chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate chip cookies recipe – sharing a step by step recipe of making a really easy one bowl healthy eggless chocolate chip cookies.

These cookies are not the usual crisp and chewy cookies. They have a cake-like soft texture and a bit of chewiness. they are slightly crisp from out and soft from the center. The chocolate chip cookies are made from whole wheat flour or atta. the flour which we use for making roti.

I have used chakki ground atta here. you can also make them from all purpose flour. For health reasons, I use whole wheat flour in cookies and muffins. I do make whole wheat cookies and muffins at times since they are good and healthy. These also make for a nice sweet breakfast or evening snack for us with some warm milk or hot coffee. They can also be served in the tiffin box as a sweet side snack for kids.

This chocolate chip cookie recipe is a quick one and there is no waiting period like keeping the cookie dough in the fridge. Right from mixing everything to preparing the dough it takes about 20 minutes, excluding the baking time.

These eggless cookies can be served plain or used as toppings on ice creams like vanilla ice cream or chocolate ice cream or choco chip ice cream or pistachio ice cream or on custard or puddings.

How to make chocolate chip cookies

Baking chocolate chip cookies

7. Make small or medium sized balls of the dough and flatten them a bit. These chocolate chip cookies don’t flatten too much while baking. So if you want a flat cookie, then flatten them with your hands. Spread some oil on your hands while shaping the cookies. Place the chocolate chip cookies on a greased baking tray.

8. Bake chocolate chip cookies in a preheated oven at 200 degrees celsius for 15 to 25 minutes or till the cookies are golden. Oven temperatures vary, so do be attentive to the baking cookies in the oven. If you make flat and thin cookies, then they will take less time to bake.

  2. This recipe is superb – my cookies got burnt and hard the first time – but now i have a hang of it. Have a special request to make – I want recipe for wholewheat eggless oats and raisin cookies.. Kindly post if possible.

  3. Your recipes are awesome. I ‘ve tried your regular atta cookies also. They came out very good, just crunchy on the outside and soft inside. Kids loved them. Just want to clarify one issue. When I set my otg on baking mode only the bottom element comes on. You have mentioned that both should be on. How should I do that?5 stars

    • thanks visalakshi. glad to know. in baking mode, the bottom element is on. in toast mode, both the elements are on. so for baking, you can use the toast mode. i also use it at times for some recipes like cookies and cakes.

  4. Hi!

    It’s an awesome recipe. I would like to clarify if it’s okay to use canola oil or butter.

    • Welcome Shilpa. Don’t use canola oil. I would suggest to use butter instead of canola oil. I have not read positive things about canola oil in internet.

  5. Thanks a ton for the easiest , tastiest and most importantly healthier version of cookies ?

  6. Hi,
    I tried the recipe today but the cookies came out very hard i do not know what went wrong,
    the sweetness was very low i think i just added 2/12/ table spoons of sugar.
    Can please tell me in grams for the sugar, coco,etc.
    However i love all your recipes and i have tried many it was par excellence.
    Please let me know about the cookies becos I want to perfect it.

    • thanks manjunath. either the cookies have been baked too much or the dough was not mixed very well. i will try to update the recipe with grams equivalents.

  7. Hi
    Love all your recipes..Was planning to make these wonderful chocolate chip cookies.Could you please tell me how to make them crispy like we get them at cookie shops.

    • bhumika, for crispiness the recipe will change a lot. since i always test and add recipes, i will try to add the crisp and chewy version of choco chips cookies soon.

  8. Hello,
    I always love your receipes. They are so easy and convenient to make.
    I was planning on making the Chocolate cookies and couldn’t find the receipe for one. So following this receipe – could tell me how much cocoa powder do i need to add instead of chocolate chip cookies?5 stars

    • thanks neha. i have not yet posted chocolate cookies recipe. you can add 1 to 2 tbsp cocoa powder. you will need to add some more milk to bind the dough.

  9. heya! i tried making this in the oven and they turned out to be very cakey not crunchy! and also they were looking like small choco chip baatis ? . will you tell me which step went wrong ?

    • shaila, the recipe is for cakey and soft cookies. these are not crunchy cookies. i have already mentioned this in the post. the recipe ingredients are such that they will give a soft texture in the cookies. no step of yours has gone wrong.

    • looks like they got baked too much. too much baking will make them hard. the temperatures in oven vary, so baking can take less or more time. sugar depends on individual taste preferences. you can also sprinkle some powdered sugar from above, if the cookies had come out well.

