{Olive Oil} Chocolate Chip Cookies


Don’t let it weird you out that these are called olive oil chocolate chip cookies. Focus on the chocolate chip cookie part. There ya go. Better, huh?

You can’t taste the slightest bit of olive oil in the cookie…it is all just pure, glorified chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. 🙂

These are actually super speedy to whip up.

At 8pm, I sat up and said: ‘I want cookies.’ So I made them…and that was that! 🙂

Good story, huh? 😉 Just kidding, that was a horrible story.



Ignore my awful story and make these amazing cookies.

    1. Awesome! As for a substitute for wheat germ…from best substitute to least….grind some flaxseeds, almonds, or just use whole wheat flour. 🙂 Happy baking!

  1. These look amazing! I owuld never think to make chocolate chip cookies in a nontraditional way..because that’s such a traditional recipe. But, these photos are definitely eye-opening and inspiring. Thanks so much for the motivation!

  2. that is so like me! I often am dying to start baking late at night! when you want cookies, you want cookies! I’ll have to try these, I’ve been very interested in using olive oil in my baking.

  3. I love the combination of chocolate and olive oil…they go together so well.
    The cookies sound really, really good. Comforting, chunky deliciousness.

  4. I’ve been thinking about these cookies for a long time and after reading your post, I just had to make them. I loved them! I’ve started using olive oil in almost all my “healthy” whole grain recipes and people can’t ever detect the olive oil. And these cookies are extra nice because they have a normal cookie texture and not a cakey/healthy texture, if that makes sense. Thanks so much for posting this! It definitely gave me the push I needed. 🙂

  5. Hi there,

    thanks for posting the recipe from my blog and visiting my blog 🙂 much appreciated!!
    These cookies are awesome, aren’t they? I really don’t think these cookies taste like they are healthy, the better healthier ingredients you use the more you can eat which is my kind of thing 🙂
    Thanks again, love the picts

  6. Very excited to try these and learned NOT to use Irish steel cut oats. Makes them veryyy chewy, and not in a good way. 😀 Subbed ground flax seed for wheatgerm. Think I’ll try a light olive oil next time. But considering everything, they are good and my husband loved the batter.

  7. I had a client looking for a dairy free chocolate chip cookie…I found this recipe…yeah! The first time I made them they were so oily, (I mixed and mixed) when I put them on the cookie sheet I thought for sure they would be a mess when they came out of the oven. Low and behold they came together nicely. The second time I used only used 1 cup of LIGHT olive oil and dairy free chocolate chips and wow they were perfect. Thanks!

  8. These cookies ARE amazing! And they come out of the oven looking like the most perfect chocolate chip cookie in the world! I didn’t have quite enough olive oil, so subbed in a little coconut oil, yum! I also used white whole wheat flour since I didn’t have the ww pastry flour. I baked for 11 minutes and they are perfect! Thanks for this wonderful recipe 🙂
