These super fudgy salted dark chocolate blueberry olive oil cookies are packed full of sea salt, dark chocolate and dried blueberries.

When I was writing out my editorial calendar I debated on when to post these cookies. Because they contained blueberries were they too summery and therefor should not be shared until next year? Could I get away with blueberries in September? I feel like everything is pumpkin all up in my face right now.

Listen, I’m not trying to sound bratty or anything but can we chill with the pumpkin? I plan on posting plenty of the stuff but not until October. At this rate by the time October roles around people will be sick of pumpkin and everyone will be pushing Christmas cookies.

I swear if I see Christmas cookies in October I’m going to lose it.

These cookies are packed with super dark chocolate, sweet dried blueberries and topped with a sprinkling of sea salt. They are perfect for dipping into milk (or coffee) and since they include blueberries I like to think of them as being an appropriate breakfast food. Right?

Ok, maybe not perfect for breakfast but still delicious.

Dark Chocolate Blueberry Olive Oil Cookies

These super fudgy salted dark chocolate blueberry olive oil cookies are packed full of sea salt, dark chocolate and dried blueberries.

Yield: about 15 cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes per batch

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoon hot coffee
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cups dark chocolate morsels
  • 1 cup dried blueberries
  • Sea salt

Slightly adapted from Une Gamine Dans La Cuisine

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner, set aside.

In a small bowl mix together baking soda and hot coffee, set aside.

In the bowl of your electric mixer add sugar and olive oil. Mix on medium high speed until fully combined.

Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing for about 1 minute between eggs.

To your mixing bowl add flour, cocoa powder, kosher salt and vanilla bean paste. Mix until combined and looks like brownie batter.

Add in baking soda/coffee mixture and beat for another minute.

Stir in chocolate chips and dried blueberries. Let cookie dough sit in your refrigerator for 1 hour.

When you're ready to make your cookies roll them into 2 inch balls, place on prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly. I use the bottom of a glass for this. You can also use your hand if it's easier.

Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with sea salt and bake for about 10 minutes until crisp around the edges but still a little soft in the middle.

    The beauty of dried blueberries is that they work all year long:-) The base of these cookies looks amazing, I need to try this olive oil cookie dough.

    Blueberries I think are a year round thing, mostly because they’re so easily frozen. But I’m with you on no Christmas goodies for a while. That needs to hold off! Pass me a few of these babies in the meantime? 🙂

    Dried blueberries are a legit year-round choice! Besides, these cookies look heavenly and I don’t want to wait a year for them!

    I’m seeing Christmas cookies already! I have to admit I am happy about the pumpkin. These cookies would be good any time of year though. Dried blueberries and chocolate are always in season in my book.

    I’m sorry to say, I can barely contain myself over the joy of seeing pumpkin already. But, with that being said, I am not closing the door on summer fruits either! These cookies look great and we could devour them any time of year!

    Blueberries are totally a year round thing. I freeze them and we eat them all winter long. I bought some dried blueberries on my trip to Maine this summer and little did I know that I’ve been saving them for these cookies. Holy yes!!

    I agree that pumpkin recipes are completely taking over the internet, and have been for weeks now. Good for you for holding off until October. I’m proud of myself for holding off until September! LOL
    That said, I think blueberries can be a year round fruit. Why not? And, you could have gotten away with calling these Christmas cookies…but I’m glad you didn’t!

    OMG I totally agree. I thought I was going to lose it when I saw Halloween ads at the end of August….AUGUST!!!! I feel like I need to start making pumpkin recipes just to keep up and because that’s what everyone seems interested in. But I’m not ready for pumpkin! I’m still picking through the mealy peaches at the grocery store hoping to find a juicy one that captures summer glory. Anyways, these cookies look amazing for any time of the year!

    I do not have any dried blueberries only frozen. I do have some dried cherries though that I am thinking might be FABULOUS with your dark chocolate recipe.
