Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just last week when I made malted chocolate chip cookies I was saying I was trying to find interesting and different variations on chocolate chip cookies.

Instead of using butter the recipe uses olive oil. I wasn’t sure that the cookies would keep their shape. Not only did they stay perfectly round they were awesomely soft.

The olive oil, the salt and the chocolate chips are great accompaniments for each other.

Besides the slightly different texture than with butter I wouldn’t say that the olive oil gave the cookies a strong flavor. It probably depends on the brand and type. I didn’t use anything too strong.

  1. So is there a very olive oily taste to the cookie?

    • only slightly, but I used whatever we had bought from Costco. If you use a good quality extra virgin the taste will come through more!
