Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies... No Eggs Required!

Yesterday I found myself hankering for a nice, soft chocolate chip cookie, but thanks to a recent batch of deviled eggs I'd made we were all out of eggs.  So instead, I substituted whole milk!  The cookies came out perfectly- fluffy and chewy, my favorite combination.

Recipe below!

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup  butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chunks

  1.  Preheat your oven to 375°.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium sized mixing bowl and stir well.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and milk, and beat using an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  4. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, and mix on low speed until well blended.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chunks by hand until they are distributed relatively evenly throughout your cookie dough.
  6. Spoon your cookie dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet in 2-tablespoon portions, spacing each spoonful of cookie dough roughly 2 inches apart from the others to allow for expansion during baking.
  7. Bake cookies one sheet at a time on the center rack of your oven for 10 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown around the edges.
  8. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to a plate.
  9.  Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!

One of the best things about this cookie recipe is that if you're a cookie dough nibbler you can have a bite of dough without having to worry about pesky things like getting horrifically ill from food poisoning since there are no raw eggs in this recipe!

  1. A little on the shortbread/salty side, but very satisfying!

    1. Thanks Tyrah, glad you liked them! ^_^

  2. i would definitely cut the salt down to a half tsp. not that chocolate and salt are a bad combo if you like it but it is more than one would expect.

    1. Hi Jacqueline! The recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon- do you mean cut it down to 1/4, or did you accidentally use a full teaspoon? That would definitely be super salty haha. Make sure also that if you are adding salt, that you are using unsalted butter; otherwise, omit the added salt.

      I'm so glad you liked them otherwise! Another option for making eggless cookies is to use ground flax seed if you haven't tried that before. You mix the flax seed with water(the proportions for this are usually listed on the package) and let it set up for a few minutes, then add it to your recipe as you would for a regular egg.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! <3

  3. they were very true to the photo though, and they came out really soft. i will make them again.
