Need a recipe for Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies? You've come to the right place! These eggless cookies are just as good as traditional chocolate chip cookies and a lot healthier. This easy recipe for eggless cookies is also low carb, keto, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, and Trim Healthy Mama friendly.
I really began making eggless cookies as an accident. A friend mentioned to me that she used gelatin in place of eggs to make almond flour cookies crisp and I had to give it a try. After a few trials I came up the perfect almond flour cookie dough and since then I've used it in a dozen different recipes.
By switching the flavor of extract, adding some nuts, and adding chocolate you can change the taste. With different shapes, you can change the look. It is easy to make 3 or 4 different types of cookies with the same base dough. And no one will ever know.
This recipe is very similar to my Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies with a couple of tweaks to make these eggless cookies taste more like the classics. Feeling like a chewy chocolate chip bar instead? Make my Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars!
How to Make Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies
I make my cookies in my food processor. The food processor cuts the cold butter into the flours easily and mixes all the ingredients thoroughly.
First Step: Mix all the ingredients besides the chocolate chips in a food processor.
Second Step: Stir in the chocolate chips. Try not to eat all the dough before baking!
BUT, one of the best parts of making eggless chocolate chip cookies is that you can eat the cookie dough without worrying about consuming raw eggs.
Third Step: Scoop the cookies onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. This method is quick and painless.
Expert Tip: If you want to make another batch of my eggless cookies you don't even need to clean the food processor bowl in between.
How to Make Round Cookies
The easiest way is with a cookie scoop.
My three cookie scoops are one of the most used gadgets in my kitchen. I use the largest size to make meatballs, giant cookies and fill cupcakes, and the smaller sizes for cookies and to scoop ice cream.
My toddler loves having baby ice cream cones. My local grocery store sells mini cones that are perfectly sized for a toddler. I use the smallest scoop and give him a little ice cream as a treat when the bigger kids have dessert.
Notes and Tips for Perfect Eggless Cookies
- You need the gelatin. Since these don't have eggs the gelatin is the binder.
- I have only tested these with my sweetener and these exact ratios of almond flour and coconut flour. Using a different flour blend will result in a cakier cookie.
- Use chocolate chips you like. If you don't like the sugar-free chocolate chips go ahead and chop up a bar of sugar-free milk chocolate instead.
- These freeze very well!
Eggless Cookie Dough
I'm a bit of a rebel and use raw egg yolks in most of my ice cream recipes (and I've never gotten sick from eating homemade ice cream) but I know this is a concern to a lot of people. Eggless cookie dough is a delicious treat and I use it as a base for my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake and Frozen Cookie Dough Bites.
