Is it okay to use extra virgin olive oil when baking brownies?

I’m baking brownies for myself using Pillsbury Fudge Supreme brownie mix, and it calls for 1/3 cup of oil. But, I have no idea what type of oil, and all I have is extra virgin olive oil. Is that fine to use? Please help!

    extra virgin olive oil sometimes has a stonger flavor then vegetable oil, or cannola oil . i wouldn’t use it in a dessert dish i would use a lighter oil or shortening even a solid margarine would be a better choice.

    I would not. EVOO has a distinct flavor that would not taste good in baked products,try a veg.oil like canola that has no specific taste to it.

    Extra Virgin version of olive oil is NOT a good choice in baking sweets. This version of olive oil is from it’s first cold pressing and so it has a very fruity flavor and aroma which lends itself very nicely to savory dishes, but not to baked goods.
    You can use a light olive oil for sweets, although it’s not the best choice, because it’s the third prssing of the fruit (yes, olives are a fruit) and so it won’t interfere with the aroma of chocolate as much.
    I recommend butter or canola oil for baking. The butter has a lot of saturated fat, but gives the best flavor and texture. Canola is the healthiest choice of the two; contributing no transfats to the recipe.
    Good luck.

    Olive oil can burn easily. It might taste different but you can do it. You could substitute with butter, vegetable oil or shortening.
