Ingredients:

4 oz unsweetened chocolate

1 oz bittersweet chocolate

1 C all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

4 eggs

1 T vanilla flavoring

2 C sugar

1/2 C butter

1/2 C Tasteful Olive's Orange Fusion Olive Oil

1 C walnuts, coarsely crushed

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 12 x 9 baking pan. On low heat, melt chocolate in sauce pan, sitrring constantly. Set aside to cool. In separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt, then add the sugar.  Melt the butter, place in another bowl and add the olive oil, then incorporate one egg at a time into this mixture. Add in vanilla and then the chocolate. Fold in the dry ingredients and walnuts, but don't overmix the batter. Pour mixture into the pan, smoothing off the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes until brownies pull away from the side of the pan. Most of the time it's best to let the brownies cool before cutting. Serves 12.
