These chocolate chip cookies without brown sugar is an easy homemade chocolate chip cookie that’s gooey and chewy on the inside. Whether you’re looking for a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, or just out of brown sugar these cookies are perfect! 


  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. Beat butter and granulated sugar until combined. About 2 minutes.
  4. Add egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Beat until fluffy. About 3 minutes.
  5. Add flour mixture and beat until just combined. 
  6. Stir in chocolate chips. 
  7. Drop scoops of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches part. Add additional chocolate chips. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until slightly golden brown around edges.


  • Measure flour correctly. Scoop the flour out using a spoon, add to measuring cup then level the flour out with a knife. This will ensure that the flour isn’t packed in the measuring cup. If the flour is packed, it can result in more flour than needed; which can lead to drier cookies.
  • Add more chocolate chips on top! Once the cookie dough is on the baking sheet, add more chocolate chips. This will give you those yummy pools of chocolate.
  • Use room temperature butter. This will help the butter beat smoothly. If you forgot to take out the butter you can: Cut the butter in cubes. Place in microwave, then microwave in 10 second intervals or until just soft. Be careful not to melt the butter!
  • Use any kind of chocolate. I like using semi sweet chocolate chips. But you can use any flavor of chocolate chips. Chocolate chunks will also work perfectly.
  • Do not over bake the cookies. Check the cookies after 10 minutes. They need to be just slightly golden brown around the edges.
