Olive Oil Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies.  Give me the choice of cookies any day, and my #1 will be oatmeal.  Brown sugary, chewy, full of cinnamon and all that oatmeal texture.  Yep, without a doubt, I am an oatmeal cookie girl.

So remember when the fine people at Star Fine Foods sent me this amazing package of goodies? Well, I am bursting at the seems with all of this great olive oil, olives, vinegar, etc.  And while we have been enjoying some really great homemade salad dressings and pasta dishes, I was really just ready for a cookie.  So I thought to myself, “why not make an oatmeal cookie with olive oil?”  So I did it.  Annnd it’s amazing.  Even without butter, they are still nutty.  The texture is just how I love it too: soft and chewy in the center, and just enough of a bite on the outside!  I used a mini batch of cookies that I adapted from this cookie.  The batch took literally 20 minutes.  And when you are a 20-something with the patience of a 4-year-old, this is a good thing.

Silpat liners – these are also very good things.  I have simpy fallen in love with how easy these are to use.  Cookie (and anything that you bake on them) bake evenly, they slide right off of the liners and they wipe clean.  Simple, simple, simple.  Now you have more time to eat cookies.  This is always a good thing.

Oh – and one more good thing – Silpat is giving a Silpat Half Sheet to one of YOU! I don’t bake cookies without these amazing liners, so neither should you!  If you aren’t convinced yet, Silpat has a YouTube channel that is full of awesome information! See below for giveaway details!

Olive Oil Oatmeal Cookies | Small Recipe

Yield: 6 cookies

Total Time: 15 minutes

A recipe for soft and chewy oatmeal cookies made with all of the classic ingredients - oats, cinnamon and brown sugar, along with one not-so-classic ingredient - olive oil.

Ingredients:

6 Tbs. (1/4 cup + 2 Tbs.) all-purpose flour
6 Tbs. (1/4 cup + 2 Tbs.) old-fashioned oats
3 Tbs. brown sugar, packed
1 Tbs. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbs. beaten egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbs. Star Fine Foods Extra Light Olive Oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat liner.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda and mix until combined. Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine. Pour in the olive oil and mix until combined.

Scoop the dough by rounded tablespoon onto the Silpat liner. Bake in the preheated oven for 9-10 minutes until the cookies are just lightly browned on the edges. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Cassie's Notes:
For added texture and flavor, add in some cinnamon chips, butterscotch chips, raisins or walnuts before baking. (About 2 tablespoons of any add-in you'd like.)
