Egg Free Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Ok, seriously, this is THE BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe and it doesn't have any eggs in it! My son is allergic to both Eggs and Peanuts so I have had to learn how to bake without them. So if you run out of eggs or want to watch your cholesterol, try this recipe. Or just try it anyways, you can't even taste the difference!

1/2 C Butter (it is better to use butter so they don't flatten. You could also use half Crisco half butter or half margarine to make it a little more healthy)
1/3 C Sugar
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1 1/2 C Flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp Vanilla (better if you use real vanilla)
3 TBSP Vegetable Oil
Chocolate Chips

Cream together the butter and sugars (usually around 2 to 3 minutes, I just set my kitchenaid)
Slowly add in Flour and baking soda (mix will be dry after this step)
Add in Vanilla and Oil and cream together for another 2 to 3 minutes or until dough consistency
Add Chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 min max. When you pull them out, they should barely be golden, almost doughy looking. Leave them on baking sheet for about 5 more minutes then transfer to cooling racks.
SO Delicious! Enjoy! :)

Had to add half a cup of applesauce to get a dough consistency because it wouldn't stick together without it. Cookies turned out pretty tasty, though definitely different than recipes with eggs.

I made exactly as recipe called and they turned out PERFECT. I was unsure when flour was added, but once the vanilla and oil were in, it was all good.

I just made these. These are the first chocolate chip cookies I have made since we have been egg free, soy free. They worked very well. They were tasty and held together well. I will be making them again. Thank you. Do you mind if I link back to you from my blog? I am compiling a list of egg free cookie recipes.

Wow - thank you soooo much for sharing your recipe. This is the best chocolate chip cookie one I've tried (I've had a lot of disasters before and this came out perfect).

Me and the people i shared the cookies with LOVED them. I did have to add about 4 tbs of water to help the dough stick together. other then that this is a amazing and delicious recipe. ill definitely be making it again !

Liz said...

I made these and they turned out great, but they were a little too sweet for me. I added a half teaspoon sea salt to give it a sweet and savory flavor. The texture was great.

CaraBrown said...

LOVE this! Thanks so much for sharing! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup rolled oats, added a dash of salt and mixed Craisin's in with the chocolate chips.

CaraBrown said...

OH! And I also rolled them in wheat germ right before baking!

Andy said...

Fantastic!!! They were devoured and loved by all!!

One quibble---not with the cookies or recipe--with the comment that margarine is healthier than butter---Butter is THE healthiest alternative to either margarine or Crisco--and it tastes better as well---yes you are getting saturated animal fat with butter---but it's not hydrogenated or trans fat like in the others----stick with butter.
And once again the cookies are wonderful!!

I just made these. My daughter is allergic to eggs, nuts and dairy. I used 1/4c of canola oil and 1/4 cup of applesauce instead of 1/2c oil. I also threw in a huge handful of flaxseeds. Next round will try the whole wheat and rolled oats as another person mentioned. Thanks for the recipe. Its a keeper AND EASY!!!

Taste like Chips A'Hoy, which don't have eggs which is why I don't like them. Chips A'Hoy uses a mold to get height, these were big, flat, flops. Back to the drawing board. I think I'm going with me Little Men experiments using sour cream. I made one pan and have revamped the recipe because they were such a failure.

Cant wait to try this for my son who is egg-free soy-free. Is there anyway you can add a picture so I can pin-it to my egg-free board.

Lindsey B. said...

Thanks for the recipe! We don't have any allergies in our home - just kids who wanted fresh-baked cookies and no eggs in the fridge! I tweaked it a little to make them double-chocolate. I added a 1/2 cup cocoa powder and a tbsp of milk to get a good 'sticking' consistancy. Very tasty!

Haley McAdams said...

Amazingly easy and really looks deliciou. I'm definitely craving for a plate of that right now. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a must do recipe this weekend since I got my ISO 22000 Training.

nableWe just made these and as my 11 year old said, "The dough is delicious, these are the best cookies we have ever made!" These cookies are delicious, thank you for sharing your recipe. I will use this cookie recipe from now on in my house, and we bake a LOT of cookies, all year round!

Blonde Always said...

