While we are in an egg shortage, prices have risen due to short supply of eggs. If you're on Instagram, then I'm sure you've seen the hilarious egg memes with egg dealers and egg sugar daddies. I love all of them, so funny! But, with the recent increase in egg prices, you may be struggling to want to use your precious eggs to make cookies.
But, don't worry, you don't need eggs to make soft and chewy cookies. In fact, cookies made without eggs can and usually are softer and chewier. Why? Because, eggs are made up of mostly egg white. One large egg weighs 50 grams, and within that, only about 17 grams is egg yolk and the rest is egg white. Why does that matter? Egg whites are made up mostly of water, and water dries out cookies! Did I just blow your mind? If so, make sure to check out my new book, Effortless Eggless Baking and learn more about eggless baking!
But, in the meantime while you wait for delivery of my book, I'm sharing a dozen eggless cookie recipes that you can make during this crucial egg saving time. And, I bet you'll like them so much that you'll want to bake these eggless cookie recipes even after eggs are back in supply again.
There is a reason my Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies are among the top 5 posts on my site, at all times! They are that good! This was the cookie that created the inspiration for my new book, Effortless Eggless Baking! These are soft, chewy, and trust me – no one will even know there are no eggs in these cookies! What are you waiting for? Go make them now.
Spritz cookies are simple butter cookies piped out of a piping bag with a fancy tip. You can also use a cookie spritz if you have one. My Eggless Spritz Cookies are just as buttery and sweet as their egg filled friends, but you don't need to break the bank! Try them now.
My Coffee Creamer Cookies use Organic Valley French Vanilla Creamer in place of eggs! It gives them this insanely sweet but malt-like flavor that pairs so well with the milk chocolate. These soft and chewy cookies are addictively delicious. I bet you can't eat just one!
If you have never had a Florentine, I'd like to introduce you to an insanely thin, crispy, caramely cookie that you will be obsessed with the moment you try them! These cookies are naturally eggless, but, trust me, eggs would just fuck them up. They are perfect just the way they are, and I fill these with a chocolate peanut butter filling for a caramel, chocolate, and peanut butter cookie that everyone will love! If you ever visited my bake shop, then you know what I'm talking about. Try these Chocolate Peanut Butter Florentines, and if you like them, I have a whole chapter dedicated to Florentines in my book, Cookies for Eveeryone.
I made these Sprinkle Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies over the holiday break, and they are so simple and so good! These are a classic soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie loaded with rainbow sprinkles, I mean what's not to love? Plus, I bet they measure up against any egg filled version.
I feel that these Eggless Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies are one of the most underrated recipes on my site. If you like a big soft and chewy cookie, this is it! They are twice the size of my usual soft and chewy cookies. Plus, there's dark chocolate and sea salt – what more do you need?
What happens when you need cookies but you have no eggs and no soft butter? You still get cookies when you use my recipe for Magic Chocolate Chip Cookies! No soft butter needed and no eggs needed. That's why I named these magic, because, c'mon how can it be true! It is, make them.
If you love honey (like I do) then these Eggless Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Honey Cookies will be your new favorite cookies! I am obsessed with these, to say the least. Whenever I make them, I hoard them all to myself, I don't share a single one. Go ahead and see what they're all about!
Some shortbread cookies call for eggs, but not these Slice & Bake Vanilla Shortbreads! I love having this log in the fridge as you can slice off a few cookies, bake them off, and you have fresh cookies every day for a week!
There's nothing better than lemon and chocolate, and if you haven't tried this unlikely combo then I highly suggest you do! Everyone pairs chocolate and orange, but trust me, chocolate and lemon is so much better! Try these Chocolate Lemon Poppy Seed Sandwich Cookies for a twist on the standard.
Two of my favorite things – blueberries and chocolate all rolled into one cookie. These Eggless Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft, chewy, and they are both sweet and chocolately. You can swap out the dried blueberries for cranberries or raisins if you want!
My Coconut Vanilla Bean Mini Cookies are bite sized popable cookies that are lightly sweetened with coconut and vanilla for a snacking cookie that you will love. And obviously, no eggs needed!
