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.

If you happen to have some eggs sitting around and a jar of Nutella, well, go gettem and whip up a batch – you won’t be disappointed. I hope!

    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

      Hi Jac!

      1 cup is 8-ounces. For the Nutella, I’m looking at the label and, if my math is correct, one cup of Nutella is somewhere around 300 grams? Does that sound right? haha :-D

        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

    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

      Hi Rebecca!!

      That’s GENIUS!! I literally want to go and try your microwave-version right now! Thanks for the idea!! :-))

    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!

    • Katerina Petrovska September 18, 2014 at 8:02 AM - Reply

      Oh Good!! I’m so happy to hear that you are enjoying them!!
      So I’m not the only one that doesn’t like classic brownies?!? YES! ;-)

  5. Scarlet Sieiro July 14, 2014 at 4:16 AM - Reply

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

    • Katerina Petrovska July 14, 2014 at 8:45 AM - Reply

      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!

    TIP: Don’t just put the jar of Nutella in the microwave. It WILL catch on fire

  7. Emma June 17, 2014 at 1:35 PM - Reply

    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?

    • Katerina Petrovska June 17, 2014 at 3:13 PM - Reply

      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.

    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.

    • Katerina Petrovska June 12, 2014 at 10:45 AM - Reply

      YAY! I’m so happy you enjoyed them!! I love these brownies – so simple, so quick, and SO good! :-)

    How is it possible to get crumbs from just nutella and eggs? Life is such a mystery, Love the brownies.

  10. louann February 3, 2014 at 1:08 PM - Reply

    Can you use egg substitute or does it have to be normal eggs?

    • Katerina Petrovska February 3, 2014 at 1:16 PM - Reply

      Hi Louann!! I honestly don’t know. I have never tried that. If you decide to go ahead and see how it goes, please let me know!

    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/!”

    • Katerina Petrovska November 1, 2013 at 11:48 PM - Reply

      Now that would be totally homemade and literally “from scratch”! :-D Thanks SO much for sharing on Facebook. I really, really appreciate it!! Have a great night!

    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!

    • Katerina Petrovska May 6, 2013 at 8:57 PM - Reply

      I just made these again for the billionth time, but this time I used a handheld mixer and it worked!! FYI! :) Go to the nearest store and grab a $15 mixer and make them. :)

  13. arouj April 15, 2013 at 1:43 PM - Reply

    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.

    • Katerina Petrovska April 15, 2013 at 2:05 PM - Reply


      Yes, you need an electric mixer to do the work. The eggs need to be fluffy and they need to triple in size. I think it would be impossible to do that without a mixer.

  14. holger April 15, 2013 at 1:40 AM - Reply

    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!

    • Katerina Petrovska April 15, 2013 at 10:03 AM - Reply

      HI! :)

      It’s the smaller jar. I wish I had one right now so I could tell you the exact amount that’s on the jar…and so I could dig in. :-D You only need 1 cup for this recipe.

      • holger April 15, 2013 at 9:48 PM - Reply

        great, SO looking forward to trying these!!

    Nice! I’m a fan of simplicity, and two ingredients is about as simple as you can get…

    Sounds like magic! And clearly your daughter had to take matters into her own hands. I don’t think I could have kept my paws off them either!

      hehe :) She can’t even walk, yet, but she held on to the furniture, and from one chair to the next, she made it! :)

      I haven’t tried it with Biscoff, but I don’t see why not!

  25. Averie @Averie Cooks March 27, 2013 at 11:09 AM - Reply

    Great idea! It’s like PB cookies (or Nutella cookies) or a flourless chocolate cake…where the only ingredients are the eggs and then the nut butter/sugar or cocoa powder/sugar. Great idea!

    Mind blowing when something sweet has only two recipes and one of them is nutella… I make the 3 ingredient cupcakes (just add 5 tbs flour to this recipe), but 2, that´s genius!

    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..”
