1 cup butter or butter-flavored shortening 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup powdered sugar 1 1/2 cup flour 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup quick-cooking oats 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream together butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and oats; stir into creamed mixture. (Mixture may be slightly dry - do not add liquid.) Mix in chocolate chips; stir to combine.
Drop rounded tablespoons of dough, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool cookies on baking sheet; carefully remove and store in an airtight container.

kh REVIEW: I found these to be a total flop! There was nothing to substitute
for the eggs or the chemical reaction the eggs normally provide in
regular chocolate chip cookies so my cookies were a crumbly mess. I wonder how everyone else got theirs to work!

07harley Member since: March 29, 2008 REVIEW: I had no idea you could make cookies without eggs! This was great and the cookies were just like regular cookies! I thought they'd be dry or something but they weren't.

Guest Foodie REVIEW: I followed this recipe to the T except that I added a half a cup of powdered sugar and a half cup of regular sugar. The powdered sugar has corn starch in it, so if you dont have powdered sugar, you can use a few tablespoons of cornstarch and a half a cup of sugar. It came over very sweet for me. Loved it though. Next time I will stick with a half a cup of powdered sugar OR a half cup of sugar. No more. :)

turned out great REVIEW: I used tub margarine for the 1 cup of butter and 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown Turbinado sugar instead of powdered sugar. My dough was moist and I rolled my cookies into small 1 inch balls and baked for 12 min and let them sit a few min out of the oven and they are amazing!!! They are 1/2 inch high and 1 1/2 inches in diameter and are chewy and moist. Not shortbread like in any way so it must be the tub margarine. Best version of choc chip cookies ever!! And fun to sneak dough before making ;-)

kutos REVIEW: This recipe is easy and the cookies are quick to make. I tried this because I was out of eggs and had a pack of chocolate chips winking at me....
I used half and half brown sugar and white sugar, and I softened the butter, as other posters recommended. The dough was pretty crumbly, but I got the little balls formed ok. I found they needed at least 15 minutes in the oven. Good flavour, you can't tell there's eggs missing.

bakergirl REVIEW: Amazing! I had no eggs so I decided to try this recipe. I also did half and half on the powdered and brown sugars. Turned out better than cookies with egg!

agmalloy REVIEW: I had only enough eggs for my husband's breakfast then next morning and of course that is the day that our daughter wanted to bake cookies. I googled "no egg cookies and came across this recipe among others, this one had the best reviews (now I know why). It whipped up so fast and both our kids LOVED the cookie dough....more than usual which was great!
I did use margarine instead of butter and melted it just a little to make sure it was soft enough to blend by hand as I had a helper.
Thank-you so much for posting this recipe it was greatly enjoyed by kids and adults alike in our house.
