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.

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!!

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 pin on it every week because I’m ALWAYS on the lookout for new recipes.

Ingredients for No Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Butter (1 stick)- I normally use salted butter because that’s what I normally have in my refrigerator.
  • White sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • All-purpuse flour
  • Baking soda
  • Vanilla extract- You can make your own.  Here are the instructions to do that.  It’s REALLY easy!
  • Water
  • Vegetable oil
  • Chocolate chips (or more):)

Directions for Egg Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 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.
  • 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.

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. 

Just a quick friendly reminder: I would absolutely LOVE it if you could drop some feedback in the comment section for these mouthwatering blueberry muffins. A shiny 5-star rating would be awesome! Your ratings really make a difference for others looking for new and tasty recipes. Thanks a bunch!

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.

My daughter is allergic to eggs, and this recipe was great! We needed to add a half cup more of water in the end. Thank you for making such a great egg free recipe!

I found the cookie dough was perfect, nice & moist and it stuck together, i did think at the start when I was mixing it it seemed abit dry but as I continued to mix it the mixture got more moist. The difference I did was I used room temperature margarine, that had been out of the fridge for a few hours,

I used.. 5 tablespoons of Margie 1 1/2 tablespoons of water 2 tablespoons of oil & 2 teaspoons of vanilla.. (I always add extra just cause)

If you had to use extra water maybe just add extra vanilla?

Still waiting for them to come out of the oven :)
