with white choc chips?

  42. ashley says:

    i dont have brown sugar,what else can i use?

  43. Anonymous says:

    I’ve made this multiple times and i love them! My family loves them and ate them so quickly!

  44. Melissa says:

    So good! I used coconut oil instead of veg oil (I didn’t have any) and they came out amazing! My daughter has an egg allergy so I am always trying to recipes – this is def a keeper!

  45. Stephanie says:

    Just made these with my niece! They turned out perfect! Does anyone know how many calories these cookies contain?

  46. Nikki says:

    MEH. Maybe I should’ve used milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet. They came out looking pretty, and definitely chewy. Just a little on the bland side, and with a slight metallic taste …

  47. Sierra says:

    The first time I made these they came out perfect! That was yesterday, however, today, I made four batches, crazy right?! But they all didn’t turn out? They were all very skinny, hard and stuck to the pan, I have no idea what I did wrong, but if someone could please explain maybe what happened that would be great!

  48. Lola says:

    Wonderful receipe! ! I made these for a big event& everyone loved them! Followed receipe exactly too. Thank you! !!

  49. Sara says:

    I tried this recipe and it came out well. However, there was a sight bitter taste due to the oil. Next time I am going to try with lesser quantity of brown sugar because the cookies looked brown too!

  50. Melinda says:

    I just made this recipe because all of us were craving chocolate chip cookies, but I had no eggs. I baked this cookie in my cast iron skillet for our “pizza dessert” for 15 min and it was DELISH!!

  51. Dev says:

    This recipe rocks! I tried them today and they taste very delicious, Thank you for this!!

  52. Meher says:

    Can we use granulated brown sugar instead of packed? (I’m allergic to eggs to and got super excited when I came across this recipe since I always try to make eggless cookies but they never turn out right!)

  53. Sandi says:

    Made these today for my granddaughter’s birthday party. She is allergic to eggs. I was pleasantly surprised. They turned out great!
