There's just something about the holidays that has us craving cookies. Sugar, Peanut Butter, Snickerdoodle... you name it, we want it. It also helps that National Cookie Day conveniently falls on December 4th each year. Well, now that you have cookies on the brain, did you know you can make cookies with olive oil? Like almost any type of cookie? That's right! You can substitute olive oil for butter or any type of cooking oil for a richer, more moist, healthier cookie!
Here's our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe:
We bake several different kinds of cookies here at the Olive Mill - all with good ol' extra virgin olive oil. When you use extra virgin olive oil while baking, you are not only creating a more decadent treat, but also infusing it with all the great health benefits this incredible oil has to offer!