This recipe is amazing! My sister and I wanted to make cookies to surprise our family, but we didn't have any eggs. I looked up recipes and we decided to try this one. The cookies are surprisingly tasty and only slightly crumbly. I went with exactly what the recipe said and they turned out really delicious.

Marci Worlton said...

I am allergic to eggs as well, so glad you had this recipe. Would you add a picture of them so that I could 'Pin' it on Pinterest?

I tried this cookie recipe last night for my nephews. They are allergic to eggs. I made a mistake and added 1 teaspoon baking soda and I added 3 teaspoons of vanilla and 6 ounces of chocolate chips. I baked them for 14 minutes and let them rest in the pan for 5 minutes. They were delicious and chewy. My niece couldn't tell that there wasn't any eggs. We ate a little of the dough. Thank you so very much. Mary

Yummy yummy! A great recipe with great results. Had to add a few tbs of water also to get them to stick together but otherwise perfect! Thank you

Feralique said...

Made these today with my girls. Awesome! I had no oil so just added a little bit of boiling water to get to the dough consistancy. Massive hit in our house!

Laura said...

Yum! Made them according to the recipe and they came out perfect! I was worried they would not stick together, but they did! I used butter and I rolled them into balls. I made bigger cookies so I cooked them a bit longer and they were so good! I used dark chocolate chunks, and my 2 year old helped. Thanks for the great recipe :)

Unknown said...

This recipe is super yummy. I've made them once so far, following the recipe to a "t," and I didn't have any problems like those mentioned above with the dough not sticking together.

The only thing I think I will attempt to adjust for is to add some sea salt next time, to counter the super sweetness.

For those of you requesting a pic to use for pinterest, I've pinned this recipe here (with my own pic): http://pinterest.com/pin/132152570287161933/

I am making these for the second time. We are nut, egg, casein and gluten free. I subbed earth balance sticks for butter, and King Arthur Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix. I added a half teaspoon af salt also. The key to subbing gluten free flour I find is mixing well and adding flour slowly. They turned out amazing. Thank you for a great recipe!

An Observer said...

Great recipe! I'm egg-free so I was overjoyed to find this. Had to add another tablespoon of oil to get it all sticking together, and even then it was still very crumbly - but once I hand rolled some balls it was fine.
Several people have commented saying it was too sweet - I only used a total of a 1/4 cup of sugar. With the chocolate you don't need nearly so much. I used to be sugar free when I was younger so I don't like my cookies too sweet. They still worked perfectly fine with the amount of sugar I used, although the taste of the oil came through a bit more than it probably would've otherwise.

Serina said...

there is no image, so i cant share this on pinterest...consider adding an image so i can share this amazing recipe with my family and friends. It worked perfectly...i had to add three tsp of water to make it blend up and it turned out fantastic...i am making them again tonight!

amy mcdonald said...

i wanted cookies without butter or eggs but my sister said that we need on or the other sooo guess what we didnt make cookies ............ thx

Mary P said...

Sounds like a very delicious recipe!
BTW you said use margarine instead of butter to make it more healthy.... not true. Margarine is one of the unhealthiest things you can put in your mouth!

abigail jackson said...

After the great reviews on this recipe, I was ready to make them! But, I read the ingredients and the Butter how margarine or crisco is healthier?? That was so foolish!

Kalynn Phillips said...

This recipe was easy and came out great! Love it because you can make it your own easily!! Thank you so much for sharing!

Just made these wonderful cookies, and my whole family loved them! Great for lacto-vegetarians like me, as they don't require eggs! I used dark chocolate chips instead, and I had to add about 3 teaspoons of water to get the dough to stick- although I regret not adding more water because I feel they would've turned out better that way, but I'll be sure to add some more next time. If anyone is interested in seeing a picture of how my cookies turned out, I have one on Instagram (tarlinxo). They taste as good as they look ;)

Anthea said...

Oh my gosh! These are perfection! I didn't know how they would turn out because usually I make cookies with eggs but I had none left in my fridge and really wanted to make cookies and to my utter surprise these were delicious!!! Going to put this recipe in safe keeping :)

Tiff said...

Best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever used--egg free or otherwise! I thought the dough was just right without adding water or other moisture.

Nate & Mem Frosland said...

great recipe! I ran out of eggs and wanted cookies. Added 1/2 cup (ish peanut butter, YUM!
