The best EGGLESS chocolate chip cookies recipe

I’ve been allergic to eggs my entire life and I’m always on the lookout for new no-egg recipes.  These are best EGGLESS chocolate chip cookies EVER!  You don’t have to look any further.  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 12 year old has taken over some of the duties and can make them by himself.  (He usually leaves the cleaning up to me though!)  We’re working on that!

In fact, It’s also great if you like to snack on the dough and 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.

If you are wanting more egg free desserts, you can look under my food tab and you can click on eggless desserts.  I am adding things all the time!

The best EGGLESS Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

For those of of you that are just finding me and my recipes for the first time, I’ll tell you a little about myself.  I’m allergic to eggs and I don’t like making things I can’t eat.  My mom discovered I was allergic to eggs when I was around 6 months old- so 40 years ago.

When I was young I really just stuck to Dairy Queen ice cream, Oreos, and Chips Ahoy, and M&Ms for my any sweet treats.  Now I have more time and my kids are older to try out some recipes that I can eat. However, I still love Dairy Queen!!

Here are some more eggless recipes that you need to check out that are on my site.

Eggless Dessert Resources

If you’re like me. then you’re probably on the lookout for more recipes that are egg free.  I hate finding a recipe and clicking on it and it has an egg in it!

I I started an eggless recipe board on my personal Pinterest page and then realized that I should probably link it to my blog.  It’s great finding recipes that are egg free and when I need one I can go look and eat everything in it.

I have an EGGLESS Recipe board on Pinterest and there are a ton a great recipes.  You can follow it here.  I pin on it every week because I’m ALWAYS on the lookout for new recipes.

Here are a couple of my helpers!  How long does it take 3 people to make cookies?  In fact, it takes much longer than just me because they just don’t understand why you can’t cook a giant cookie the same time you cook a mini cookie! 🙂

I’m so glad they are getting old enough to make them without any help now!

Here’s the mixer I have and love.  They have them one sale all the time, so check it out if you’re needing a new one.


This tee is the BEST!  It comes in toddler size 2-4 and in a lot of other colors too.  It’s perfect for field trips, birthday parties, and preschool!

I have a feeling if this had been around when I was little my mom would have put this on me! I designed this tee so all profits go back to my site to buy groceries so I can make more egg free recipes!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (or more):)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Beat the butter with white and brown sugars 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.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Tips

I’ve had a few people mention that their dough is dry and crumbly. First,  it should not be crumbly and should look moist and stick together well.  You may have to go back several times with the water to get it just right.  

Second, 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.

Oh my GOODNESS.

THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST COOKIES I'VE EVER BAKED... EVER!!!!

These were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

Honestly this was absolutely amazing.

I'll be posting them tomorrow. I couldn't see an Instagram handle for you, do you have one?

Thank you for this recipe. I will use no other!

I had a craving for chocolate chip cookies today but had no eggs... I googled eggless chocolate chip cookie recipes and viola!!!! These are quite good! The only issue I had was the dough was a little crumbly at the end but I just added a few teaspoons of water and they came together perfectly! No one would know they are eggless and I am looking forward to trying more of her recipes. Thanks!
