Nutella Brownies

When you have a big jar of Nutella in your pantry that is about to expire, you run to Google for help and key in words like "recipes with Nutella." We wanted a no-brainer, one-bowl recipe so the three-ingredient Nutella Brownies from Buzzfeed was just perfect. We actually made it into a four-ingredient recipe by throwing in a cup of chopped pecans (we have 3 bags of Kirkland Pecans sitting in the kitchen cabinet), to add a bit of crunch and to balance the sweetness. They turned out really good and not overly sweet.

Here are the ingredients:

1 1/4 cups Nutella spread
2 eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350F or around 177C. Grease or line a rectangular baking pan.
2. Mix Nutella and eggs, adding one at a time until well combined.
3. Add in the flour to the mixture. The batter will be thick, gooey and chocolatey.
4. Fold in chopped nuts. Spread batter on pan and bake for 15 minutes at 350F. Do not overbake as it will become dry and crumbly.
5. Cool and cut into squares.

For those who are wondering why this recipe only has three ingredients, Nutella plays a key role here by taking the place of sugar and butter. They are so easy to make and so yummy too! Try it and let me know how it turns out! One blogger shared a four-ingredient Chewy Nutella Cookie recipe, and it looks as good too. Will try it next time.
