NO EGG CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
If you have any type of egg allergy in your family then you must try these no egg chocolate chip cookies! They bake up so perfectly soft, delicious, and thick! No thin crispy cookies with these no egg cream cheese chocolate chip cookies.
My kids love chocolate chip cookies and although we have no egg allergies to worry about at my house, we still all prefer these no egg cookies over regular chocolate chip cookies.
CREAM CHEESE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Instead of the eggs this recipe uses cream cheese! It gives these cream cheese chocolate chip cookies a creamy and rich taste that is so delicious when paired with milk chocolate chips.
It also helps lighten up the cookies a bit too. Which I can appreciate it because there is nothing worse than baking cookies only to have them turn out really browned.
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES WITHOUT EGG
Melted Butter - The butter needs to be melted & cooled before adding it into the bowl. To do this, place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl or glass measurer and microwave for about 45 seconds. At this point you should half melted butter + half soft formed butter. Take a fork and mix it all up until everything is melted and smooth. This gives you melted butter that is not piping hot.
Cream Cheese - For best taste use the real, full-fat stuff. Make sure it's softened well before adding it in to avoid lumps in your cookie batter.
Granulated Sugar & Light Brown Sugar
All-Purpose Flour, Baking Soda, Salt
Milk Chocolate Chips - I prefer milk chocolate chips but use any kind you like.
MY TIPS & HELPFUL HINTS FOR THIS RECIPE
- Make sure you beat the butter, cream cheese, and sugars for at least 1-2 minutes. You want the mixture to be fluffy looking and lighter in color than when you started. This takes at least a minute of beating to achieve this.
- Use any kind of chocolate chips you prefer! Some like using a little bit of two kinds (semi-sweet + milk chocolate) while other prefer all milk chocolate.
- Make sure the cream cheese is very soft! If it's still cold or harder then it won't mix in well with the butter and sugars and will turn the batter lumpy. Place unwrapped 6 ounces of cream cheese on a microwave-safe plate and microwave for about 25-30 seconds to get it nice & soft.
- Roll the dough into balls before baking. This ensures that your cookies will turn out nice and pretty, and round & puffy.
- The dough is softer than usual cookie dough but that's ok. Just go with it.

No Egg Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 6 oz cream cheese softened
- 12 tablespoons butter melted & cooled
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups + 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1½ cups milk chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325°. Prepare a cookie sheet by lining with parchment paper, using a silpat liner, or spray with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl with a handheld mixer, or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the cream cheese, melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until lighter in color and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add in vanilla extract and mix together.
- Add the baking soda, salt, and flour and mix just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and mix.
- Roll dough into 2" balls (about the size of a golf ball) and place on a cookie sheet.
- Bake for 11-14 minutes.Cookies will be puffy, still pale in color, and the tops should have slight cracks in them. They will cook slightly more as they cool on the hot cookie sheet so don't overbake them.
- Let the cookies cool for 15-20 minutes on the baking sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
I made two batches and packaged them up with some jelly beans and bow for Easter take-home treats. My family loved them. Recently, I made a recipe for almond shortbread where they substituted cornstarch for some of the flour and the result was great so I was comfortable using it in this recipe.
I have in the oven now. I added a package of Instant Chocolate Pudding mix for a chocolate fix. Dough good.

Yum! I love adding pudding mixes to cookies. I hope it turns out good.
I am so happy to have found this recipe, just for the fact I didn't have any eggs (my daughter had the last two) but it was an amazing cookie. Thank you for posting it!!!!
We made this last week and they are amazing! I have four kids, all of them with severe allergy to egg and you have save me, because before this all my cookies were made with banana. They loooveeee these cookies and me too. They are amazing and creamy and everything a cookie should be. Thanks for this recipe.
On behalf of a wife with an egg allergy and a husband who loves to bake cookies but didn’t know a good egg free recipe, thank you! These are amazing!
Love these cookies ! My daughter is allergic to eggs so we tried it out and she loved them ❤️
These were amazing! My family was raving about them. I have a severe egg allergy so I'm always unable to enjoy sweets because they usually lack the taste I am looking for. These were so delicious! Thank you!
Just about to pop them in the oven now. I had some cream cheese leftover from a cheesecake that I needed to use & no eggs. I tossed in some raisin, coconut and walnuts in the batter. So far they look delicious & rather easy to make which I like.
Absolutely delicious!!! I made mine with miniature chocolate chips and with all brown sugar ( I was out of both eggs and white sugar, as it turned out), and baked them by filling each cup of a muffin tin. It was so hard to stop eating the delicious dough long enough to bake!
I’m allergic to both eggs and bananas so this was great. I made them and they are delicious! With cream cheese do you need to refrigerate the ones you have left?
Together As Family
I honestly don't refrigerate them but you can with no problems.
It's now 2020 and Corona virus has depleted all of the eggs from the stores near me. This recipe is wonderful! I'll continue making these even when I have eggs on hand.
Omg these are the best no egg cookies I ever had. My little one is allergic to eggs and I have been trying a lot of no egg cookie recipes now I don’t have to search any further this will be the recipe I can see my self making n baking forever now. Just made a batch followed the exact recipe and they just melt in my mouth. My 2 sons are taking their afternoon nap and I’m worried i might finish half of them before they wake up ? Thanks a ton dear for this recipe!

You're welcome! Thank YOU for leaving your review and comment. I appreciate it.
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! These were so tasty! I scaled down the recipe since I’ve a leftover of 4oz. cream cheese and made small adjustments: 70g sugars (1:1 white&brown), 1/8 tsp salt, 1 stick melted unsalted butter , 1 1/4 cup a.p. flour, 1/2 tsp cornstarch, 1 cup dark mini chocolate chips and following the rest of the ingredients. They were perfect at 12 minutes (163°C/325°F). This is a keeper!
The best cookies ever!
I have tried many eggless recipes with the egg-substitutions (applesauce, egg subs, etc) and this is the first recipe I have made completely without ANY egg to put on a Christmas cookie platter for a family member. These are amazing - even better the next day. Thank you for creating this recipe - our oldest daughter nabbed a bit of the raw dough and said it was the best cookie dough she’s had! Win-win!

I love this! Happy I could help in a small way and thanks for your comment and rating. I appreciate the feedback.
These were so good, I may never make traditional cookies again! Can I freeze them?? Not sure with cream cheese in them.
Together As Family
I think these cookies would freeze fine. Mine never last that long in my house so I have never actually tried freezing them... but I am sure they would freeze fine. Thanks for your comment.
My dough wAs too goey to roll into 2 in balls. Used spoon method~ in oven now.
What a Blessing this recipe was!we are going to Grandparents Dat at my 4 yr old Grandson’s school tomorrow….his friend is allergic to eggs and I have Celiac disease so I used gluten free flour and made gluten free, egg free cookies for the reception tomorrow. I made a few with no chocolate chips and rolled them in colored sugar and fixed a special container for my Grandson’s friend to take home. They were delicious!
I’ll be making them again as I have a Grandaughter who is 7 and my son, who is her Dad also with Celiac…..They will love them!
As a teacher (in Japan) with students who have egg allergies, THANK YOU! I use your recipe for all holidays, this time for Halloween! 🎃
That's why I love this recipe, it works so well for kids with allergies!
