  • First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, add olive oil, vanilla extract, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix until combined.
  • Then, add in all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. The dough will be a little crumbly and oily.
  • Use hands to roll dough into 1 ½ inch sized balls. Your hands will get slightly oily. Use your hands to squish dough into compact balls of dough.
  • Place balls of dough at least 2 inches apart on pan. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
  • Bake for 10 to 11 minutes or until cookies look barely set in the middle.
  • Finally, remove cookies from oven.
  • Allow cookies to cool on pan for 5 minutes before carefully transferring to a cooling rack.


  • Either extra virgin olive oil or light flavored olive oil can be used.  For a more robust flavor, use extra virgin.  For a more mild flavor, use light flavored.
  • Both gluten free 1 to 1 flour and all purpose flour work in this recipe.
  • The cookie dough will be slightly crumbly and oily.  It is important to use your hands to form the balls of dough instead of a cookie scoop.  Use hands to make compact dough balls.
  • Bake until cookies look just barely set in the middle.  Do not over bake!
  • Store cookies covered at room temperature for up to 4 days.
