Spiced Olive Oil Brownies

What’s better than a warm brownie? A spiced, warm brownie! This olive oil brownie includes a trio of comfort spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Make them even cozier with espresso. They are dairy-free and delicious!

Baking High

In these Spiced Olive Oil Brownies, you can infuse the olive oil with any cannabis strain(s) of your choice. I would recommend a strain that has deep & earthy or rich & spicy terpenes that will compliment the trio of spices and espresso in the brownies.

Use an edible dosage calculator, such as this one by hempster, to calculate a dose that is right for you.

Cannabis (in grams)0.7

Table: Baking High edible example for Spiced Olive Oil Brownies


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, baking soda, and salt.
  • Whisk half of 1/3 cup olive oil and boiling water (with espresso, optional) into cocoa powder mixture until smooth.
  • Add sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and remaining olive oil. Whisk until smooth.
  • Slowly add flour a third at a time and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour batter into pan and smooth with a rubber spatula to ensure that the batter is evenly distributed and level in the pan.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick or knife comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely before slicing.*

* If you infused your brownies with cannabis: use a ruler to measure out either 12 or 16 servings. Measure, mark, and cut an (a) 3×4 grid for 12 servings or (b) 4×4 grid for 16 servings of brownies. By precisely measuring out your servings, the dosage of each serving is likely to be more even and consistent.
