This quarantine… it has had ya girl really busy in the kitchen, let me tell ya.

I haven’t made this many new recipes since the days of testing food for both my blog and book. 2018 was out of control over here with recipes and I am having flashbacks to those moments.

I have been making new recipes with the intention of using up ingredients that I have on hand. The other day I used up some dates that I had in the pantry for far too long. I also tested an enchilada pasta (coming soon) that used up extra pasta, lentils and enchilada sauce I had. And today, I am making these Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies. Not because I personally have extra olive oil, but because you guys seem to!

Usually I use coconut oil or butter in my cookies. The butter is so key in making those Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies (gluten-free) extra tasty. But not all of us have butter on hand or can eat butter. Most kitchens do indeed have some olive oil so that is why we are making these olive oil chocolate chip cookies today!

Let’s run through the ingredients we need to bake these healthier Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies.

  • Pasture-raised egg – I haven’t tested a sub here. I do think flax egg would work, but I can’t say from experience. If you do make these with flax egg – let us know!
  • Extra virgin olive oil – This is the main star of the cookies. If you are looking for a cookie sans olive oil, check out these Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies (paleo + vegan)
  • Maple syrup – You can also use honey here
  • Coconut sugar – The mix of a liquid and grainy sugar are key for the texture. If you don’t have coconut sugar, sub 1/2 brown 1/2 cane sugar
  • Gluten-free oat flour – You can also use spelt flour here. I haven’t tested anything else
  • Chocolate chips – the more the better!

    1. hi susan – i don’t recommend that. anytime i have a sub for a flour it’ll be listed above or feel free to reference comments as sometimes reader’s share their success with subs.

  1. I love how simple and clean this recipe is. They just came out of the oven and I can’t wait to share these with my household! I even forgot to add the baking powder, but they still came out good! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  2. I just made these cookies this morning! The flavor is wonderful!! My cookies seemed to flatten and spread into each other (into one giant cookie) on the pan. They also crumble and break apart when I pick them up. Any idea what I did wrong? This has happened with other “healthier” cookie recipes I’ve tried; so I wonder if it’s me? 😜

    1. so sorry to hear! i am not sure. it is hard for me to say unless i am there with you sadly!! these stay together really well. if all ingredients and ratios are exactly as listed above, they will work 🙂