    • instead of curd, add vinegar or lemon juice. i suggest to overall add 1/2 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice. instead of milk, use almond or cashew milk or any nut based milk.

  10. Great & easy recipe. But the dough I made became sticky. I tried adding extra flour, oil. But it didn’t help. What might be the problem? And solution?

  11. Hi, recently tried out alot of ur recipes n they turn out really well.. Thnx a ton… I wanted to knw if we can make these cookies with a microwave with a grill and combi type..I don’t hv convection mode..4 stars

  12. I followed your recipe, baked in my microwave in convection mode for 20 mins. The cookies were crisp initially. But the next day, the cookies became very soft. Any idea why?

  13. I made these today.. They came out very well.. More like muffins with a crust than cookies i should say.. I have been searching for something like this to give to my toddler who can’t really chew but likes biscuits.. Thank you so much..

  14. Hi D.Amit

  16. thanks dear for providing such a useful site for us
    whatever i try from this it always turns out fabulously delicious.
    i just wanted ask one think how to make these cookies crunchier from inside too as we find in market ones5 stars

  17. Hi.
    I love your recipes..and these cookies look super delicious.
    Can you please tell me if I could substitute chocolate chips with normal chocolate cut into small pieces as I don’t have chocolate chips at home

  18. In a microwave convection oven is it good enough if the oven goes upto 200 degrees? Just got a new one and realised that it was upto 200 degrees. Also, is there any timing difference between a regular OTG and a convection microwave? Can convection microwaves also bake for a long time without getting overheated?

    • even the oven i have has 200 degrees celsius as the max temperature. in a OTG the baking is slower as compared to in the convection mode of the microwave oven. so either you reduce the temper by 12 to 20 degrees less or reduce the time by 15 to 20 minutes. i have only baked in the convection mode maximum for about 40 minutes. not more than that. so not sure about the overheating part.

  19. Hi…cookies r yummy….I have a small doubt. ..u have used aluminum dish…can I bake aluminum in microwave convection oven..I have these 3 aluminium vessels which came with cooker. can I use these? Or I should test it? How?

    • swechha, i am not sure about the aluminium vessels which came with cooker, if they can be used in the oven. the aluminum pans i have is basically meant for baking only. thus they withstand the high heat during baking. in the convection mode, you can use aluminium pans, but not in the microwave or combination mode. if in the convection mode, you see sparks coming from the pan (called as arcing), then don’t use aluminium pan. if this thing happens, then it means there is a fault in the oven.

  20. You r just amazing Dassana . I tried this recipe of eggless cookies n it came out very well. U r just perfect for cooking a healthy n tasty food. Keep cooking n sharing healthy recipes with us. All the best?

  21. Dear Dassana, I have tried quite a lot of baking recepies from your blog. They all turn out to be perfect. I love the fact that you use simple ingredients that are mostly available in the Indian kitchen. You have simplified baking for me! Thank you so much! Lots of best wishes and may God bless you:)

  22. Hey.. I made the recipe.. the cookies taste great.. however they are not crispy. They are soft, like a hardened cake.
    where did i go wrong?
    I added 7 tbsp milk and then added 1 extra tbsp flour and used greek yogurt
    Please help 🙂

    • the cookies are soft and have a cake like texture. but are not hard. i have mentioned in the post too. they are not that much crisp like the ready made choco chip cookies.

  23. Hi dassana,
    Liking your recipes. Simple and easy to make! A great help. Also your tips are very useful.4 stars

  24. Hi….

    Thanks for taking efforts in posting such lovely recipes. U hv made our lives n tasks more easy. Am a new follower of ur blog n must say ….all ur recipes r too good. The end result is just perfect at the first shot..5 stars

  25. Hi dassana.. I woul like to thank you for your efforts to publish ths site.. It just fabulous.. so simple and healthy recipes.. I tried your pav bhaji recipe and it turned out just perfect.. Thanks alot.. I just wanted to ask for this recipe that can we bake cookies and cakes in microwave?5 stars

  26. Hi Dassana,
    i m a big fan of your blog. Your recipes are very simple and easy to make. Thanks a ton for your efforts! I have a question regarding these cookies and chocolate cake. Can i add eggs in both these recipes? Will that help in making coikies more crunchier and cake more spongy? If yes, then how many eggs to be added and at what step?
    Thanks in advance

    • adding eggs in the chocolate cake and cookies will change the whole recipe as i have used egg substitutes in place of eggs. so i am unable to help you in these recipes as the entire recipe changes.

  27. Hi..,
