This cookie cake is not only extremely delicious but also pretty nutritious and super easy to make! It's so good, it's hard to believe there are no eggs or oils involved. If you swap out the yogurt for soy yogurt, it becomes completely vegan.

Approximate Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 12


  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt (use soy for vegan cookie cake)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (I prefer chunky for texture)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 8 oz chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, combine yogurt, peanut butter and brown sugar. Mix until well combined.
  3. Add the baking soda and flour. Mix until combined. Batter will be thick.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Pat the mixture into a pie dish.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

The other night I had a boxed spice cake mix but no oil or eggs. My cupboards were pretty bare. The box called for 1/3 cup oil and 3 eggs. I had some mayonnaise and used 1 cup of it, 1/2 tsp of baking powder and about a Tbsp of sugar. I baked it for the same length of time recommended on the box. The cake turned out amazingly well and I'd definitely do this again in a pinch.

Substituting mayo for the oil in a cake works because the main ingredient in mayo IS oil (plus egg, spices and lemon juice &/or vinegar).As long as the flavoring in the cake over-rides the spices in the mayo you should be ok. A little extra flour plus some baking powder could substitute for eggs in a pinch. Good for you for being resourceful!

Hi, I am a vegetarian! I don't want to use eggs in baking and other cooking because the chickens are treated horribly. I would like recipes for cakes, cookies, other desserts, scones, breads, and main courses that can be made successfully without eggs. (Of course, no meat or broth from animals either.) I do use cheese. Thanks! :)

I bake without eggs all the time as my son is allergic to them. For most recipes you can simply substitute 1 tablespoon water and 1 tablespoon white vinegar combined with 1 teaspoon baking powder for each egg. I've found it to work in cakes, cupcakes, breads, etc.

This recipe is simple and easy clean up.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 tsp white vinegar-weird huh
  • 1 tsp baking soda/powder
  • 1 cup cold milk. I usually use 1/2 milk-1/2 water


Preheat oven. Mix every thing together, I use a wire whisk. Use a 8x8 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F about 45 minutes. You can use different flavors, sometimes I use lemon, etc. The recipe is very forgiving. I usually double it.
