These double chocolate walnut cookies have a lot going on, and I mean that in a good way. The cookie batter has both melted chocolate and cocoa powder. Then we add walnuts, dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and a sprinkling of sea salt.
But don’t let all of that fool you! These cookies come together in no time. The wet ingredients get blended together first with the melted chocolate. Then the dry ingredients get mixed just until combined. Finally, we fold in the mix-ins by hand.
These can totally be made without an electric mixer.
The cookies don’t spread much, so you only need 2″ between each cookie on the sheet. I use a medium scoop and I get 17 cookies.
Be sure to bake them right after mixing. If the dough sets for too long, it becomes more difficult to scoop.

- Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a microwave safe bowl, combine the butter and chopped dark chocolate. Melt in 20 second intervals, stirring between each one, until completely melted.
- Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl. Add both sugars and mix until smooth and well combined.
- Add oil, eggs and vanilla and continue mixing until well combined.
- In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Whisk to remove any lumps.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined.
- Add the chocolate chips and walnuts and fold in by hand.
- Use a medium scoop to scoop out the cookie dough onto the prepared sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
- Optional: Sprinkle with sea salt as soon as they come out of the oven.
- I like to use olive oil, but any vegetable oil will work.
- These cookies are not overly sweet due to the dark chocolate. If you like your cookies on the sweeter side, swap out a sweeter chocolate for the dark chocolate.
