Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

Say…What?! Yes, you read that correctly Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies! I’m sure you are thinking the same thing I was when I first saw this post: “Eeww?!” or maybe “Don’t the cookies need fresh eggs to stick together?” I’m not a scientist, but I was very skeptical about using hard boiled eggs in place of fresh eggs. I was so skeptical and intrigued that I just had to try them out myself, it also helped that I had about two dozen hard boiled eggs from Easter sitting in my fridge. :)

While I have been debating about the timeliness of sharing this recipe now, I decided that summer is prime egg salad season. So, while you are boiling some eggs for your salads, cook a couple of extra to try in these cookies. Actually, you should try this steaming method of cooking your eggs. I haven’t used it yet, but next time I need/want some hard boiled eggs I am definitely going to try it out!

Love my two-year-old hand model? She loves to bake with her Momma! If you don’t have a cookie scoop, you should get one! I LOVE mine, perfectly uniform cookies every time!

No worries…she didn’t touch all the cookies…just that one. :) A great thing about using the hard boiled eggs…I wasn’t too stressed out about her eating a little raw cookie dough. Although, I have to admit that it wasn’t my favorite tasting dough. :)

You can see the little egg pieces before they are cooked, but once they are cooked, they completely disappear. Unless you have brightly dyed eggs…I could see a couple of little colored spots. I don’t think anyone else noticed, I just meticulously inspected every cookie!

We all enjoyed them! I don’t think anyone I shared them with would have guessed the “secret ingredient.” I personally still prefer my regular favorite chewy chocolate chip cookies (you will just have to wait in anticipation for another post). I probably won’t boil eggs just to make these cookies, but if I already have some hard boiled eggs, I will make them again.

  1. Had several of these without the prior knowledge of the hard-boiled eggs…fantastic!!! Tasted just like regular CC cookies!

  2. You’re BRAVE! I saw that post too and thought there was no way it could work. (I also don’t like hard boiled eggs outside of my cookies, so I’m a bit biased.) But if I ever find myself with hard boiled eggs and not fresh, I may just have to give them a try!

  3. so you still havent posted you favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe… im so curious!!
