These Butterless Chocolate Chip Cookies are the BEST no butter cookies around. This quick and easy recipe will substitute olive oil instead of butter.
They are absolutely my favorite dessert, especially the regular chocolate chip cookies. It’s got to be soft, chewy, and have a lot of melted chocolate inside and outside of the cookie. Yep, that is my type of dessert.
I’ve always leaned towards the more simple desserts, and I’m OK with that. It’s National Olive Oil Month, and Pompeian launched a pledge this month to substitute your recipes using olive oil instead of butter.
When I think of classic recipes using butter, I always come back to cookies. They are loaded with butter and are definitely as classic as you can get. I was a bit nervous experimenting with the olive oil in place of the cookies but got over my nerves once the cookies went into the oven and came out looking delicious. Next up was the taste portion of the cookies. How would they compare to cookies with butter?
The color of the cookies came out a little lighter than most cookies I bake, but the taste was spot on. I wanted others to taste the cookies so I could get a REAL and HONEST opinion about butter cookies vs. olive oil cookies. Most of the people couldn’t even tell that there was a difference, and they were shoveling them in so fast I don’t think they cared.
If you could substitute one recipe that uses butter with olive oil, what would it be?
