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 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!

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.

Best eggless chocolate chip cookies EVER!

Do you have an egg allergy? Did you run out of eggs? You'll want to save this recipe. These are the BEST eggless chocolate chip cookies EVER!TIP!! – I’ve had a few people mention that their dough is dry and crumbly.  It 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.

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

 

 

I have an EGGLESS Recipe board on Pinterest.  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.

Doesn’t this look so yummy?

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

    • Dagny says:

      Just made these and they turned out chewy and good just like you said. They may not be quite as rich as when eggs are used, but I actually prefer these. I will make again and again, thank you!

  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!
    Sarah (co-host)

  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.

      • esha says:

        I made em with bakimg powder gosh lets see how they turn out

  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?!

    • Holly says:

      Was the butter soft when you started? How much did the dough crumble before you baked? It should stick together well, almost in a big ball.

    • Julia says:

      This happened to be too

  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!

    • Holly says:

      Sometimes I have to add more water too. I’m glad they came out.

  15. Rajitha says:

    @Holly,
    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.

    • Holly says:

      Yes, you have to add enough oil and water for the dough to really stick together and be moist. I’m going to take a picture next time I make these to show what the consistency should be.

      • Christine says:

        Good night could i add ground flax meal to hold it in replace of the egg

        • Holly says:

          Some recipes do call for flax but you don’t need it in this one.

  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

    • Holly says:

      I have before, but they aren’t as chewy. For best results you’ll need to use both.

  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~

    • Holly says:

      Thanks! We love it and make them a few times a month!

  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?

    • Holly says:

      I think it would. It may change the flavor a little though.

  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?

    • Kasey says:

      Brown sugar is a mix of molasses and sugar. So if you have molasses on hand put in the TOTAL amount of sugar and add some molasses in. I hate that brown sugar gets rock hard and I don’t use it all that often so I just have a bottle of molasses!

  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 …

    • Ciry says:

      The metallic taste is from the baking soda, I experienced it myself. I might use a little less next time. Besides that, these are quite satisfactory, they just do have a longer cooking time than most cookies do – maybe it’s the water – definitely listen to the 10-12 recommendation and err on the side of longer.

  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!)

    • Holly says:

      You can try, but I think the packed brown sugar makes them chewy. The granulated brown sugar will make it crumby.

  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!

  54. La says:

    Made these for my little one with an egg allergy. Delicious! Didn’t alter the recipe at all. Thank you!

  55. Jon says:

    Used this recipe several times. Delicious. The dough is slightly crumbly, but I find it can be resolved by forming the cookie in my hand for about 20 seconds before putting it down. If in the shape of a ball, it will settle nicely. I needed 14 minutes in the oven on a stone cooking sheet. I let them sit for about an hour to cool to a perfect texture before removing from the cooking tray. I personally find the after taste of these cookies way better than homemade egg versions.

  56. Norma says:

    These cookies are great

  57. Lydia says:

    Next time I will add a teaspoon of salt (unless using salted butter) and applesauce for flavor and consistency. Good starter recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  58. Tara says:

    Okay. Please people. Before you rate the recipe, try it out first! I was astounded in reading the reviews that so many people gave it high ratings along with the comments “can’t wait to try it, looks great” etc …
    Well, I made these as instructed and they are horribly crumbly, do not hold together at all. When I went back to reread comments, it was common feedback amount THOSE WHO ACTUALLY MADE the cookies.

    • Holly says:

      I have a part in the recipe that says the dough should not be crumbly. I went back and put it in bold because it seems like you (and others) missed that part. It states that you should go back and add water a few times to get the right consistency. You should try making it again. It’s a great recipe.

    • Donna says:

      Add a bit more water, and knead the dough with your hands in the bowl, until it’s smooth.

  59. Stephanie says:

    Not sure why so many people said their dough is dry and crumbly. It’s like they never added the oil, water and vanilla… If they had there’s just no possible way it crumbled. I love this recipe I know it by heart now I’ve made it for my family at least ten times now. Thank you.

