This eggless chocolate chip cookie dough tastes just like Toll House chocolate chip cookie dough except it’s specifically made without eggs. But it boasts exactly the same flavor and mouthfeel as the real deal. Safe for children and anyone else a little leery of raw eggs.
Why you should NOT bake this raw chocolate chip cookie dough
This chocolate chip cookie dough recipe is engineered to be consumed raw. So please, please, please don’t even consider baking it. That’s not how it’s designed. It turns blob-like and disappointingly bland when subjected to heat. Don’t even go there. The simple and obvious solution is to savor it by the spoonful in all its magnificence.

Recipe Testers' Reviews
This eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe blew my detox, but it was worth it! It's quick to pull together when you need that fast sugar fix and don't want to hassle with salmonella fears. I subbed gluten-free flour without anyone noticing and put some frozen mini-dough balls in our chocolate ice cream. If you're going to blow a detox, you might as well go all in!
This quick, 5-minute, eggless chocolate chip cookie dough recipe is exactly what it purports to be. The taste and consistency are very close to real cookie dough, albeit a little drier. The recipe produces enough for 3 small bowls worth of dough, but no one could eat that much, so there's definitely enough cookie dough for later.
