5-Ingredient Nutella Brownies

Have you ever wished you could just hold a piece of Nutella in your hands and bite it instead of that awkward licking it off a spoon thing? Well, here’s the answer to those prayers and all you need is a bowl, a spoon and five ingredients. Oh and something to bake the brownies in.


Nutella brownie recipes have been floating around for a while but after a few run ins with recipes that consumed a jar or more of Nutella and had minimal Nutella taste I was very hesitant to try them. One day I succumbed, but not after making some alterations. First of all, I didn’t see the point in additional butter, second of all a little leavening never hurt anything and third of all Nutella is so sweet that some coarse salt is almost a must have. The result is what I had hoped it would be.

The best part? Because they are so gooey they don’t dry out making them a great make ahead dessert for the holiday season!

So without any further ado I present to you these incredibly gooey undeniably Nutella-y brownies.

5-ingredient Nutella Brownies

1 13-oz jar Nutella

2 eggs

1/2 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

coarse salt or sea salt for sprinkling


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Very lightly grease a square pan/dish – you can use a 9*9 or an 8*8. Crack the eggs into a bowl, whisk to break up the yolks, then briskly stir in the nutella till well combined, fold in the flour and baking powder. Spread in your pan, sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake for 22-26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean. The middle should look set.


These brownies stay very soft and gooey so let them cool before cutting into squares. Or grab a spoon and have some fun – whose judging.
