How to make egg-free chocolate chip cookies

It's simple to make these egg-free chocolate chip cookies by following a few simple steps:

  1. Start by preheating your oven and preparing your baking sheets. Then, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. In a separate large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the yogurt and blend again. Then, with the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture until just incorporated, and fold in the chocolate chunks.
  3. Scoop the dough (about two tablespoons at a time) and place them on the baking sheets. Gently flatten, then sprinkle a little sea salt over each cookie.
  4. Bake the cookies for 10 to 12 minutes, until the edges are lightly golden brown and the centers puff up. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool slightly before transferring them to wire racks.

FAQS

Can I make them gluten-free?

We've only tested this recipe with regular all-purpose flour so we can't guarantee results, but you could try it with your favorite gluten-free flour blend.

How long do these egg-free chocolate chip cookies keep?

They will last up to a week when stored in an air-tight container at room temperature.

Can I freeze them?

Definitely! Bake them first and freeze them for up to 3 months. Or for fresh baked cookies, freeze the dough in cookie-sized balls on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Once the cookie dough is frozen, put it into a freezer bag. When the craving strikes, put a few cookies on a baking sheet while your oven heats then bake them for 12 minutes.
