Chocolate Chip Cookies Without Eggs!
I know it may sound weird, but this chocolate chip cookie recipe without eggs is seriously THE BEST I've ever made!! Like where have these cookies been my entire life?! I am a soft cookie person. Get out of here crispy, stale cookies! ✌️
Instead of adding eggs, you add WATER. Am I sounding even crazier? Haha. This recipe can easily become vegan if you swap the butter for vegan stick butter. You're welcome!
How To Make This Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe:
Before you get starting, soften your butter in the microwave for a few seconds or allow it to rest on the counter. Beat the softened butter and sugars together for several minutes until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides a few times and keep beating until the butter and sugar mixture has lightened in color.
Next, add in the room temperature water and vanilla extract. Beat on low-medium at first and then increase the speed to medium-high. When you add the water, the mixture will look curdled or separated. After a few more minutes of beating, the butter and sugars will come back together to form a light and creamy mixture again.
Now it's time to add the dry ingredients. Spoon and level the flour to get a more accurate measurement and add to the mixing bowl. Next add the baking soda, baking powder and salt. Use the measuring spoon to gently stir the rising agents into the flour before turning on your mixer.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together on medium speed until just combined. Your cookie dough should look sticky and start to form a large dough ball around the beater.
Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips. Use a cookie scoop or a large spoon to scoop the dough and roll into about 2'" balls. Place cookie dough balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Bake for about 12 minutes for a slightly under-baked cookie and bake for about 15 minutes for a more baked cookie. Baking times will vary from oven to oven, so keep an eye on your cookies and take them out when they look good to you!
Remove the eggless chocolate chip cookies from the oven when they are lightly golden brown. These cookies without eggs will look slightly puffy with under-baked middles when first removed from the oven, however they will flatten out and continue to bake as they rest. Allow cookies to cool before eating.
