See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.
- Butter: I use room temperature, slightly softened salted butter. Butter helps make these egg free cookies tender and it adds flavor.
- Brown sugar: Because brown sugar contains some molasses, when combined with butter the cookies become amazingly soft and chewy.
- Flour: Use all-purpose (plain) flour.
- Chocolate chips: Use your favorite type. I love using semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips best in this eggless cookie recipe. Feel free to use chopped chocolate or chocolate chunks instead of chips, if preferred.
How To Make Eggless Cookies
- Mix the butter and sugars together in a medium sized mixing bowl until creamy.
- Add in the flour and baking soda to the bowl and mix.
- Add in the vanilla, water, and oil and mix until combined.
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Portion dough with a medium-sized cookie scoop (or use a large tablespoon) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat about 2-inches apart.
- Bake in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Take the cookies out when they are just starting to turn brown around the edges. Let them rest on a cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
Follow these easy tips for making the best eggless chocolate chip cookies:
- Use softened butter, not cold butter in this eggless cookie recipe. Softened butter should still be cool to the touch but when you press your finger into the butter, your finger will leave an indentation.
- Measure the flour by using the spoon and level method. To measure flour correctly, use a spoon to scoop flour into a measuring cup and slightly overfill. Then, use the back of a knife or other straight edged utensil to level the flour across the cup. Do not scoop the flour. When you scoop, the flour gets packed too tightly and you will end up with more flour than the recipe calls for.
- Do not overbake these eggless chocolate chip cookies. Take the cookies out of the oven just as they are beginning to brown along the edges, about 10-12 minutes.
