Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

What are YOU doing with your left over hard boiled eggs?

A) Your kids are using them as ammunition in their latest pirate battle.
B) Chopping them up and putting them in your chocolate chip cookies.
C) What hard boiled eggs? You still haven’t found the ones you hid back in 2005.

Over here it’s always a little of A)…
…but today it’s B)
A while ago my friend Brittany told me I needed to try this out. Instead of placing raw eggs in cookie you can actually chop up hard boiled eggs really fine and use them in your dough. For some reason the idea of it initially revolted me. But seriously what’s the big deal? So you cook the eggs before you put them in the cookies. The result? A super moist and soft cookie. Europeans have been using this method for years.
They may even be in contention for my number one favorite cookie.
If you peek close you can see little pieces of egg whites.
Don’t worry – they all disappear when you bake them.

Note – you do need a food processor for this recipe.

Speak Your Mind



  1. Wow that’s a fantastic idea! I would’ve never thought this could be done.

  2. oh, WOW, I am definitely intrigued! I want to make these just to see what the flavor is like… I LOVE a hard boiled egg!

  3. So is the theory that you can use hard-boiled eggs in ANY cookie recipe?

  4. I’ve made these before and they were great! It sounds weird, but they really make a wonderful cookie.

  5. After spending yesterday in the hospital because of too much raw cookie dough, I can definitely say I WILL be making these!!! Thank you! What perfect timing for this post. I thought I’d have to swear off of cookie dough forever. Hope this cookie dough tastes as yummy as the raw stuff.

  6. Very, very interesting! Can’t wait to try this out.

  7. This is a neat idea! Why NOT use hard boiled eggs?? I’ve got to try this!

  8. Wow! I had no idea you could bake cookies with hard-boiled eggs. Great idea!

  9. Such an interesting idea – I’ll be trying this soon! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. I hate hard boiled eggs but am always up for something this creative and useful! I may just have to try this recipe this week and let you know what I think!

  11. wow thats so innovative! ive never heard of this technique before but now i’m dying to bake a batch of cookies and see how they turn out

  12. Why does that seem so weird?? I need to try it!

  13. What!? This is so neat, I’ve never heard of using boiled eggs in baking. The cookies look so thick and soft! Great idea. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I have never heard of that but I might just give it a try!


  15. Isn’t the idea that the raw eggs helps to bind together the ingredients? It seems weird that a boiled egg would still do this.

  16. When I saw the title I was like, “Gross! Eggs in cookies?!” Then I realized I was retarded because of course there are eggs in cookies. I’m going to have to give this a try for sure. LOVE your recipes!

  17. So how does the math come out? If you use one raw egg, how would you measure the cooked ones? Would it be one raw for one cooked?


  18. was that me? ๐Ÿ™‚ miss you! when you be this way?

  19. What an awesome idea! I love it- so creative to use the hard boiled eggs. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for posting.

  20. sounds kinda disgusting to me too !! but will try if you are telling me its good ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Made this today and they are awesome! I will remember this after ever easter and I’m considering putting in left over easter candy instead of chocolate chips!

  22. I am thinking about combining 2 of your recipe ideas and making Bacon and Egg chocolate chip cookies….sounds yummy!!
    Thanks for the awesome ideas!! Nina

  23. I have never seen this before, but those cookies look so deliciously beautiful, I just have to try it.

  24. I have to admit, it sounds a bit revolting to me too. I might have to give it a shot though, just to see for myself. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. So weird so intriguing- I may just give this a try!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. I am not sure I could get over the title. I am not a fan of hard boiled eggs so the thought of them in a yummy chocolate chip cookie, I am not sure I could go there ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. @Gwenevere,
    I’m not sure if you can just substitute it in any recipe. This recipe has a lot of butter to keep them soft.

    Everyone else…would I lead you astray! Seriously, these are good!!!! I was scared too, just try them.

  28. holy smokes!! This is the craziest idea, but so awesome!! Love it!
    Stumbling ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. i made a half batch this evening knowing that if they were as good as you said, i’d be in trouble. i am patting myself on the back for thinking ahead–they were awesome!

  30. This does sound strange, but I’m intrigued to try it. I would think the hard boiled egg bits would remain and you would still be able to taste it in the cookie. How interesting!

  31. Its kind of weird recipe yet I find this one interesting… I’d love to try it too.. thanks for sharing this idea.

  32. I find this recipe exquisite. I never thought hard boiled egg could be made into cookies.
