Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Star buttered flavored olive oil from Walmart #STAROliveOil #shop #cbias

I love olive oil. I use it every day. I also love butter… but I use it sparingly. Butter tastes so good, but I love the benefits of olive oil. So when I was at Walmart recently and saw Star Butter flavored Olive Oil… I grabbed that bottle of olive oil up.

Quickly.

Just so you know how much I really love butter, I used to get in the fridge and get sticks of butter and go hide under the dining room table and eat them. Seriously. I’m a butter freak. My Mom said that she found me eating butter like that several times as a child.

I grew out of that phase, thankfully, but I love the flavor of butter still today. Plus my waistline thanks me.

As I was saying, I saw the Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil at Walmart with a conversion chart tag on the bottle and knew this was an answer to my problems (well, at least to the problem of how to have that rich buttery taste with the goodness of olive oil in my recipes).

If you’re gluten intolerant, Star Olive Oil is gluten free and dairy free, too.

I’ve been craving oatmeal raisin cookies, my all-time favorite cookie, but hate using a stick of butter to make them. I never even thought about using olive oil in baking before, either, but with the butter flavored olive oil, I had to try it.

I also decided to use the Star Butter flavored Olive Oil to baste my turkey breast for Thanksgiving. I rubbed it on the inside of the turkey skin and all over the outside. It turned out perfectly. It was gobbled up… pun intended.

And yesterday I was wanting some roasted brussel sprouts and I love keeping it simple with brussel sprouts, with just a little salt, pepper, and either olive oil or butter. Now I can do both! Ta-Da!

    i have been wanting to try the buttered flavored olive oil since it is better to cook with it than butter itself. and i have to have my veggies with butter on it .

  2. Butter flavored olive oil sounds wonderful to bake with! Your cookie recipe sounds really yummy too.

  7. Hi Donna,

    I loved the fact that you were a butter freak earlier…lol….I guess that’s why they say all good things are fattening 🙂

    I just keep away from butter, and yes, we also use Olive oil but keep changing the oil off and on as that’s recommended too. Lovely recipe, though being a vegetarian, what substitute would you suggest for egg in this one? I know I have a problem in some of the cake and biscuit recipes because of that, so usually try the ones without them.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend 🙂

  8. I didn’t know they made a butter flavored olive oil – this recipe sounds great!

  9. Wow – I’d never heard of butter flavored olive oil. But I can definitely see how it would be a big hit. I’ll have to be on the lookout for it. I definitely love cooking with olive oil. And I love the image of you eating sticks of butter under the dining table. LOL!

  10. Those cookies look fantastic. I also think I’d love this oil instead of butter on my brussels sprouts after seeing your picture. Thanks for sharing!

    Happy Friday Donna!

  12. Sicorra says:

    Always love cookies. I just recently read somewhere else about the butter flavored oil. Someone was using it to make their popcorn and I thought that would be a good idea too.

  13. Tanya says:

    I love butter too, although I don’t think I have ever loved it enough to eat it under the kitchen table. LOL!! Unlike you, I haven’t given it up and my waistline definitely shows it. I still do a lot of baking with butter because nothing compares, so I am definitely intrigued by butter olive oil. I use olive oil in almost all my cooking but it would be nice to swap some butter for olive oil in my baking. It’s been awhile since I’ve had oatmeal cookies and now I have a craving. 🙂

  14. Shell Feis says:

    I’ve never made oatmeal raisin cookies but I love them so I’ll have to try this! Thanks!

    Never heard of Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil. Don’t know if they sell it in the stores I grocery shop, but will look for it the next time I’m there. Wonder how it would work as popcorn oil?

  20. Lolo says:

  27. Oh how wonderful! They look really yummy!

  28. Colleen says:

    I’m thinking I’ll take the cookies over the brussell sprouts LOL!

  29. I’ve never thought to use olive oil in a cookie recipe but that means it would make it an option for me as I’ve tried to cut out gluten and dairy! YAY

    Thanks for the Post, Pictures, and the Recipe!

  34. I haven’t had an oatmeal raisin cookie in forever – I’ll have to try these.

  35. I’ve never heard of butter flavored olive oil, interesting.

  36. I also love the taste and also the smell of butter. A little strange, I know. I’m glad to hear that the olive oil you’re speaking of is gluten-free. More and more people are finding out about their gluten allergy.
