I love baking eggless cookies! As someone who eats eggs, I really enjoy eggless cookies even more than cookies with eggs! Why?

While eggs are crucial in many recipes for certain properties, like their ability to whip up into meringue in Strawberry French Macarons, for example. They are truly not needed for all cookies, especially soft and chewy cookies. And I even prefer eggless cookies when I make soft and chewy cookies!

I talk about this more in my book, Effortless Eggless Baking. But the short of it is, eggs are made up of mostly egg whites. And egg whites are made up of water and water can dry out baked goods. So, when baking soft and chewy cookies, eggs can actually dry them out quicker than cookies without eggs. So, when you bake eggless cookies, your cookies will stay soft and chewy longer!

Tips for Eggless Sprinkle Cookies

  • Use soft butter! No matter if you are using vegan butter or regular butter, having it soft is key for these cookies.
  • While I use milk here, you can use any kind. Cow’s milk, coconut milk, almond milk — they all will work! Use your preference.
  • You can use chocolate sprinkles if you prefer as well.
  • Store in an airtight container to keep them soft and chewy for days.
  • Because these are eggless, there is no worry of under baking them. So, if you like a super soft cookie, feel free to under bake!
  • You can also sneak a bite of cookie dough whenever you making eggless cookies!
