To Die For Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 12 cookies
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

6 tablespoons softened ghee (or butter)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup unbleached sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ tsp cinnamon
¾ cup dark chocolate chips (I like to use mini). *I added oatmeal to half the batter and they turned out awesome


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together butter or ghee, olive oil, brown sugar, and unbleached sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Mix the flour mixture into the sugar mixture until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips and oatmeal if you want to add it. If you have time cover the bowl and place in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.
Scoop out 1-inch balls of dough and place 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake 11 to 12 minutes until the edges are golden brown while the centers remain gooey.
