Eggless Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.


This post is a looong time coming. I have been having in my drafts for at least 2 years now but never had the opportunity to actually click a picture – Either most of the cookies are gone, or I don’t have the right props, or the sun plays havoc by hiding behind the clouds. Thsi cookie recipe has been a result of many days of experimenting and of course inspired by many  on the internet.  What are the ingredients of a good chocolate chip cookie – there`s the base flour, the choco chips itself, the sweetner being sugar, vanilla essence, baking soda, as this one is made eggless, and the eggs – in this case I`ve used buttermilk to replace the eggs. A healthier vegan approach would be to use applesauce instead of the eggs, and of course replace the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. I am working on an alternate version with applesauce, and avocados! But that post is for another day. This recipe uses Brown Sugar, for an intense taste, but works just as well with white sugar. Enjoy!




1/2 Cup Butter at room temperature.

1/3 Cup Room temperature buttermilk.

1 Cup Soft Brown  Sugar.

1 Tsp Vanilla Essence.

1 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour.

1/2 Tsp Baking Soda.

1/4 Tsp Sea Salt.

1 Cup Chocolate Chips.

A handful of raisins.


  • In a mixing bowl, add the room temperature butter and sugar and cream it together for a couple minutes.
  • Add the room temperature buttermilk and vanilla essence and mix it in well with a hand mixer, or a whisk.
  • Sift the all purpose flour and add baking soda and salt. Add this to the mixing bowl and slowly fold it in.
  • Finally add chocolate chips and raisins if needed and fold.
  • The dough has to be made in to a rough ball.
  • Cover with a cling wrap and refrigerate for about an hour and remove.
  • Preheat the oven to about 350F / 180C .


  • Make small lemon sized balls, flatten them lightly in the palm of your hand, and place them in a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for about 12-15 minutes until the bottom of the cookie is browned a little.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Chewy on the inside yet slightly crisp on the outside Eggless Choco Chip Cookies are ready!
  • If you want the cookies to be completely crunchy leave them in for about 14-16 minutes.
  • Every oven performance differs, so make it once and keep an eye on them completely after the tenth minute!
