Yes, EVOO is great in all kinds of savory recipes, but it also works beau­ti­fully well with cook­ies too! Mildly intense extra vir­gin olive oil pro­vides a delight­ful way to incor­po­rate taste and healthy whole­some ingre­di­ents into your favorite sweet treats and baked goods. 

These ooey-gooey choco­late chip cook­ies are rich, deli­cious, and melt-in-your-mouth good. Olive oil is the secret ingre­di­ent to main­tain­ing mois­ture when bak­ing. No dried out cook­ies here! We subbed in high-qual­ity, mildly intense, EVOO for the but­ter in this recipe and the results are won­der­ful! The aroma of extra vir­gin olive oil gives this clas­sic cookie a sophis­ti­cated flair.

Converting your cookie, cake, muf­fin or pie recipes from using but­ter to olive oil is very easy. A sim­ple rule of thumb is for every full mea­sure of but­ter, you use only three-quar­ters of EVOO.


  • 1cupmild inten­sity extra vir­gin olive oil

  • 1eachegg

  • 1tea­spoonvanilla extract

  • 3/4cupgran­u­lated sugar

  • 3/4cupbrown sugar

  • 2cupsall-pur­pose flour

  • 1teap­soonsalt

  • 1/2tea­spoon bak­ing soda

  • 1cupchoco­late chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two large bak­ing sheet pans with parch­ment paper.
  • Place olive oil, egg, vanilla, gran­u­lated sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fit­ted with the whisk attach­ment. Whisk until smooth and com­bined. Replace the whisk attach­ment with the pad­dle attach­ment and add flour, salt and bak­ing soda to the bowl, mix on a lower speed until com­bined and dough forms.
  • Remove bowl from the mixer and stir in the choco­late chips. Using a small scoop or table­spoon mea­sure, por­tion cookie dough, roll into a ball, and place each, 2 inches apart, on the pre­pared bak­ing sheets.
  • Bake cook­ies for 10 – 15 min­utes or until slightly golden around the edges but still soft in the cen­ter. For more crisp cook­ies, bake until the cen­ter is firm. Remove from the oven and let cool to room tem­per­a­ture (ide­ally, ele­vated on a wire rack or cool­ing rack).
