Hold up. Wait a minute. Are you telling me you can make chocolate chip cookies with olive oil? Oh yes, you can! They are downright divine and now my little “secret” ingredient.

¾ cup Butter (12 Tablespoons), melted
¼ cup Olive Oil
1¾ cups Brown Sugar
¼ cup Sugar
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2½ cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
½ teaspoon Salt
12 ounces Dark Chocolate Chunks
Sea Salt Flakes


  1. In a small skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat until melted. Don't cook butter for too long or the liquids will begin to evaporate. Remove from heat and pour into mixing bowl.
  2. Add oil, brown sugar, and sugar to butter in a mixing bowl. Cream for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla. Cream for 1 minute longer.
  4. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir just until combined.
  5. Stir in dark chocolate chunks or chips.
  6. Wrap or cover dough. Chill for at least 30 minutes, several hours, or overnight.
  7. Preheat oven to 385 degrees.
  8. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges begins to turn a light golden brown. Watch carefully. Once there is about 1 minute left, open the oven, and sprinkle the cookies with sea salt flakes.
