Fudgy Olive Oil Brownies

awesome olive oil brownies

When it comes to brownie recipes, they are all my favorites. If you’re looking for a fudgy brownie with a glossy top, you’ll love this recipe.

Like anyone, I love baking with butter and coconut oil. It’s been years since I made brownies with olive oil. Not sure why. Oh, I’ll make up for lost time.

One great thing about using olive oil, rather than butter, the pure chocolate flavor pops through with a magical intensity. For your vegan brownie needs, here’s a fudgy brownie recipe. And another – this time for cocoa brownies.

In my world, recipes are merely suggestions. I’ll be following this recipe when I want a sweet and fudgy brownie. But I encourage experimentation in the kitchen. Use this recipe as a launching pad – make it your own by tweaking as desired. Sure, you may have some less than stellar experiments. Most likely, you’ll create a new favorite recipe. And I hope you’ll share it with me.
