thick and fluffy grain free olive oil chocolate chip cookies (paleo).
the most deliciously fluffy, thick, and flavorful bakery style chocolate chip cookies. these cookies were made in partnership with Bertolli olive oil. olive oil adds a rich, smooth flavor to baked goods. it might sound strange to some, but olive oil + chocolate are really delicious together. plus, it’s a healthy fat packed with omega-3’s.
high quality, healthy fats are so important in a healthy diet. i pay close attention to the fats i consume- even in baked goods/desserts! olive oil is a long standing favorite of mine (yes i am very italian and olive oil basically runs through my veins- but it’s also loaded with health benefits :).
i can’t believe the way these cookies turned out- the texture and taste is out of this world good. they taste like a thick and chewy bakery style cookie- but made with real and wholesome ingredients. free of grains, refined sugars, and made with healthy fats. homemade is always best!
i can’t wait for you guys to try these! enjoy xx
