Making these egg free dairy free chocolate chip cookies is easy--you won't have to buy expensive mixes anymore. These are allergy-friendly cookies that everyone can enjoy.

Where can you find dairy-free chocolate chips?

Most brands of semi-sweet morsels and chocolate chips contain dairy, so be sure to check the packaging. I like to use Enjoy Life brand which are free from most of the top allergens.  You can get them here.

Using shortening makes the cookies soft and chewy, while avoiding dairy (butter). Usually the eggs in a cookie batter make them rise.

You can substitute eggs in most baked goods by combining ground flax seed with water. It's an easy way to cut eggs from your baked goods without having them flop.

Even if you're not eating dairy- and egg-free, you'll love these cookies.