  60. Divya says:

    Hey wanted to know is your measurements according to 1cup-200 ml because in India we have this measurement

    • Holly says:

      I looked online and it converts to 200 ml plus 2- 15 ml spoons.

  61. Jana says:

    I tried this today because my brother is allergic to eggs and it works.

  62. ELISABETH SANDERS says:

    Thanks a million for posting this! My toddler was just diagnosed with egg and milk allergies. I substituted the butter with a mixture of lard and Crisco. I also added a dash of salt and they were great! I am so glad my little munchkin can have a cookie treat now and then!

  63. Donna says:

    These cookies came out great .. I used about 1/2 t more water, and used hands to knead the dough together. I love the recipe because it uses so little sugar, as well as no eggs. High-five on this one!

  64. Julie Wander says:

    Wow that hit the spot!! You know how you are hungry for a chocolate chip cookie and you don’t have eggs? Thank God I found this recipe. I’m not allergic to eggs but I tried it anyways. I added a little extra oil instead of water. They came out excellent thank you.

  65. Paul says:

    These are great. Didn’t last ten minutes. By far best eggless recipe I’ve ever had.

  66. Robin says:

    These cookies were as good as any regular chocolate chip cookies. I actually liked the eggless recipe better than the regular cookie recipe we were using. The texture is really good…chewy and crispy. Glad that these don’t just work for food allergies, but non food allergy people will never know they are egg free.

  67. starrrspotlite says:

    Wow! These cookies turned out amazing. Thank you for this amazing recipe.

  68. Ellis says:

    If they’re too crumbly just add milk til it’s the right consistency x

  69. Olivia says:

    Sooooo amazing! Probably the best chocolate cookies I’ve tasted and made! Thanks so much.

  70. Patty Q says:

    I baked these chocolate chip cookies for my 2 year old granddaughter who is allergic to eggs and they were delicious!!!! I made them exactly as recipe suggests and added maybe an additional tablespoon of water to make them creamy and fluffy. Thank you!!!!

  71. Laura Oueddir says:

    Awesome recipe since I was out of eggs! 2 comments after making these. 1) like others, my dough was way too dry. Instead of adding more water, however, I added about a quarter cup of apple sauce. 2) am I the only one that noticed that there is no salt in this recipe? I didn’t want to risk it so I added 1/4 teaspoon salt to my dough. Not only does it help the flavor but, baking soda needs the reaction with the salt in order to actually create a rise in baked goods.

  72. Sarah says:

    Wait is the butter supposed to be solid when you beat it?

  73. Surbhi ranka says:

    The best chocochip cookies i ever made!!

  74. rain says:

    Im making a batch for my mom and brother because their ellergic to eggs

  75. Josie says:

    Hi Holly, thank you so much for posting this recipe, my child is anaphylactic to eggs, it’s hard to find good recipes. I will try to make it next weekend, and keep you posted

  76. cece says:

    Just made these and they were AMAZING!! Thank you!

  77. Nandanie says:

    Love these!! These taste amazing and i can’t even tell that it doesn’t have eggs in it. I definitely had to add a few more tablespoons to the batter to get it to that cookie dough consistency. Your recipe was perfect! I’ve already shared this with like 5 people 🙂 thanks so much!!

  78. kelly says:

    disaster recipe – remove from site

  79. Janna says:

    Love this recipe! I’ve made it at least 3 times in the last 2 weeks. Perfect for those who want to stay away from dairy and eggs. Follow the recipe exactly though; the first time I made them I used almond flour and EVOO AND it morphed into one big, strange cookie pancake, lol. Went back to your original recipe and they’ve been perfect.

  80. SR says:

    Indeed the best!!! I needed 1 more tbsp water, otherwise perfect! It’s very forgiving too – I’ve tried it with 1 cup white whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup almond flour and it came out PERFECTLY!!
    Many many thanks!

  81. Melissa Burch says:

    Ran out of eggs and found your recipe. Figured it was worth a try instead of bundling up and going out in the cold. I am SO happy I tried! These are delicious!! Thank you for sharing!

