Holiday Baking Egg Free:Egg Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who needs a holiday to eat chocolate chip cookies? Certainly not me. Tuesday is fine enough of an excuse for me to get to baking. However, I'm trying to compile a list of egg free, nut free recipes that we will be using over the holiday season. Hopefully this will be of use to some other weary eyed cookie craving mother perhaps thrown (as I was) by diagnosis of food allergies in the family. Or possibly someone who has given up on eggs (So many good reasons to do that, but that's another post) but is determined not to give up on baking.

After my last adventure in egg free baking I thought maybe (since you know I'm bad enough at conventional baking) it might be a good idea to look at this adventure more like a guided tour and look up some recipes. I found this recipe for egg free chocolate chip cookies and I followed it very closely.
I have to admit it was kind of scary because....well...look at the batter. At this point I was thinking, "These things will never hold together." However, I think by this point we have established that I am no knowledgeable authority on baking, so I continued. I packed the batter into a 2tbs measuring spoon and dropped them onto a baking sheet.

Again I followed the recipe and took them out of the oven before they looked done. They were a hit. Of course the texture is different than the average chocolate chip cookie, so don't expect them to taste like know...your grandma is a vegan. It was nice to have freshly baked treats in the house again.


  1. I love all the different ways to make cookies! Thanks!

  2. My evil clown ran away and I thought he may be over here.

  3. I suck at baking cookies I normally just eat cookie dough. But my work is having a rotating employees-bring-cookies-to-work day. So I needed new recipies and thought to go to your blog and its the first post!

    I'm too lazy to go to the store for chips so I wont be trying it today but hopefully soon.

    Also my vegan baking secret (which works for non cookie items and hopefully will work for cookies once i practice) is flax seed. Not sure if you can get it at TJs but its not that uncommon. If you grind up 1 tbsp and mix w/ 3tbsp of warm water it turns to a sticky egg replacer. Super cheap and really good for you w/ Omega 3s.

  4. So thrilled to come across your blog! I just found out my 19 month old has an egg allergy and the dr said no egg products. Thank you for the great recipes since this is so new to me!

  5. Grace, Hi! Sorry, I've been really bad lately about getting on here. The main computer was down for a bit, and that's the one I'm used to working on. Your evil clown may be around here somewhere!

    Sara, Thanks for the tip. I'm always looking for new whole food ways to replace eggs.

    Erin, Hi! So nice to meet you! I'm glad you found me. I'll be posting more egg free cookie recipes soon, I have been trying a lot lately. Food allergies can be so overwhelming and scary at first. I can totally relate to what you are going through!!! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the comment!
