Chocolate Olive Oil Brownies

Wow.  Just wow!

Imagine the moistest, most chocolatey, rich brownie you have ever tasted and multiply that by a thousand.

These are decadent, indulgent, and crazy delicious!  Next time that I make these (and yes, there will be a next time for sure) I might add a teaspoon of cinnamon just for fun.

Regardless of what you add and/or how you serve them, they are wonderful and so easy to make.  Go for it!!!

By the way, this photo does not show the reality of my attempt to flip the brownies onto a tray.  One third of the brownie batch landed on the tray while two thirds stuck to the pan.  I managed to make it look like they held together in this picture but alas, nope.  Total mess, utter failure, but tasted great!

INGREDIENTS:  120 ml (1/2 cup) olive oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 150 grams (3/4 cup) granulated sugar, 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar, 3 large eggs, 40 grams (1/2 cup) cocoa powder, 70 grams (1/2 cup) plain flour, 75 grams (1/2 cup) chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Line an 8-inch square baking tin with baking or parchment paper.  In a large mixing bowl, add olive oil, vanilla and sugars and mix briefly.  In a separate bowl, add eggs and whisk with a fork for approximately 30 seconds or until combined.  Add eggs to sugar mixture, along with cocoa powder, flour and chocolate chips. Gently mix with a spoon or spatula to combine. Pour into prepared tin.  Bake for approximately 28-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Leave to cool slightly before removing from pan. They will firm up as they cool. Serve with ice cream or cream.
