  • 8x8 Baking Pan
  • Mixing Bowl


  • ½ cup Blood orange infused olive oil
  • 1 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • cup Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup All-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Baking powder
  • Zest of 1 blood orange optional, for extra flavor
  • ½ cup Chocolate chips optional, for extra richness


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a square baking pan (8x8 inches) or line it with parchment paper for easier removal.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the blood orange infused olive oil and sugar. Mix until well combined.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated. Stir in the vanilla extract and blood orange zest if using.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  • If using chocolate chips, fold them into the batter until evenly distributed.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it out evenly.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter). Be careful not to overbake, as brownies can become dry.
  • Once baked, remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


Here are some additional tips to ensure your Blood Orange Infused Olive Oil Chocolate Brownies turn out perfectly:
  1. Use High-Quality Ingredients: Since this recipe relies on the flavors of blood orange infused olive oil, it's essential to use high-quality oil. Look for a reputable brand that uses real blood oranges in their infusion process for the best flavor.
  2. Properly Measure the Ingredients: Accurate measurements are crucial for baking, so use measuring cups and spoons rather than eyeballing the amounts. This ensures consistency and helps achieve the desired texture.
  3. Do Not Overmix the Batter: Overmixing can lead to tough brownies. Mix the batter until the dry ingredients are just incorporated into the wet ingredients. It's okay if there are a few lumps remaining.
  4. Adjust Sweetness to Taste: Depending on your preference, you can adjust the amount of sugar in the recipe. If you prefer your brownies less sweet, you can reduce the sugar slightly without affecting the texture too much.
  5. Check for Doneness Carefully: Brownies can go from perfectly fudgy to dry and crumbly in just a few minutes. Keep a close eye on them towards the end of the baking time and perform the toothpick test to check for doneness.
  6. Allow Brownies to Cool Completely: While it may be tempting to dig into warm brownies, allowing them to cool completely before slicing will result in cleaner cuts and better texture. This also allows the flavors to develop fully.
  7. Experiment with Garnishes: Get creative with toppings and garnishes to enhance the presentation and flavor of your brownies. Sprinkle some powdered sugar, drizzle with melted chocolate, or add a few thin slices of blood orange on top for an elegant touch.
  8. Store Properly: To keep your brownies fresh, store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days. You can also freeze them for longer storage, tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and aluminum foil.
