20 Egg-Free Desserts Everyone Will Love

Written by Ana Reisdorf, MS, RD on April 22, 2024


Eggs are a staple in many recipes, particularly desserts, like cookies, cakes, and pies. They serve an important purpose in these dishes, acting as binders that hold the dessert together and lend moisture and flavor. They are also important for emulsification, or the blending of fat and water, to help create a smooth texture. 

However, some of us may not be able to eat eggs. They are among the top nine most common food allergies. Egg allergies are common in children, but luckily many tend to grow out of them. Some people also have an intolerance to eggs, where they experience bloating, stomach pain, or more severe digestive symptoms after eating eggs. 

If you’re following an egg-free diet due to allergies or food intolerances, finding eggless desserts can be a challenge, since they are so common in many recipes. We scoured the best of the internet for some delicious no-egg desserts to help you have your cake and eat it too.
