No-Egg Cookie Dough With M&M's Recipe

Grab a Spoon and Dig Into This No-Egg Cookie Dough

Let's be real: the best part about baking cookies is eating the raw cookie dough. (Eating warm, fresh-from-the-oven cookies is a close second.) That said, there's a small, but real, risk to eating traditional egg-based cookie dough.

Instead, try this delicious recipe which skips the eggs — and risk — altogether. (A small, undetectable amount of applesauce is used instead.) We mixed in a ridiculous amount of Mini M&M's, but you do you. Small or chopped up candies, toasted nuts, or mini chocolate chips would all be great additions.

No-Egg Cookie Dough With M&M's


I used 2 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt; if you don't love salty-sweet desserts, reduce the measure to 2 teaspoons.

No-Egg Cookie Dough With M&M's Recipe


  1. 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  2. 2 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  3. 3/4 cup (5 1/4 ounces) granulated sugar
  4. 3/4 cup (6 ounces) dark brown sugar
  5. 1/4 cup applesauce
  6. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  7. 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  8. 2 cups (10 ounces) all-purpose flour
  9. 1 1/2 cups mini M&M's


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, salt, and sugars, until a frosting-like consistency is reached. Add applesauce, vanilla, and nutmeg, and mix until combined. Mix in flour until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Pack into small mason jars, if desired.
