Hazelnut Oil Brownies

Hazelnut Oil Brownies
It’s also a really big post day as this post marks my first formal one for La Tourangelle Oils. As many of you have seen I’ve posted several recipes using their products and through some emailing am excited to start formally doing recipe development alongside them in the weeks ahead. Today I decided to use the company’s hazelnut oil to create these brownies you see here. The hazelnut oil adds an extra element to the brownie in between all of the chocolatey goodness. You can taste it with every bite almost as if the brownie has been hazelnut infused. It also gives the brownie an extra element of moistness beyond the usual suspects in a typical brownie recipe.

My ideal brownie is loaded with chocolate chunks and so moist it almost seems cake-like. But growing up one of my biggest pet peeves was buying the boxed brownie mixes and expecting those big, thick ones pictured on the box and instead getting those flat ones that barely rose above the bottom of my 9 by 13 pan. It seemed to me if you wanted the thick slab of brownie one would have to buy two or maybe even three boxes to get the desired size. Thank goodness for being able to bake on my own as mine as you can see are thick (and completely worthy of a fork or a side of vanilla ice cream).
