Why You'll Love This Recipe

Eggless: I love baking eggless cookies, even as someone who eats eggs. In my opinion, eggs are not needed in many cookies so you can save them for cakes and other desserts where they are more necessary.

Soft & Chewy: Making cookies without eggs can actually make them softer and chewier than cookies with eggs! I know this may sound crazy, but it's totally true. Eggs are made up of mostly egg whites, and egg whites are mostly water. Water dries out baked goods! So, making eggless cookies can make your cookies softer, chewier, and last longer.

Citrus + Chocolate: These Eggless Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies are a delightful combination of citrus and chocolate. I add orange zest into the cookie for a light and zesty cookie that's loaded with chocolate chips.
