  2. In a large bowl sift together all of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl add mix the sweetener and olive oil, whisk until thick, add in the vanilla, and continue to whisk.
  4. Add the eggs into the wet mix one at a time until fully incorporated. Add the wet mix into the dry mix, about 1/2 cup at a time, alternating between milk and egg mix.
  5. Keep adding in the wet mix and the milk, alternating until it’s all fully incorporate, and you have a smooth brownie batter.  Use a 1/3 cup scoop to fill the muffin liners. If you want to add nuts or chocolate chips you can sprinkle them on top!
  6. Bake for 25- 30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from one of the center brownies.
  7. Let them cool completely if you’re going to frost. If not, enjoy warm!
