Prep Time
Cook Time


⅓ cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup cocoa powder

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

¼  cup La Tourangelle Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

¼ cup sugar

1 tbsp brown sugar

½ tsp vanilla

3 tbsp hot coffee or hot water

2 tbsp tahini or other loose nut butter

Flakey salt – optional topping

Non-stick spray – La Tourangelle Avocado Oil Spray


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, olive oil, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and hot coffee or water in a small mixing bowl. Mix with a rubber spatula until smooth. The batter will be thick.

Spray 4 molds of a cupcake tin with non-stick spray. Divide the batter between the 4 molds. Top each brownie with ½ tsp of tahini. Swirl with a toothpick.

Bake the brownies for 20-22 minutes. Remove the brownies from the oven and top with a sprinkle of flakey salt. Allow the brownies to cool for at least 20 minutes before removing from the mold. Since there is no egg in the recipe, they are a little crumbly when fresh out of the oven. Allowing them to cool helps the brownies stick together.

Run a small knife around the edge of the brownies and then carefully release the brownies. Enjoy!
