These Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies are crisp, chewy, and naturally dairy-free. They take less than an hour to make and require no stand mixer.


  • 180 g (1 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 150 g (5 oz) 70% dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • Flaky sea salt, for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the olive oil, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and whisk until fully incorporated.
  5. With a silicone spatula, fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. The dough will be quite sticky.
  6. Fold in the chopped chocolate. Be careful not to overmix.
  7. Use a 3 tbsp cookie scoop to portion the cookies and place them 2 inches (5 cm) apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are set and the centers look slightly underdone and soft.
  8. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling.


As with all our baking recipes, we recommend that you use a digital scale to measure in grams. That way there’s less room for error and you get more accurate results.

If you find that your cookies are harder than they were when freshly baked, try heating them in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them back up.