    • Melissa Burch says:

      I think I hit 4 Stars, I meant to hit 5!! These are great!

  82. Bailey says:

    Honestly, i have been looking around on different websites and different recipes for the perfect chocolate chip cookie and i have finally found it :’). Every other recipe i have tried that were eggless/vegan they ended up flat and absolutely horrible. THESE COOKIES ARE PEFECT!! their thick and moist and soo yummy. Thank you SO much for this amazing recipe!! ( their even better made with coconut oil, or mixed in with some coconut flakes)

  83. Amber Maas says:

    These are the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made! Thank you for the recipe!

  84. Lois Charles says:

    Are they not get thick i think my baking soda not any good they just got flat but taste very good got out of oven when a little thick then went flat right away any answers to my prob

  85. Rose Forrest says:

    Best cookies I’ve made! Followed directions just added more water and came out soft and chewy!

  86. Amy N. says:

    My daughter and I just made a batch of these for our neighbor who is allergic to eggs. They came out terrific! One addition: about 1/2 -1 tsp of salt is needed and we added a few more drops of water to get it to the correct consistancy. But absolutely wonderful!!

  87. nikki says:

    Hi Holly, thank you so much for this recipe! the cookies are good – I am surprised that cookies can be good, have color and hold together without eggs! I am not egg free but I dont have eggs right now but wanted cookies. These fit the bill!

  88. susan says:

    Has anyone tried coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and if so, how did they turn out if you did?

    • Holly says:

      I have not tried coconut oil.

      • Arvind says:

        I did. And also used jaggery (half cup) instead of brown sugar. Used 2 tsp of coffee ( as South Indians we need our caffeine in all forms). Tastes awesome. Thank you Holly

    • Me=) says:

      I made these today using Coconut oil. This will be my new go to cookie recipe! My family enjoyed them =) I did use an extra tablespoon of oil and a tip more water than the recipe called for.

  89. Maria says:

    Winter weather has got me craving a glass of warm milk and chocolate chip cookies. The problem…ran out of eggs! This recipe came to the rescue and it was delicious. From the comments I read, I did add 1/4 cups of water to get the dough moist which was perfect! The only other thing I would recommend is to use canola oil instead of vegetable oil. Personally, I always taste the vegetable oil and canola oil doesn’t leave that slight aftertaste. Other than that the recipe is perfect! Thanks, Holly:)

  90. Jessi says:

    I followed the recipe exactly except I put the butter in the microwave until it just started to melt. These were there most delicious, and easiest, chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever made! Hubby is calling them the best cookies on Earth. Thank you so much for this recipe! Perfect cookie!!

  91. Jessi says:

    Ok, so actually…I just went to make these again and realized I did substitute some things, but all amounts were exactly as you have them. I used Imperial vegetable oil spread (stick) and dark brown sugar. Also I used Hershey’s special dark chocolate chips. I mixed everything by hand with a metal soon and baked on parchment paper for 14 minutes. Thanks again for an amazing cookie recipes, eggs or no eggs, best cookie, hands down!

  92. Zoe says:

    You had brown sugar on the list but in your instructions you never said to add it so I completely and totally forgot the brown sugar hope it wasn’t needed.

    • Zoe says:

      I correct myself you did say add both sugar but maybe you should of boldened the word BOTH.

    Instead of using brown sugar I substituted a tablespoon of molasses. It cut down on the sugar and made it more moist. I added a little extra salt to mine because I think it makes for a richer taste, and we used chocolate chunks instead of morsels because who doesn’t love a chocolate chunk cookie?! Thanks for the recipe– it is wonderful!

  94. Kamille Brewer says:

    I loved the recipe!! I didn’t have any eggs and didn’t want to get any due to the snow. I put the stick of buter in microwave for 20 sec and added the extra water you suggested. Thanks

  95. Arvind says:

    I just baked a batch using your recipes. I added two heaped teaspoons of instant coffee and half a cup of raisins. It looks and tastes lovely. I have to feed a dozen vegetarians and this is a godsend. Thanks a lot

  96. Gk says:

    Tried the recipe today. Cookies have baked well but I taste baking soda while chewing them😒please help

    • Holly says:

      Is your baking soda old? Did you accidentally use 1 tablespoon instead of a 1 teaspoon? Did you mix long enough? If it’s none of those, try adding 1/2 teaspoon next time. Let me know how they turn out.

