Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies without Butter
Are you one of those people who forgets to take the butter out of the refrigerator to soften it when you want to bake cookies? I cannot tell you how often I have a little bit of time in my schedule, decide to make cookies, and realize I can’t because the butter I have is hard as a rock.
The recipe never comes out the same if you melt the butter or try to soften it in the microwave. The cookies end up spreading all over the place.
Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies without butter
I have found the best recipe in the world for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies without butter. No, they don’t use margarine either. I don’t use margarine at all in my kitchen.
This recipe using olive oil and is absolutely amazingly delicious. No one will ever be able to tell and you won’t have to wait for the butter to soften either.
Substitution for butter in cookies
These really are the best chocolate chip pecan oatmeal cookies I’ve made. But, better than that, these are healthy oatmeal pecan cookies. And, for those that are avoiding butter, using olive oil instead is a great substitution.
If you prefer oatmeal raisin chocolate chip pecan cookies, feel free to add a few handfuls of raisins to the batter. This recipe is a great base for whatever add-ins you like. You could even leave out the chocolate chips if you prefer.
If you like baking cookies or you just need to make some yummy snacks for the kids, I recommend that you try my Honey Bunches of Oats Cookies and my Butterscotch Chip Skillet Pie recipes. Or, you may enjoy my Popcorn Chouquette recipe.
