Do you love crispy cookies?  Then you'll adore these thin and crispy eggless peanut butter cookies.  I'd love to try these drizzled or dipped in chocolate, but they're amazing just as they are.

5. Classic, Crumbly (Eggless!) Peanut Butter Cookies

Nothing beats a classic peanut butter cookie!  That tender, crumbly texture, that rich peanut butter flavor, the classic criss-cross shape made with a fork... a childhood favorite!  I have an incredible peanut butter cookie recipe, but if I ever need an eggless version, this recipe from Green Bowl 2 Soul is the one I'm going to use!

Chocolate Eggless Cookies

6. Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Let's start off our chocolate collection with some classic eggless chocolate cookies: chocolate shortbread.  All shortbreads are very basic, egg free cookies--but they're full of flavor!  You can dress the cookies up by dipping them in chocolate and adding sprinkles, like the cookies pictured here from The Monday Box.  These would be a hit on any Christmas cookie tray, but change up the colors, and they're perfect for any occasion.

7. Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies With Rye Flour

The rye flour in these egg free chocolate chip cookies gives them a depth of flavor and nuttiness that you'll love.  It's a great vegan option if you have a chocolate chip cookie craving!

These eggless double chocolate cookies are made with both cocoa powder and chocolate chips.  I imagine these would be amazing with peanut butter chips mixed in, too!

9. Eggless Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Texan Erin says this is the best eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I believe her!  Just look how perfectly golden brown it is!  You don't even need egg replacer to make this recipe, making it very easy to make.  It uses light brown sugar and regular granulated sugar, just like a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Greek yogurt is the secret ingredient that replaces the egg in these choco chip cookies.

10. Eggless Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ooh, but maybe these are the best eggless chocolate chip cookies, because these ones have pumpkin, too!  I'll definitely have to taste test these thoroughly to make an informed decision.  Get the vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe here.

The texture of these Oreo cheesecake cookies is absolutely magical! Crisp just at the edges, and soft and chewy inside.  And who can resist Oreos?

Florentines are kind of a cross between a cookie and a candy--crunchy, caramelized, and absolutely incredible.  

Fruit Flavored Eggless Cookies

13. Kolachy Cookies

Kolachy cookies filled with jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar on a wire cooling rack.

Kolachy cookies are made with a cream cheese pastry dough, much like rugelach, but they're baked with a jam filling.  I absolutely love how the baked jam gets chewy, almost like a soft candy or fruit leather.  No eggs in this classic, delicious recipe!

This is a vegan version of my famous, tried-and-true gingerbread house recipe, and it's put together with vegan royal icing, so it's safe for people with egg allergies.  I like everyone to be able to enjoy my gingerbread decorating parties!  It also makes delicious gingerbread men.

22.  Chewy Eggless Ginger Molasses Cookie

Eggless, Chewy, Ginger Molassas cookies on a wire cooling rack.  The cookies have a crinkled surface, and are baked with coarse sanding sugar coating the tops.

These chewy molasses cookies are absolutely amazing--flavored with molasses, dark brown sugar, fresh ginger, cardamom, and more.  Intense.  Adult.  And incredibly delicious.

23. Ladokouloura Greek Olive Oil Cookies

I love the spices used in Greek cookies in general, and I love the nutty crunch added by the sesame seeds in this recipe for Ladokouloura cookies.  They're naturally vegan, so great for eggless baking.

24. Russian Tea Cakes

Russian Tea Cakes (also called Mexican Wedding Cakes, or Snowball Cookies) are one of my must-make cookies every Christmas season.  They're so simple, but SO GOOD!  And they happen to be an eggless cookie recipe, with no modifications made from the traditional recipe.

25. Vegan Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

27. Traditional Scottish Shortbread Recipe

Did you know that traditional Scottish shortbread is completely egg-free?  It's made with just butter, fine sugar, and flour.  That's it.  But those simple ingredients combine to make the most amazing, buttery, tender, perfectly sweet and delicious shortbread cookies!

28. Melting Moments

Melting Moments whipped shortbread cookies, an eggless cookie recipe, on a plate in front of a cup of tea.

Melting Moments sandwich cookies are made with a two small, whipped shortbread cookies sandwiched together with a classic buttercream icing.  They are so simple, but so good, and they really do melt in your mouth, they're so tender.  This is another classic recipe that just happens to have no eggs in it.  No need for any egg replacements with this classic cookie!

29. Vegan White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Vegan white chocolate peppermint cookies, an eggless cookie recipe, cooling on a wire rack.

I'm not the biggest fan of white chocolate on its own--it's very sweet--but when you pair white chocolate chips with another flavor with a little more intensity, I absolutely love it!  Crushed peppermints are the perfect addition to the white chocolate chunks in this chewy, eggless cookie.

Rebecca also has an amazing vegan white chocolate chip pretzel cookie recipe.  If you combined that one with this peppermint and white chocolate egg-free cookie recipe, you'd end up with a cookie version of my favorite seasonal treat from Trader Joe's--flat pretzels dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint.  I am definitely going to have to try a mashup of these two recipes!


30. Eggless Snickerdoodle Cookies

Eggless snickerdoodle cookies on a white cloth napkin on a wooden surface.

This eggless snickerdoodle cookie recipe uses both white sugar and brown sugar, but the distinctive flavor definitely comes from the cinnamon in the recipe and the cinnamon sugar coating.  Snickerdoodles are always a hit!

31. Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

Coconut Oatmeal cookies, an eggless cookie recipe, cooling on a wire rack.

I love how jam packed with oatmeal and coconut this recipe is!  There is some all purpose flour in the recipe, but not a whole lot, and the ratios make this cookie hearty, amazingly flavorful, with the best chewy centers.  I love that this is a cherished family recipe, and that the author still has the recipe card she copied from her neighbor's original recipe when she was a kid.  You can't beat a tried and true recipe like that!  I'll bet the eggless cookie dough tastes amazing, too.  I'm a sucker for oatmeal cookie dough.

32. Coca Cola Cake Mix Cookies

Coca Cola Cake Mix Cookies, an eggless cookie recipe.

You'd never guess that these delicious cookies are made with a box of chocolate cake mix and coke!  (There are a couple other ingredients, too, but this is about as easy as it gets!). They seem soft when first baked, but when cool, they turn into the ost amazing chewy cookies.

33. Eggless Soft Sugar Cookies

Eggless soft sugar cookies on a white plate on a blue background.

These eggless sugar cookies are soft cookies, not firm ones like you'd decorate.  No, these are the type my grandma would make.  Drop cookies, shaped with a small ice cream scoop, and rolled in sugar before baking.  Soft.  Pillowy.  Perfect. But these ones are no egg sugar cookies, unlike my grandma's recipe.  Sometimes vanilla extract is all the flavoring you need to make an amazing cookie.

(But I do have an amazing roll-out sugar cookie recipe!  You can use aquafaba in place of the egg and the recipe works brilliantly.)
