2-Ingredient Nutella Brownies (Gluten Free) & A Giveaway!

*GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*

You're gonna love me for sharing this simple recipe...

And am offering a jar of organic nutella (or hazelnut spread with cocoa and milk) from Nocciolata USA too...so you can make your own!

I was so tickled to be contacted by this great company. They not only offered to send me samples, they're willing to give a jar away to one of my readers!! 


Hurrah!! 

From their website...

 Nocciolata (SRP: $4.99; 9.5oz) is crafted using carefully selected ingredients such as dark chocolate from the Antillean Islands, Italian hazelnuts (16%), brown sugar, skim milk and Bourbon vanilla extract.

This deliciously smooth spread is gluten-free, kosher and has no palm oil, hydrogenated fat, artificial flavors or artificial colors or aromas. Nocciolata can be enjoyed on toast or croissants and is also a great ingredient for enhancing the flavor of any cake, cookie or muffin recipe.

------------------------------

The same day I decided to hunt online for a recipe to use my beloved jar of creamy chocolate, this recipe seemed to find me, and I simply couldn't resist! 

TWO Ingredients you ask?  Yep...that's it! 


You beat the fire out of eggs - then add the jar (or 1 cup) chocolate hazelnut nutella spread, and that's it!

They are fudgey and fabulous.  We like nuts on top, but that isn't necessary.  You can just sprinkle powdered sugar over the top if you prefer....or not. 

Thank you to Katerina at Diethood for perfecting this recipe...and just in case you're wondering...

NO...hers is NOT a dieting type blog. *-* Would love for you to stop over and visit her. 


2-INGREDIENT NUTELLA BROWNIES 

4 large eggs
1 c. nutella
nuts or powdered sugar, optional

Preheat oven to 350. Line an 8" X 8" pan with parchment paper (no need to grease); set aside.

Place eggs in medium mixing bowl; with an electric mixer, beat for 7 - 10 minutes, or until eggs have tripled in size. 

Heat nutella in microwave for 45 - 55 seconds. 
(depending on power of your M/W) 

You want it to be pourable, but not hot. Remove from microwave and stir. 

Slowly pour the warm nutella over the eggs, beating until smooth. 

Pour into prepared pan and bake 30 - 32 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 

(If using nuts, sprinkle over the top before baking - they'll get toasted and so yum!)

Remove and allow to cool to room temp before cutting. Dust with powdered sugar. Cut and serve. 

You're welcome!
