Ingredients Needed To Make Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough \\ Ingredients for Cookies from Scratch

Prepare to make easy cookies with few ingredients. Most of these ingredients are pantry staples that you probably already have.

  • Almond flour: For this chocolate chip cookies without eggs recipe, almond flour is essential. The almond flour absorbs all the ingredients to make the best cookies. The rich, buttery flavor can’t be replicated with a substitute.

  • Baking powder: This ingredient makes for a light, fluffy cookie.
  • Butter: If you want the cookies to be vegan, use vegan butter. If you don’t mind the dairy, use regular butter. Butter softens the cookies and binds the ingredients. It also ensures that the cookies aren’t dry and crumbly.
  • Maple syrup: An alternative sweetener to sugar, maple syrup adds to the flavor and texture of the cookie.
  • Brown sugar: If you want to make these cookies refined sugar-free, you can use coconut sugar instead of brown sugar.
  • Vanilla extract: This enhances the flavor of the cookies so you definitely don’t want to skip it.
  • Chocolate chips: I prefer semi-sweet chocolate chip cookies but make sure they are vegan. I suggest the Hu brand, a dairy-free, vegan, and paleo-friendly organic cacao.

How To Make The Absolute Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Without Eggs

  1. Mix ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hr. (Chill the dough overnight if possible.)
  3. Scoop 2 tbsp and roll into cookie dough balls. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes.
  5. Remove the cookies from the oven. Press on each cookie lightly with the back of a spatula to flatten a bit. Sprinkle with salt, and cool for 2-3 minutes before eating.

Want To Make Eggless Double Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Just add 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder or raw cacao powder when making the cookie dough.

Storing Leftovers

After the cookies have cooled down, seal them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. However, the cookie dough and baked cookies can last up to 3 months when frozen.

Tips To Make The Best Cookies Without Eggs

  • This recipe makes about 12 regular size cookies but you can make the cookies any size you want. I’ve played around with the recipe and made 5 gigantic cookies (roughly the size of an entire hand).
  • Do not over mix the cookie dough or you will end up with dense, tough cookies.
  • In order to prevent the cookies from sticking to the baking sheet, use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Because the cookies are egg-free, they won’t spread like regular cookie dough. Once the cookies are done baking, remove them from the oven. Then, using the back of a spatula, press lightly on the cookies to flatten them.
  • The dough needs to cool in the fridge for at least an hour. However, chilling the dough overnight is ideal because it helps the flavors marry. Additionally, it ensures that the cookies do not spread too much while baking in the oven. The final result is perfect cookies!

Common Questions

What can I use instead of eggs to make cookies?

Unlike other egg-free recipes that use cheese, banana, or applesauce to bind the ingredients, this recipe uses simple ingredients. Therefore, there’s no need for eggs or egg replacements to make the best cookies, especially when you use almond flour.

Can you substitute regular flour for almond flour in cookies?

Regular flour and almond flour are not interchangeable. Almond flour is lighter and contains more fat than regular flour so it is best used in specific recipes… like this one!

Why do my almond flour cookies fall apart?

Cookies made with almond flour can be delicate when they are freshly baked. It’s important to let the cookies sit for a few minutes after baking so they can cool down and solidify.

Are cookies better with eggs?

Eggs are typically used to bind the ingredients when making cookies, but they are not always necessary. If you have the perfect ratio of dry ingredients to wet ingredients, you can make the perfect cookies without eggs and they will still be chewy and delicious when baked!
