Eggless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are dedicated to my sister, Gaby. Ever since she discovered a sensitivity to eggs it has limited many of the baked goods that she can eat. Since I love baking, she asked if I could come up with some baking recipes without eggs.

I willingly and excitedly took on this task and that’s how the recipe for these Eggless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies came about. I have made these cookies quite a bit now, and I absolutely love them, as does my sister and my entire family.

These cookies check off so many boxes, they are egg-free, gluten-free, and I would even classify them as healthy, or at least healthy-ish. But the best part about them is that they are so, so good! They are a little soft and with the perfect amount of sweetness, as good if not better than regular chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. You would never even know they are made without eggs.

So whether you also have a sensitivity to eggs, are looking for a vegan cookie, or maybe you are just out of eggs, I highly recommend you give these cookies a try.

How to Make Eggless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Flax egg

Making a Flax Egg

Instead of an egg, this recipe uses a flax egg. A flax egg is made with a combination of water and flax meal which, when left to sit for a short time, becomes a thick consistency that will help the ingredients bind together.

If you want to learn more about flax eggs, then check out this post.

To begin, prepare your flax egg. Mix 1 tablespoon of flax meal with 3 tablespoons of room temperature water. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

In the meantime, start working on the rest of the ingredients.

Making the Cookie Dough

Preheat your oven to 350°F.

Oat flour

In a medium mixing bowl, combine:

  • 1 3/4 cup of oat flour
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

In a separate bowl, use a hand mixer or stand mixer to beat 1/4 cup of softened butter (dairy-free butter will work) with 3/4 cup of coconut sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the flax egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Slowly, add in the flour mixture and mix together until well combined. Fold in 3/4 cup of dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips. These ones are my favorite.

Prepare a baking sheet with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop or two spoons, arrange the dough at least one inch apart as they will spread.

Bake 9-11 minutes until edges are slightly golden.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 10-15 minutes then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Questions about Eggless Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

  • Can I use something other than flax meal?

Yes. You can also use chia seeds to make a chia egg instead. Follow the same directions for the flax egg.

  • Can I use eggs?

Yes. Replace the flax egg with one regular egg. I have noticed when using an egg in this recipe the cookies tend to spread a little more than when using flax egg.

  • Can I use something other than coconut sugar?

Yes, you can use brown sugar. The flavor will be pretty much the same whether you use brown sugar or coconut sugar. However, coconut sugar is a healthier alternative so I like to use it since I tend to eat quite a bit of these cookies.

I hope you enjoy!
