I know you are probably thinking I have completely lost my mind. Hard boiled eggs is cookies??
YES! People, I know it sounds crazy, but everyone who tasted these thought they were the best cookies ever! No one would ever know their secret ingredient!
You seriously cannot taste any egg in these cookies. I promise. They are chewy and soft with crisp outer edges. They have a deep, rich flavor from the brown butter and brown sugar, and they are loaded with 2 kinds of chocolate chips! They have a touch of cinnamon too, which adds such a nice flavor without being overly cinnamony.
Please, do yourself a favor and take a couple of those extra Easter eggs you have laying around, and bake these cookies! Then come back and tell me I’m not crazy after all 🙂

Is it mere coincidence that this was posted on April Fool’s Day? Hmmmmm . . . . . .

I have been hearing about these cookies but have never made them. You make them look amazing…I need these asap!

Those are totally beautiful and I never would have thought that they have hard boiled eggs in them!

I’ve never heard of that before, but that sounds like a great way to use up our eggs! Plus they look delicious!
The Domestic Rebel says
Rarely do I ever have leftover hardboiled eggs lying around (I egg salad those ASAP!) but I will make it a point to save a few so I can try these cookies. They look so fudgy and delectable! Pinning!
Erin @ Texanerin Baking says
Haha. I love this post. I’m all for putting in weird stuff into treats that you can’t taste so I think it’s awesome. 😀
Becky | The Cookie Rookie says
WHAT?! These are SO cool! Can’t wait to give them a try!
I thought for sure these would only use the yolks, which I have seen before and wanted to try but never did because who has just egg yolks, cooked, sitting around? So I am super intrigued it uses the whites too. So do the HB eggs somehow still bind the cookies?
I’ve never thought of doing this but I think I’ll have to give it a try now! thanks for sharing
I am so impressed you made cookies with hard boiled eggs! You rock! No more egg salad for me, I’ll be making cookies! Love all the chips too.
Sharon @ What The Fork Food Blog says
Ok so I must admit, it sounds weird BUT sometimes the strangest combinations taste the best. Great way to use up all those Easter eggs too!

What is brown butter? Is it butter that has been browned in a skillet??
Stephanie Brubaker says
I’m so sorry, Debra, I am just seeing your comment now. Here is a recipe that explains how to brown butter http://backforseconds.com/brown-butter-toffee-blondies/ I hope it helps!
Brenda@Sugar-Free Mom says
First time I’ve ever seen or heard of a hard boiled egg in a cookie and a mighty fine cookie it is! Amazing!
Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes says
This is the coolest idea! I never would have thought to use up those hard boiled eggs in COOKIES!
Angela | Mind Over Batter says
Yup. I thought you were crazy. Now I see where you’re going with this. I love a chewy ccc that’s crispy around the edges. Mmm…
Martha @ A Family Feast says
OK – these do SOUND totally weird but they LOOK fantastic! I’ve GOT to try them!
Cate | Chez CateyLou says
What a perfect use for all those leftover hardboiled eggs! These cookies look so perfect! I’ve used hardboiled egg yolk in a cookie before (a sable), but never the whole egg – can’t wait to try this!
Des @ Life's Ambrosia says
I must admit I’m pretty intrigued by this recipe! I was expecting to see little bits of hard boiled egg in the cookies which I was thinking might be super weird but these look just like chewy chocolate chip cookies!
Linda @ Food Huntress says
I’m definitely going to make these for the hubby. Bet he will never guess what is in them. They do look delicious!
Sara @ Bitz & Giggles says
I have NEVER heard of baking with hard-boiled eggs, but I think you’ve convinced me! The cookies look great!
At first I thought your recipe was going to be chocolate chip cookies in the shape of hard boiled eggs!! I didn’t realize you were going to put the eggs in the cookies 🙂
Joanie @ ZagLeft says
This is seriously a great idea. I always have leftover eggs after Easter – I’m going to give these a go, they look wonderful!
Kacey @ The Cookie Writer says
Lady, you have me super intrigued here! I am going to try this! Not telling my husband though, he has a hatred for hard-boiled eggs.
