Micki's Simple Brownies
This is an old fashioned brownie . Because of the air whipped into the first stage of this recipe, it comes our crunchy and chewy....To make these brownies even more decadent, add a half cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I can't eat a brownie without a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream (and you shouldn't either).
|unsweetened chocolate squares
Pure or Light Olive Oil
pure vanilla extract
For added decadence only!!!
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 °F Coat an 8x8x2-in pan with olive oil cooking spray. In a small mixing bowl melt chocolate and Olive Oil for 1 minute 30 seconds; set aside. In a mixer; beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed for 5 minutes or more. Blend in chocolate mixture. Fold in flour and salt until just mixed. If adding chocolate chips, this would be the time. Mix in until just blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove, cool slightly. Serve and enjoy!
(this recipe can be made with Whole Wheat Pastry Flour)

At a recent Taste Kitchen hosted by Micki, we collected anonymous evaluations of the desserts served.
Below is a small sample of what they had to say:
Are you sure there is no shortening or butter? No way!
I am never going to stop eating desserts. Especially now that I can have them a little more healthier.
30% less fat and the fat is good fat? WOW!
They are lower in fat and calories? Now I will have to eat twice as much!
The Cinnamon twisties we fluffy, light and yummy.
I couldn't even tell a difference with the Rice Crispy Treats!
(The Oatmeal Pecan Chewies) are addictive, very rich, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Loved the All American Apple Pie - Best apple pie I've ever tasted. Especially the crust! How'd you do that?
I've never been a fan of Lemon Meringue Pie, until now. It tastes gourmet! I want the book!
And a special note from a guest at the Taste Kitchen, sums it all up:
What a great idea!! I'm so glad I could come and taste those yummy desserts. I am well aware that heart disease is the #1 killer of both men and women and to be able to replace the saturated fat with monounsaturated fat is a great step in the right direction of making healthier lifestyle choices. I love sweets and they will always be a part of my life (in moderation, of course) and to know that I can have the same delicious and satisfying taste in a dessert made with a healthier fat is exciting. Wow, I'm impressed! I had no idea the potential of olive oil in making sweet treats. Thanks for showing an olive oil novice new possibilities. I can't wait to buy your book!
Angelique from Provo, Utah Writes:
Oh, the Chocolate Sin Cookies (whole grain, olive oil, rolled in powdered sugar with dark chocolate chunk in the middle) are a hit no matter where we take them! We've had rave reviews from dinner guests, neighbors, school teachers, young children, judges (on a cooking school projectÂ my oldest daughter did - those were the ones you made FOR us, the first time, remember Micki?? :) No one believes they are whole grain or made with olive oil and everyone who we finally convince, wants to know the genius behind the recipe! Thanks, Micki!!

Micki promoted her signing by roving the convention center and handing out cookies (chocolate or lemon, which this reporter can attest are both delicious) made from recipes in her recently-published cookbook, Olive Oil Desserts: The enticement worked--there was a long line at her signing later in the day.
