Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the avocado oil, powdered sugar, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract.

Using a large box grater (think pizza cheese size) grate the butter. Add the butter into the mixing bowl with the sugar. Mix on low until combined, you’ll still see small bits of butter, that’s okay.

Add the flour and mini chocolate mix and mix on low until combined.

Step 3

Using your hands, form the dough into 24 balls and place on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them slightly so they are about 2-inches in diameter.

Step 4

Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges and bottom. Top with flaky sea salt immediately after coming out of the oven. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

FAQ's

How do you store these?

These are a shortbread cookie, so they are buttery and crisp. They are best stored just out on the counter in open air. However, you can also store them in the fridge (if you live in a humid climate). Or, you can also freeze them in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Can I use another oil besides olive oil?

Yes, feel free to use avocado oil, canola oil, or even sunflower oil. I haven’t tested these with coconut oil, but because coconut oil solidifies, I am not sure it would act the same way in these cookies. But you are welcome to try that as well, I would melt it first.

Can I use regular sized chocolate chips?

Yes, you can use regular sized chocolate chips in place of mini chocolate chips. Just at 142 grams (3/4 cup) organic semi sweet chocolate chips in place of the mini chocolate chips.
