1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled

3 eggs

2 cups sugar

6 tablespoons Amaretto

1 cup toasted sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×13 inch pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.

Beat the eggs and sugar together until light.

Add olive oil, cooled melted chocolate, and 4 tablespoons amaretto  to the egg mixture. Mix well.

In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the chocolate/egg mixture and blend just to combine. Stir in nuts. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched and sides just begin to pull away from sides. Remove and allow to cool. Brush the top of brownies with the remaining amaretto. Slice into 8-16 pieces.
