Chocolate-Chip Olive Oil Cookies With Sea Salt
Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies {makes about 30}
Recipe adapted from Take a Megabite which was from Slice of Feist via Crepes of Wrath (<—-woah!)

Ingredients:
◾2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
◾1 1/2 t kosher salt
◾1 t baking soda
◾1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
◾1 t vanilla extract
◾3/4 cup granulated sugar
◾3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
Note: I used 3/4 + 3/4 cup of raw sugar because that's all I had at hand.They were still realllyyyyy good!
◾2 eggs
◾1-2 T milk, optional
◾1 heaping cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Sea salt to sprinkle on top if desired.
1.Preheat your oven to 375°F. Line a few baking sheets with parchment paper.I needed 3 of these.
2.Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat together the olive oil, vanilla, and sugars until it looks like wet sand. Add the eggs one at a time and beat until mixed in completely.i have a handheld mixer so I crack the eggs into a separate bowl and pour it into the bowl with the other hand. With a mixer, beat in the flour mixture gradually until just mixed. Add a tablespoon or two of milk if the batter is too dry. If the batter is too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until handle-able. Stir in the chocolate chips.Mine was just right.
3.Using a spoon scoop mounds onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the edges are just starting to turn golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.Wait for them to cool before peeling off<—-this is IMPORTANT!! Eat at least 4 since these are healthy, butter-less cookies.(<——best advice ever)
