These no-egg chocolate chip cookies were created because I ran out of eggs and didn’t realize it until I was knee-deep in cookie batter. So I decided to improvise and with a few changes to my original chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe, I created an even better no egg chewy chocolate chip cookie.
When I first realized that I had run out of eggs I was upset because usually I make this cookie recipe exactly as the recipe says and I even considered running out mid-baking. But I had dinner on the stove and didn’t want to turn everything off to run out to the store. I remembered my last cookie experiment that turned out to be the best oatmeal cookies using instant oatmeal packets.
So I began looking in the cabinets to see what kind of egg replacement I could use for a cookie recipe. Then I remembered being the room mom for a class with allergy restrictions. I had to make cupcakes without using any dairy, or so I thought. I found out later, after spending hours reading about baking without dairy, that it was just milk I needed to leave out. But I did learn a few helpful things about cooking dairy free and baking without eggs.
This recipe is perfect for those who are interested in baking chocolate chip cookies without eggs. Everything happens for a reason because it turns out that this recipe is even better than it was when I was making it using eggs.
I wish I had these no-egg chocolate chip cookies when I was a kid!
For some reason that nobody has ever figured out, as a kid, I struggled to eat eggs. I couldn’t understand why because I absolutely loved them. But for some reason, my stomach just couldn’t handle it because every time I ate them I would not be able to hold them down. I tried preparing them in different ways and including them in different recipes but nothing helped. So eventually I just stopped eating them at all.
I don’t think I ever actually visited a doctor with this ailment so I have no idea why it was happening. I remember it bothering me from when I was really little all the way through my teenage years. I only remember this timeframe because a friend of mine dared me to eat deviled eggs on Thanksgiving when I was 15 and I couldn’t hold them down. She immediately apologized for egging me on so to speak and believed that my issue was real. I never understood why but nobody seemed to believe I had this problem and since I didn’t have a diagnosis I often found myself sick from eating eggs.
But for some reason when I was pregnant with my daughter I decided to try eating eggs again. To my delight, I was able to tolerate them and they actually didn’t upset my stomach at all. So now I use them all the time although now that I have had these eggless chocolate chip cookies, I will never add eggs to this recipe again.
This eggless recipe produces a soft and gooey chocolate chip cookie. These delicious treats remind me of the texture of the soft batch cookies bought at the store but they pack a pleasantly unique flavor.
If you want the perfect no egg chocolate chip cookie recipe, this one is it!
