Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm not vegan, but I am lazy. We didn't have any eggs so I resorted to google and found out that 1 egg equals 1 tsp of corn starch mixed with 1/4 cup water. SCORE! So... eggless chocolate chip cookies! I also know that chocolate chip cookies are very tasty if you add in a little bit of creamy dairy - sour cream or plain yogurt, neither of which I had in the house because I hate sour cream and plain yogart is not so pleasant either. I do know that plain goat cheese has the same effect so... there ya go! I ALWAYS have goat cheese in the house.

I am going to make a claim that this is the best tasting chocolate chip cookie dough I have ever made. Ever.

Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ sticks butter (salted), at room temperature
  • 2 tsp corn starch mixed with 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice (nutmeg and cinnamon)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 oz of plain goat cheese (Trader Joes makes single serving medallions - I used two of those)
  • 2½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350degrees F
  2. Mix the sugars, butter, corn starch mixture, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and goat cheese together so it's nice and creamy.
  3. Mix in the dry ingredients
  4. Taste to ensure you don't need to add any more salt or sugar to balance the sweetness.
  5. Scoop on to parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake for 12-15 minutes. (Revision - I made larger scoops of dough - about 1.5 inches in diameter)
  6. Let them sit and cool a bit before serving.


  1. the plan is to make these today! Sophie is going to help :)

  2. Great! let me know how they come out! One point to note - the pumpkin pie spice, don't put too much in. Unlike Vanilla, you CAN have too much spice. :-)

  3. so i just took them out of the oven. they spread alot and browned alot too. they still taste good, crispy. don't look like yours tho. i think part of the problem was the butter being too cold? even tho i nuked it a bit. it didnt cream. the batter sure was tasty and risk free without the eggs!

    i'll throw a pic up on FB.

  4. hmmm that could be the issue - you do add a lot of flour also so the dough seems dry. I also forgot to mention in the recipe that I made fairly large cookie dough balls which could change the cooking time. these guys don't get brown on top, you take them out right before that happens. Jojo - i'm so glad you made them!
