The Best Healthy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These healthy chewy chocolate chip cookies are refined sugar-free, made with dairy-free butter, and require no chill time. This recipe really is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe!













  • 1 C Country Crock Olive Oil stick butter (room temperature)
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 1 C Stevia
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2¾ C all-purpose flour (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 C sugar-free chocolate chips*
  • Sea salt, to finish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined, about another minute.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula until just combined.
  4. Scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough together and roll into a ball. (You can also use a 2 Tbsp cookie scoop!) Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat until you have 5 cookies per pan. Feel free to add additional chocolate chips to the top of the cookies if you want to.
  5. Bake for 11-12 minutes on the middle rack of the oven. When finished baking, reshape into circles** and sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and cool for another 10 minutes.


*I use Lily's Dark Chocolate Chips, but any sugar-free chocolate chips will work, including vegan chocolate chips.

**You can do this with a cookie scooter or a bowl that is just bigger than the cookie. Place the object over and around the cookie, then swirl in circles a few times to fix the warped edges of the cookie until they're perfectly round.
