Is there anything more delicious than Nutella? I think not.

I grew up eating Nutella on an almost daily basis. My morning toast had a generous portion slathered on and, more than a few times, I enjoyed spoonfuls from the jar.

In terms of recipes using it, I have a few favorites up my sleeve. I enjoy stuffing it in cookies and making fat bombs with it. Currently, though, I’ve been loving Nutella brownies.

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • We can make it with either traditional Nutella or sugar free Nutella. I opted to use a sugar free chocolate spread which looks and tastes like the real deal, minus the carbs or sugar! 
  • It needs just 3 ingredients- Nutella (or alternative), almond flour, and eggs. 
  • The fudginess is on another level. Even though there is no butter or oil needed, they will taste like any good bakery-style brownie.
  • Everything is made in one bowl, so there is NO excessive clean up required.

What I love about these brownies is just how easy they are to make. I often make an entire batch after dinner and serve it with a scoop of ice cream and drizzle more Nutella on top- It’s the epitome of comfort food!

How to make Nutella brownies

The Ingredients.

  • Chocolate hazelnut spread– Either Nutella or Nutilight, which is a keto friendly chocolate hazelnut spread. I don’t recommend homemade Nutella, as it is too thick and natural to form a smooth batter. 
  • Eggs- room temperature eggs. For an egg free option, use a packaged egg replacer- NOT flax eggs or chia eggs. 
  • Almond Flour- blanched almond flour, not almond meal. 

The Instructions. 

Start by whisking together the Nutella, eggs, and almond flour until a thick batter remains. Transfer into a greased square pan and bake for 25-27 minutes, or until a skewer comes out mostly clean.

Now, remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool in the pan completely, before slicing and serving.

How to make Nutella brownies without eggs? 

If you’ like to make eggless Nutella brownies, you can use one of the following egg substitutes:

  • Aquafaba (liquid from a chickpea can)
  • Egg replacement (like Bob’s Red Mill egg replacement)
  • Flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons warm water) 

Do not use chia eggs or any other egg replacement, as they will not yield firm and chewy brownies. 

Tips to make the best recipe

  • Your chocolate spread should be smooth. If it is a little too firm, microwave it for 30-40 seconds. 
  • Do not over-bake the brownies, as they continue to cook as they cool. 
  • For ultra gooey brownies, remove them from the oven at the 25 minute mark. For thicker and chewier brownies, remove at the 30 minute mark. 

Storing and freezing instructions

  • To store: Leftovers can keep at room temperature, in a sealable container. They will keep well for up to 5 days. Store them in the refrigerator to keep them for up to 2 weeks.
  • To freeze: Store them in a ziplock bag or container, and they’ll keep for at least 6 months.

    1. 🙂 There does not seem to be a hyperlink to the homemade hazelnut-chocolate spread? Am I missing it? Also, do you recommend the finer ground almond flour or almond meal?

      TiA

    2. Thank you so much for your response:) I unfortunately cannot have almond flour/meal or coconut flour and these are used a lot in gf free baking… What would you say is the best alternative to replace these with in your recipes that use either of them or both?

    3. I made these vegan using the flax egg and the homemade Nutella recipe. After processing the hazelnuts/cocoa/and monkfruit sugar until my food processor started smoking..it was still pretty nutty? Is there a way to make the homemade Nutella more smooth? It seemed almost perfect..until I baked it. The brownies became more of a nut loaf lol!

      Thank you for the recipe!

    4. Hey Arman,
      just wondering if I can use chocolate (cacao) almond butter instead of hazelnut spread?

      Love your website!

    5. I can’t wait to try these. Can the recipe be halved? (Of course my husband is asking why I would want to. Ha!)
