My kids are doing online school right now so I have a chance to sit down and do a little work on a new eggless recipe! I’ve been working on this awhile, but just haven’t gotten the chance to type it up!

We’ve been trying to stay busy since we are stuck in the house during the quarantine and that means a lot of baking and cooking. I can tell you right now that I’m tired of cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, I can bake all day long, especially if it’s egg free and who doesn’t love homemade peanut butter cookies!

Eggless Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

If you’re new to my site, then you may not know much about me. I’m allergic to eggs and have been my whole life. Also, I don’t like to make desserts that I can’t eat.

I shared a few recipes on my site and people loved them and started to get tons of requests. I’m not a a trained chef, just a mom, but I got more comfortable in the kitchen as I tried to create more recipes.

Now, my eggless recipes are the most popular on my site and I try to do them more and more.

Eggless Recipe Resources

I started a Facebook page called Egg Free Desserts. I share my recipes and others that I find. If you have a request or want to ask a question, that’s the easiest way to get in touch with me.

If you are more of a Pinterest person (like me), I’ve created an Eggless Dessert board where I share recipes I find. I like Pinterest more, so I share more recipes here than Facebook. It requires less work and it’s easier to go back and look at them all! 😉