  97. Kirstie says:

    My daughter just made these and they were wonderful! We don’t eat animal products, and I have a wonderful chocolate chip cookie recipe that calls for coconut oil, but my daughter doesn’t like the taste, so she found this recipe and gave it a try. They are delicious! My 3 year old grandson, who does not like sweets, scarfed them down! They were not crumbly at all and did not have a funny taste. Please, before you blame the person who’s giving you their recipe, read ALL of the instructions, and make sure your measurements are correct. Anyone that had a problem with these cookies obviously did something wrong.

    • Holly says:

      I don’t really like a strong coconut flavor in my cookies either. Glad you liked these.

  98. Jess says:

    Love this recipe! Thank you! It’s a lot of trial and error when baking without eggs, so I’m glad I now have a go-to cookie recipe. 🙂

  99. Dee says:

    I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, because it’s what I had on hand. So good! Can’t taste the difference from regular cookie dough/cookies made with egg

  100. Anjaya Anshuman says:

    Hey, I was just wondering if you could substitute water with milk?
    Would it still turn out well? I’m just curious 🙂

  101. These are the best cookies yet. No one has an egg allergies here but I prefer this recipie over all the others. I did add maybe 2 extra teaspoons of water and 2 extra of vanilla extract to make the dough less crumbly. I find extra vanilla flavor gives it that extra kick.

    Thank you for creating this recipe!!

  102. Crystal says:

    I am also allergic to gluten. Have you or any of your followers tried to sub gf flour in these? I have the worst time finding gf AND vegan recipes!

    • Millie says:

      I just made some cookies with the Pillsbury Gluten-free all-purpose flour and it turned out fine. It had an odd texture but otherwise it was fine! I’m not sure about other flours though, you’ll have to do some trial and error! ^.^

  103. Kate says:

    Can I freeze the cookies?

  104. Ann says:

    Very nice to have a recipe for when I have no eggs! Had to add water for crumbly dough, but that’s easy- just a little at a time and stop before it gets sticky. The taste is GREAT (um…so is the dough) and the texture had a sugar topping feel. We loved it.

  105. Krys says:

    I saw many comments saying the moisture wasn’t enough, so I added more water, but I added too much (?). Either way. This cookie recipe it awesome! I also added peanuts. I’ll certainly be sticking this in my Pepperplate app for future, impromptu cookie cravings.

  106. Priya says:

    Great recipe. I used 2/3rds whole wheat flour and 1/3rd unbleached all purpose flour and they turned out really good! Used a little extra water though. Thank you so much!! Next time I am thinking I’ll use applesauce instead of the extra water.

  107. La says:

    🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 THANK YOU for sharing this amazing recipe! Can’t wait for my 5 yr old with food allergies (peanut/tree nut/egg/sesame) to try these! 💓💓💓

  108. Jen says:

    These were amazing…And I NEVER leave reviews. I made these for co-workers that don’t eat eggs and I can honestly say I don’t think I’ll ever go back to the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  109. Julie says:

    I just made these and they taste amazing 😍 When I was making them I needed it add a little extra butter and water but they turned out great!!

  110. Julie says:

    Love them

  111. Darlene says:

    I tried them, they turned out well.
    I followed the instructions, but I needed to add some water and form them by hand. At 10 min. they fell apart so I left the next dozen I left them in for 11 min.

  112. Shannon says:

    Hi, made these once before and they are great! This time I’m Thinking about replacing the oil with applesauce. Do you think they would turn out ok?

    • Holly says:

      I’ve never tried it, but I think it would turn out ok. Let me know how it works.

  113. LouAnn says:

    Excellent recipe, and I’m picky. My kid has an egg allergy, and these were a hit with the whole family.

