Olive oil is delicious in desserts, especially our Orange Olive Oil! However, olive oil does not have the consistency of butter. This recipe uses bananas to ensure the brownies are moist and dense. Apple sauce also works great (instead of bananas).
Take the better than butter challenge! Order a bottle of Orange Olive Oil and try this recipe. If you don’t agree it’s better with olive oil, we’ll refund your purchase.
In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, and baking soda.
Once the dry mix is complete, add eggs, mashed bananas, vanilla, and Sciabica's Orange Olive Oil. Mix again.
Add chocolate chips and your choice of nuts to the wet mix.
Pour mix into a baking pan (we used a 9 inch square pan) and bake for 25-35 minutes at 350 degrees or until the center is done.
While the brownies are hot, pour more choclate chips over the top and let melt.
Spread melted chocolate chips over the top for a frosting and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Once the brownies are cool, enjoy!
