These chocolate chip cookies without brown sugar are so soft and chewy, and taste so yummy! 



  • 1 cup (220 grams) softened butter
  • 11/2 cups (300 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 large (110 grams) eggs 
  • 21/4 cups (280 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3 grams) salt 
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and line your baking sheet with either parchment paper or a nonstick silicone baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, cream your softened butter and granulated sugar together.
  3. Next, you will add in the eggs and vanilla and whisk together until incorporated.
  4. Add in about half of the flour, and then scatter the baking soda and salt on top. (don’t drop all in one spot or you risk having salt or baking soda pockets in your dough.) Use your mixer or spatula and mix the ingredients until just combined. Add in the remaining flour and continue mixing until just combined. Be sure to avoid overmixing your dough!
  5. Pour in about 3/4 of the chocolate chips and use your spatula to thoroughly incorporate the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop out the cookie dough, about 1-1/2 tablespoons in size. Place dough balls on your prepared baking sheet, be sure to allow room for the cookies to spread. My cookies spread to about 3 inches in diameter so make sure you leave enough room so they don’t run into each other.
  7. Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes. 11 minutes 30 seconds was my sweet spot, but your’s may be different.
  8. Immediately transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and allow your pan to cool down before adding more cookie dough.


Be sure not to overmix your dough or you will have tough cookies.
