Guys, the Monday after vacation is ROUGH.
But thankfully, I’ve got these awesome Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
Because chocolate makes everything better!
Also, these cookies are AH-mazing – earthy, sweet, and salty all rolled into one package.
I actually came up with them because I was craving cookies super badly (because who doesn’t crave cookies all the time?) and I had bits and bobs hanging around my pantry.
Not enough butter? I can add some olive oil! (total inspiration from Rebecca at Displaced Housewife).
Some leftover sea salt? Sprinkle it ALL OVER EVERYTHING.
Running low on flour? Add some oat bran!
A bunch of dark chocolate bars in the pantry? Chop those babies up and add them in.
These cookies were a total mishmash, but they turned out so well. I wanted to call them Olive Oil Oat Bran Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies… but that’s a mouthful. So for your convenience, please enjoy the recipe for these Salt Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Because they totally make the Mondays go away!!
