Right now, at this very moment, all I can think about is these Nutella Brownies. I wish I had them next to me. I should start writing these posts while I still have said food in the fridge, or on the counter.

So… 2-Ingredient Nutella Brownies… I think I just stepped into Gluten-Free territory, and I didn’t even mean to.

I have made these brownies a million… no… a gazillion times, and this is a good time as any to share them with you.

Truth is, I didn’t want to share the recipe until I figured out a way to make these less eggy, if you will.

In fact, I was very skeptical about these brownies when I first made them. I thought, there is no way that a few eggs and a delicious jar of Nutella are going to bake-up together and give me a dessert that I can really enjoy.

It wasn’t quite as simple as I thought it was going to be to make these, but praise the heavens, I found a solution.

Lemme tell ya. It turns out that, one, you need to beat those eggs to death… with an electric mixer, of course… and then, you have to warm up the Nutella to almost hot, but not too hot, or just enough to thin it out, before you slowly add it to the eggs. HA! Piece of cake!

WHOA! Look at who got in on the action! :) She was all, like, gimme some...and I was all, like, no, I’m in the middle of photographing them… and she was like, um okay, I’ll just have to do this mahself! And she did…

😀

If you are expecting a brownie-like texture, this ain’t it. However, the taste and texture are similar to a fudgy brownie, but nowhere near as sweet. I didn’t add a sweetener to these, but you can most definitely dust them with some powdered sugar. That will definitely add a sweeter flavor.

The recipe makes exactly nine bars, and it is hard not to eat them all in one sitting.  I should know…

These little Nutella bites of yumminess have become our go-to chocolate snack around here, taking up space underneath that cake dome on a regular basis.

    I made these yesterday during a snow day – they came out really great! I did it the flourless cake way. I whipped the egg whites to high peaks, warmed the Nutella in a pot, tempered the yolks with heated Nutella and then added them to the pot. I folded into the egg whites poured into the pan and in 35 min Brownies came out of the oven! Really was a lot of fun to make. Thank you for this!!

  2. Jo says

    I noticed the others mentioned separating the eggs to whip then. Another trick is to whip them like a genoise: whole eggs whipped over a pot of simmering water. Heating them to about 80*C for best volume. This slightly coagulates them to hold better shape producing an airy product. Then fold in the warmed Nutella, deposit in pan and bake.

  3. says

    Although I embellished your recipe (I drizzled home made salty dulce de Leche and sprinkled with powdered sugar and mixed nuts) I found it to be deliciously semi sweet and gooey. I’d suggest doubling the recipe for the 8×8 pan, as the Brownies came out super thin and a bit difficult to manage . I’ll make it again that way. Pics on my page @ http://www.facebook.com/baldvivant

    Wondering if you’ve ever heated the Nutella on the stove and have any recommendations for how long/how hot? I don’t have a microwave but really want to try these. Medium heat until warm not hot maybe? Sounds crazy delicious!

    • says

      Hi Geraldine! Oh yeah, you can definitely pour a cup of Nutella in a saucepan and just heat it over medium heat for a couple of minutes, or until the Nutella is hot and thinned out. Hope you have a chance to try the brownies! :)

      • says

        Thanks! Seeing as it seems like it’s all about getting the temperature and the egg consistency right, I want to make sure I don’t mess it up. Contemplating going out just to get Nutella right now :)

  5. Betsy says

    I wonder if this would work in a more “flourless Cake” or souffle method. Whipping the whites separately to soft peaks and then slowly incorporating the yolks and nutella. it may save some of the “beating the eggs to death” and give it more body. I will have to try this and report back. :)

      • Betsy says

        I made these this way last night, they don’t look much different from your photo, but it only took 3 min to whip the egg whites up. seems like it’s probably the same deal either way. All I can say is the ones I made were really light and fluffy, so the might have gotten a smidge more air in them. :)

          • Betsy says

            yeah i did soft peaks on the whites, I have a KA mixer too, soft peaks don’t take as long as stiff peaks or whole eggs. but with the separating of eggs i think the time equals out. :)

    • Lee says

      I was about to recommend the same thing. Sounds very much like a flourless chocolate cake recipe. Mix the egg yolks and the Nutella until creamy. Whip the egg whites separately and then fold them into the mixture, then pour and bake. It should have a more airy texture if you do it this way, as you can’t really get the egg whites to whip properly as long as there are yolks present.

      One Jar of Nutella. No Fluid to take it down. A 750 gram jar, over 4,000 Calories, 400 grams of sugar and 200 grams of fat.Jun 27, 2011

        Yes, Nutella is high in calories, but this was not intended for anyone that is on a calorie-limiting diet. For those that are gluten intolerant, this is an easy and fast recipe for when you just want to snack on something sweet. One of these brownies is around 150 calories. Also, the recipe is for one cup of Nutella, not one jar.

    • Annie says

      Ha-ha! I found this recipe via a link that was featured in a HuffPost article, online! Guess that makes you ‘famous’, huh? Love Nutella – thanks for sharing! :)

  6. Jac says

    This looks amazing and I can’t wait to try :-). Would you be able to tell me how much the Nutella weighs because I live in the Uk and I am not sure if our cups are the same size.

