Notes

Indulge in the sheer delight of Olive Oil Cookies, a delightful and simple snack that will elevate your taste buds throughout the week.
These cookies offer a tantalizing burst of flavours and a healthier alternative to traditional butter-based treats. Packed with the goodness of olive oil, they offer a unique and luxurious twist to your snacking experience.

Simple is best during the week
One of the greatest advantages of olive oil cookies is their simplicity.
You can effortlessly whip up a batch of these delectable treats with just a handful of ingredients, including olive oil, flour, sugar, and flavourings such as vanilla extract. Unlike butter, which requires softening and careful temperature control, olive oil can be easily measured and incorporated into the dough, resulting in a smooth and consistent texture.
Beyond their simplicity, olive oil cookies offer a range of benefits that make them an excellent snack choice. Olive oil, renowned for its heart-healthy properties, is a rich source of monounsaturated fats and antioxidants. These beneficial fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels, promote heart health, and improve overall well-being. By substituting butter with olive oil, you can enjoy the same mouthwatering cookies while embracing a more health-conscious approach to snacking.
Moreover, the unique flavour profile of olive oil adds a luxurious touch to the cookies. Its fruity and slightly peppery notes infuse the dough, providing a subtle and elegant taste that enhances the overall experience. Whether you prefer milder olive oil or a robust flavour, a wide variety allows you to customize the cookies according to your taste preferences.

How to eat these delicious cookies
Olive oil cookies' versatility is another reason they are an ideal snack throughout the week. You can experiment with various add-ins, such as raisins, nuts, chocolate chips, or dried fruits, to create different flavour combinations and textures. The possibilities are endless, from classic combinations like raisin and walnut to more adventurous pairings like orange zest and dark chocolate. This flexibility allows you to adapt the cookies to suit your cravings or dietary needs, ensuring each batch is a unique and delightful experience.
In addition to their deliciousness, olive oil cookies have an impressive shelf life, making them a convenient and practical snack option. The use of olive oil helps retain moisture in the cookies, resulting in a longer-lasting freshness. When stored in an airtight container, they can maintain their texture and flavour for up to a week, making them an excellent choice for busy individuals or those who like to plan their snacks.
Whether enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee, shared with loved ones or savoured as a moment of self-indulgence, olive oil cookies are a delightful snack throughout the week. Their simplicity, health benefits, luxurious flavour, and versatility make them a special treat that can satisfy your cravings while nourishing your body. So, embrace the goodness of olive oil and elevate your snacking experience with these exquisite cookies.
