  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee granules, preferably espresso
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons (45 grams) milk
  • 8 oz (225 grams) chopped chocolate, 55% cocoa
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cup (200 grams) all purpose flour (measure first, then sift or fluff with a fork)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 8 in x 11 in (21cm x 28cm) with baking paper (you can also use a 10 inch round pan - 26cm in diameter)

  4. Transfer mixture to the pan and bake for 25 – 30 minute or until center no more jiggly and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs.
  5. Let brownies cool for 10 minutes and transfer to a rack to cool completely and cut in square pieces. Eat!

Recipe Notes

For extra chocolaty brownies replace 1/4 cup of the flour with the same amount of cocoa powder (you’ll have 1/2 cup cocoa powder in total).
If you find the taste of olive oil overpowering or you have an olive oil with a strong taste, you can use half olive oil and half another vegetable oil.