    Thank you in advance xxx

      • Jac says

        Hi Katerina :-)

        Thanks for getting back to me xx

        I’m not really sure about the maths side of things ha ha.

        Will be honest, I had to Google lol. There seems to be several answers (220, 237, 268). Because you mentioned 300 I may just go somewhere in the middle and try 250 and see what happens. Thanks for your input anyway. Have a nice day :-) Hugs xxx

        • Kitty says

          remember you’re asking the weight equivelent of a volume measure so go with her assessment it’ll be more accurate. nutella has a lot of sugar and oil so it will be denser. I’d go with the 300 gms or convert to ML if that suits you to go by volume. volume of a US cup is 250 ml give or take. I just checked.

      • Grant Nivison says

        Dear Judy, here in the UK we don’t use the measurement of a ‘cup’ nor do most products (Nutella included) come in anything other than metric weight and volume…in fact the term cup is really only defined as a unit measurement in the US and Liberia. To most people in the UK a cup means nothing other than something you drink tea out of…added to which the US fluid ounce is a different size to the (no longer in use) imperial fluid ounce. Leaves plenty of room for confusion and difference as Jac discovered.
        An 8oz US cup is equal to 236.8ml. As mentioned there is no valid conversion from volume to mass. 237ml of water would weigh 237 grams but as Nutella is far denser the weight would be greater…only info for this is found on comparison charts (all different) where I have seen 1 US cup of Peanut Butter weighed at 258g. So 240ml or 260g should be ok……

        • says

          Thanks so much, Grant, for chiming in! Cup measurements are most definitely confusing and as someone who writes recipes for a living, I find that converting from grams to cups or vice versa is very challenging. This is also the reason why I try to stay away from posting too many baking recipes; I use the metric system when baking because it’s most accurate, but converting is not an easy task.

        • Cherry says

          You can buy cups from Asda in the UK. They come in 1 cup, half a cup, 1/3rd of a cup & 1/4 cup. They are in bright colours & fit inside each other, similar to the spoon measures.

        • Nealla StClair says

          When we lived in Indonesia and Venezuela, I kept a conversion chart on the fridge. The good news is between cooking and sewing, I became quite adept at the metric system…lol.

  7. rebecca says

    Decided to try this recipe but I cut it in half and am cooking it in the microwave. Lol guess I never got out of the college girl mindset. 3 minutes and 20 seconds on high in my microwave and it comes out more like a cake than brownies. Still nummy though

  8. Hannah H says

    Just did these in my cast iron and used caramelized brown sugar and bananas for the topping. Holy bananas, I don’t even like brownies and this is delcious!

  9. Scarlet Sieiro says

    We don’t have large eggs here so if I had to use normal sized eggs, how many would that be ?

    • says

      Hi Scarlet!

      A large egg is about 56 grams. For this recipe you will need 224 grams. Do you have a kitchen scale? If you do, set a bowl over the scale, turn it on, and break eggs into the bowl until you have enough. Does this help? Let me know!

      • David Feuer says

        You’re much better off putting whole eggs in the bowl, weighing it, and adjusting the amount of Nutella. Trying to split eggs does not sound like fun.

  10. Emma says

    hey :) these brownies look AMAZING!! but I’ve one or two questions… firstly the oven temp is that 350 degrees celsius??? and are these brownies moist or dry when cooked?

    • says

      Hi Emma! No, 350 fahrenheit! :) That is about 180 celsius.
      They are very moist, almost fudgy, but they are not very sweet. If you want to sweeten them, add powdered sugar when they’re finished.

  11. says

    Believe it or not, I had planned to search for some nutella recipes today, and ‘just happened’ to see this one before I began my search. PERFECT! I just took them out of the oven and can’t wait to dive in. I topped ours with nuts….oh YUUUM! Thanks so much for sharing.

  12. Christena says

    Just posted this on my Facebook page after seeing your 2-Ingredient Nutella Brownies on Pinterest.

    “Seriously?!? Thinking of making homemade Nutella 1st (to avoid the store-bought product’s vegetable oil, milk & soy), & then using it in these brownies. The end-result could be a gluten & dairy-free Thanksgiving dessert … served warm, topped with fresh berries & perhaps drizzled with some more homemade Nutella. YUM!

    P.S. Thanks Kate @ http://diethood.com/!”

  13. says

    This looks absolutely delicious! I can’t believe you need just Nutella and eggs. I only wish I had an electric mixer with me in college, but alas I will have to wait until the summer to make this!

  14. arouj says

    can you meet the eggs without a mixer, or should the eggs be only beaten with a mixer and be fluffy like whipped? Thank you.

  15. says

    These look absolutely tasty and I can’t wait to try to make them later!

    Just one question:
    How much is in that nutella jar you’re using? Because over here we have big ones and small ones and I’m not so sure which one you used :)

    thanks for sharing this!

  16. Nancy R says

    It just gets better Kate! Two ingredients only……Wow! Gotta give these a go for sure :-)

    Your daughter is so adorable and looks so much like Goce. :-)

  17. says

    Two ingredients? This is brilliant! Eggs and Nutella, who would have thought? I LOVE the cute baby hand reaching for a treat. I have many of these pics, as well. “Wait! Mama’s not done with her pict…..ughhh..”