  114. Jen says:

    Hey, I was hesitant on making these as I didn’t think they’d actually taste good. Especially without the egg. I was pleasantly surprised. As a matter of fact, my family and I prefer these over the regular chocolate chip cookie. I added a half cup milk chocolate chips and then half white and they were delicious. I also adjusted the baking time. I took them out at 9 – 10 minutes. They were slightly soft. And once cooled they were still soft but soft cookie soft, not under done. I have plans to try these with changing the sugars to a more healthier version but for now, these work. And they kept on the counter in a Mason jar just fine! They didn’t last long so I cannot say how long they would last. I would say at least 4 days at the soft stage 🙂

  115. Louise Johnson says:

    I just made these and followed the recipe exactly – they are literally the best cookies I’ve ever made. This will be my go to recipe from now on

  116. Jennifer says:

    My son is allergic to eggs, and this is by far the BEST eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe we’ve tried! Thank you so much for sharing this!

  117. Sarah says:

    Turned out great!

  118. Molly says:

    Hello,

    I always thought eggs gave me acid reflux, but I was recently diagnosed with eiosoniphilic esophagitis and now know that eggs are a trigger. I now try to avoid eggs all the time. Adjusting to eggless baking is a challenge, but your cookie recipe is so good and simple! Thank you! I’m thrilled to have such a great eggless cookie recipe! Time to tackle cake!

  119. M says:

    I doubled the recipe so I had to add a lot more water to get a good consistency. But they turned out amazing! They taste like my grandma’s – which is the best compliment I can give!

  120. Jean says:

    I appreciate your simple tasty recipe. I woke up wanting chocolate chip cookies, but (thought) I was out of eggs. I looked up a recipe that didn’t need eggs and was very pleased to find yours.

    I did need to add a little more water, but they turned out fantastic.

    Thanks again.

  121. Amber says:

    These are really good and super easy to make. Thank you for an egg-free recipe.

  122. Joanne says:

    The cookies turn out soooo good. I’ve made them twice now. Really great recipe! 😁 Thanks

  123. Ritu says:

    My 8 year old egg-allergic kiddo made these mostly on her own (minus the oven part), and they turned out fantastic! We even swiped and ate some of the cookie dough! Thanks for a super manageable and yummy recipe, and a feeling of success to start off what I’m pretty sure will be a long career of baking! 🙂

  124. Nancy says:

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Our 2 year old Grandson is allergic to eggs but his 4 year old brother is not. I wanted a treat for the 2 year old so he wouldn’t feel left out but these cookies are SO good everybody wants them…especially their Dad! It’s a huge hit at Grandma;s house
    and I can’t wait to try your other eggless recipe’s. What a game changer!!

  125. Denise says:

    My cookie batch turned out gigantic even though I dropped them with a tbsp. The entire pan was full of a giant cookie haha but delicious nonetheless. Did anybody else have giant cookies?

    • Anastasia says:

      Did you make these with margarine instead of butter? Sometimes this will happen if you use margarine, it spreads a lot more than butter does. If you do use margarine, you have to start with it cold.

  126. Michelle says:

    OMG these are so amazing that I am going to share the link in facebook..I did add about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon though I find it boosts the taste of the chocolate , I do that in many recipes containing chocolate (all except white) ..Again thanks for the recipe ..It is a definitely one I will be making again.

    • Holly says:

      Great tip on the cinnamon. I’ll try it next time.

  127. Dhanashree says:

    The recipe is great!! Awesome cookies!!

  128. Caitlin Collin says:

    I added 1/2 a tsp salt to the batter and I doubled the amount of water and oil used. They turned out perfect!

  129. Hiral says:

    I tried his recipe and that too for the first time I made cookies! Since I am a pure vegetarian this was a blessing! They turned out delicious and the general review was that it was cafe quality! So I was thrilled! Thanks Holly!

