Ingredients

You’ll see that these egg-free cookies––which are also gluten free and dairy free–––look simply mouthwatering.

Here are the ingredients you need to make them:

Rolled oats: These provide fiber, which helps keep you fuller for longer. If you’re a gluten-free eater, choose gluten-free oats.

Hemp hearts and flax seeds: These seeds offer healthy fat, protein, and fiber.

Crunchy peanut butter: The key to these eggless cookies? Well, peanut butter does a really good job of holding all the ingredients together.

Peanuts are a good source of both protein and fiber—a combination of ingredients that helps to keep you fuller for longer.

You also get healthy monounsaturated fats, which help with that filling factor, plus an array of vitamins minerals in each peanut. This includes vitamin E, folate, magnesium, and potassium.

Plus, research in JAMA Internal Medicine shows that eating peanuts and peanut butter may help you live longer. 

U.S. and Chinese researchers looked at more than 206,000 American and Chinese people. In the American group, subjects were mostly of African and European descent.

The people eating the most peanuts and peanut butter (18.45 grams, or about 0.7 ounces, or more daily) had up to a 21 percent decreased risk of dying, versus the people taking in the smallest amount (less than 0.14 grams daily).

Researchers also noticed that eating peanuts lowered risk of death related to cardiovascular disease. In the Asian group, peanut intake was linked with a lower risk of stroke.

Oat milk: I like to cook with oat milk, as it’s very creamy. If you’re a gluten-free eater, choose one that’s made with gluten-free oats.

Whether you’re simply out of eggs, are vegan, or you’re allergic to eggs, this is a great recipe that my family loves.

Spray a non-stick baking tray with cooking spray. Shape cookie dough into small balls, and place on cookie sheet.

Recipe FAQ

How do you make a flax egg?

There are many ways to make eggless cookies, including making a flax or chia egg.

If you’re adapting an existing egg-containing cookie recipe to be eggless, you can make a flax egg by combining 2 Tablespoons ground flax meal with 3 Tablespoons cold water. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.

How do you make a chia egg?

To make a chia egg, combine 1 Tablespoon chia seeds with 2 ½ Tablespoons water. Let the mixture sit for at least 5 minutes.

What kind of peanut butter should you buy?

Skip the jars labeled low-fat; they typically contain filler ingredients like corn syrup that help to stabilize the product, upping the sugar content. Instead, shop for a natural peanut butter, many of which now come no-stir.
