Best Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Eureka! Eureka! that's what I screamed once I tasted these eggless chocolate chip cookies. I have baked crispy and chewy variety of chocolate chip cookies without eggs earlier, but hands down this is the BEST.

This eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks "The Joy of Vegan Baking". I didn't have non dairy butter and non dairy semi sweet chocolate chips, so used regular butter and semi sweet chocolate chips. Other than that I did not make any changes in the recipe. The cookies turned out awesome. Crisp around the edges and chewy in the center. Just perfect. If you want to bake eggless chocolate chip cookies, then this is the recipe you must have.

Since chocolate chip cookie recipes are the most favorite cookies among kids and grown ups, getting it right especially egg free is definitely a very big deal. I have a lot of chocolate chip cookie recipe without eggs in the blog but this version has become my all time favorite. The taste and texture cannot get any perfect than these. Recently I tried the vegan version of these cookies too and it's not a surprise that it turned out awesome!

This eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe is definitely a keeper.

PS: Bake these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies if you are looking for a different variety of chocolate chip cookies.

The best eggless chocolate chip cookies ever. These cookies are crisp around the edges and chewy inside, with an addictive taste. Fir a chocolate chip cookie recipe without eggs this recipe is definitely gets an A plus.
  • 2 and 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup/2 sticks Softened Butter
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar, (I used light)
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 4 and 1/2 teaspoons Ener-G in place of 3 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons Water
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Nuts (Optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F/190C for 15 minutes. If using a non stick pan greasing is not necessary, otherwise use parchment paper to line the cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.
  3. In a food processor/blender whip together the egg replacer powder and water together, until it's thick and creamy. Add this mixture to the creamed butter and sugar, combine thoroughly.
  4. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  5. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the wet mixture until it begins to form a dough.
  6. When it is almost thoroughly combined stir in the chocolate chips and nuts, if using.
  7. I greased a tablespoon to scoop the dough and drop it easily onto the baking sheet.
  8. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Let stand for 2 minutes on the baking sheet itself. Then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely before storing.
My Notes:
  1. My first batch of cookies did not turn golden brown even after 11 minutes. I removed it anyway and noticed that the bottom was very brown. So from the second batch onwards I removed it from the oven around 9 minutes itself. Even though the cookies had a pale yellow color, they were baked enough and tasted very good. I guess using dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar would give the golden brown color.
  2. For vegan chocolate chip cookies use non-hydrogenated, non dairy butter and nondairy semisweet chocolate chips.

  1. Do you have a recipe for sugar cookies without eggs or with an egg replacement.

    Hi Deanna, I did see a vegan sugar cookie recipe in the Joy of Vegan Baking, but did not try it. I’m sure that it will be good. If I remember, I think she had used EnerG instead of eggs. I’ll see if I can get a copy of the book in the library and will try to get the recipe. Or else you can try it too.

  2. Hi Madhuram,

    First, I just want to say thank-you for putting all this together. I love to bake and always tried to bake eggless, but
    was very unsuccessful. Thanks to you, I have been able to bake here and there. I love chocolate chip cookies, but do not know how to bake eggless chocolate chip cookies. I tried this recipe, but I do not know what I did wrong. The cookies were sizzling in the oven with lots of butter. I know I did something wrong; I just can not figure it out. Please help me with any suggestions you may have! Thank you so much for all the wonderful recipes madhuram!

    You’re most welcome Kanan. I think somebody else also had mentioned the same thing earlier. What happened once it came out of the oven? This recipe uses a lot of butter, so sizzling is quite common. Just don’t flatten the dough (simply drop it), so that it does not spread too much. Also these cookies (and almost all other drop cookies) continue to cook even after removing from the oven. So leave them undisturbed on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes and then transfer it to a wire rack.

    Did you use EnerG or any other egg replacer (like Bob’s Red Mill)? I have also observed that blending Energ with (warm)water in a blender yields better result than simply whisking it with a fork. Hope this helps.

  3. Hi.Firstly I totally love all ur recepies.These are very creative n innovative.Being a veggie, i think all ur recepies are amazing!! However i would be enlightened if u could publish a vegan oatcookies/cake receipe without raisins.Also can u send ur veg receipies to me?I’ll be glad if u would, n I’m anxiously waiting 4 ur reply.Thank u n keep giving more of ur awsome reciepies.

    Sonia, thank you very much for your kind words of appreciation. I already have a vegan oatmeal cookies recipe, just omit the raisins in it or substitute nuts/chocolate chips instead. Also you can sign up to get the recipes in Email. Check out the right side top corner of any page and click Get Recipes by Email.

  4. We are a avid choc.chip cookie family so when our youngest was dx with an egg allergy I have been on the hunt for a good recipe. We all loved it!!! Thanks

    You’re welcome Rebecca.

  5. Thanks for the blog! My son was just diagnosed with an egg allergy so I’m always on the hunt for recipes. Just tried the cookies and they fell completely flat and spread out. Has anyone experienced this? So far, nothing I’ve made with Ener-G has turned out and it’s very frustrating!

    Andrea I think you are not whipping EnerG and water very well. It’s preferable to run it a couple of times in a blender/food processor. I have a magic bullet blender which has a small jar which is perfect for this whipping. I had some problem with EnerG only in my first trial. If I remember right I simply whisked it with a fork and I think that’s why it did not turn out well. From the 2nd recipe onwards I haven’t had any problem at all.

  6. Thank you!! I finally made these yesterday for my kids… my 19 month old is allergic to eggs and I had all but given up on making him homemade choc chip cookies. And you know what? They are EXACTLY like the ones I used to make! You can’t tell the difference? Hooray!! We’ve been using E-ner G since he was diagnosed and find it works well in some things, but not others. These were a huge hit and a keeper! Thank you!!!!

    You’re welcome Happy Baker. You are right about EnerG, it doesn’t work for all recipes. All the recipes I’ve tried from the Joy of Vegan Baking have come out well. But this one is the best.

  7. Hi Madhuram, i’ve just started learning how to bake cookies and i was browsing thru chocolate chip cookies recipe but not really into “Eggless Cooking”.

    So if i were to use 3 small egg rather then E-ner G in your recipe, can i still follow the same recipe and procedure totally and make such delish cookies like yours?

    Sure, also don’t add the water. You can check for lot of tried and tested recipes.