  130. Holly,

    Thanks for this recipe! My 20 month old grandson has the top 8 allergies plus almonds and cats. I adapted this by using Melt butter (and I softened it in microwave for 20 seconds), Canola oil, Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips and Red Mill Gluten free flour. They are absolutely delicious!! The dough was so yummy!! I’m taking them to the beach next week!! Hopefully my adaptations will help others with multiple allergies!! Thank you!!

  131. Pearlie Jones says:

    This cookies are awesome my girls and i just finished baking them and tried one and wow…. thanks for sharing

  132. kris4christ2 says:

    Made these earlier. Very good. I had no eggs and was craving choc. chip cookies. The dough tastes great! I let the butter sit out to get soft. I used a little bit of whole wheat flour. I added 1 more Tbsp of water. I mixed these by hand. I formed 2 (level) Tbsp of dough into a ball for each cookie. Counting for the dough we ate before cooking, there were about 14 cookies. I wanted to make a second batch, but it got too late. My toddler enjoyed these. They baked in a toaster oven for 12 min, and they probably could have gone another minute or two. Mine were round/dome-shaped, kinda like a muffin top lol. They smelled and looked more like pancakes, but luckily didn’t taste like them! Next time, I plan to use less sugar, and just 1 Tbsp dough per cookie.

  133. kylin halleck says:

    i just tried these, and i find as if these are better than when i use eggs ! i absolutely love these, thank you ! <3 🙂

  134. katy says:

    I love them!!😊😊

  135. Elizabeth says:

    Made the dough and baked them inside the windshield of my car on a very hot day (The oven thermometer we used registered a temperature of almost 200°!). The cookies were amazing. Will make again— maybe use the oven next time.

  136. Anita says:

    Lovely and worth trying recipe! Just one question – Can the all purpose flour be replaced with whole wheat flour?

    • Holly says:

      I wouldn’t do all whole wheat, maybe half white and half whole wheat would work.

  137. Miranda says:

    We ran out of eggs so I looked up a recipe and this one was postitive. They turned out delicious!! I thought that the wet ingredient measurements were perfect for me I just used a hand mixer for a little longer to bring it all together. I didn’t have vanilla, so I used two spoonfuls of peanut butter and added it with the butter and sugars and it worked great!

  138. Hannah Gonzales says:

    They taste great but for some reason my batch had a interesting potato taste.

  139. Kate says:

    Tried this recipe exactly as listed and found the centre of the cookies were doughy, even after I left them in for 14 minutes instead of the recommended 12. Not sure what happened. Perhaps they need to be pressed down flatter so that they cook evenly? The outside was crunchy, bottom was a golden brown, but the centre tasted uncooked. Anyone else have this problem? Also found the flavour was a bit lacking when they cooled down.

  140. Cate says:

    I just made these for a playdate for someone who doesn’t eat eggs and they’re fabulous! I eat eggs, but like them just as much as regular chocolate chip cookies. I did add 1/2 tsp of salt to make them a bit more like the traditional recipe I used but otherwise didn’t change anything. And the kids had fun making them and trying the dough since it’s egg free. Thank you!!!

  141. Katie says:

    Do you think this recipe would work with non-dairy butter?

    • Holly says:

      Yes- My brother is allergic to milk and we use non-dairy butter.

  142. Mccoya says:

    Made these today and my whole family liked them better than my usual recipe with eggs. I loved them as well and will continue to make them as they are way easier to make than my previous recipe.

  143. Chris McDonald says:

    Substitute the vegetable oil for a good fruity extra virgin olive oil and change the water to 3 tablespoons of red wine.

    Side note. The crumblyness of the dough has nothing to do with the temperature of the butter. That is of course if you have properly creamed the butter. (By first beating the butter by itself for 2 minutes, then gradually adding the sugar and beating for a further 6-8 minutes.) it comes down to the simple fact of the inaccurate method of scaling ingredients by volume rather then by weight.

    There have been instances I’m sure where you have added to much of one dry indgredient and have had to compensate along down the line. Therefore introducing inconsistencies in the final product. Which makes recipe creation a bitch.

  144. Rucha says:

    Is it okay to use only white sugar instead of brown sugar?
