I am gonna just start by saying that these Nutella Brownies are the BEST brownies you will ever make!!! And I do not say that lightly friends. As you know I am a major chocoholic and brownies may as well be listed as a food group for me. I mean take my Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake as an example of my extreme chocolate obsession!

This recipe was adapted from my friend at Aileen Cooks during a monthly recipe swap we were doing and as soon as I saw her Nutella Brownies I was done…heart stopped, drool running down my face, done. I mean can you blame me…look at how they turned out!! I love the little pockets of chocolate chips mixed with the hazelnut goodness of the Nutella.

how to make brownies from scratch

Believe it or not, making brownies from scratch is actually really easy! You want to first combine your wet ingredients; in this case the Nutella with eggs and vanilla, and then in a separate bowl sift your dry ingredients together. Once these two steps are finished you combine them together and only mix until you can no longer see the dry ingredients. You DO NOT want to over mix a brownie batter!

How to Bake Brownies from Scratch

Once your batter is prepared you’ll want to get them in the oven to bake so you can enjoy them sooner! To bake brownies from scratch you need to start with preparing your pan; always grease the pan you are using so the brownies don’t stick, then you will place the brownies in your preheated oven for the set amount of time as outlined in your recipe. Keep an eye on them during baking time and remove them when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean (minus any gooey goodness from add ins like chocolate chips/nutella).

    • oliveblogger says:

      I haven’t tried it personally, it is tricky with baking to know if it would work okay 🙂 If you double it your cooking time will be longer, I would keep a close eye and make sure not to overmix the batter so it still has the same consistency. Please let me know if you try!

    Omg, yum! You had me at Nutella. I cannot believe how little ingredients it requires. I just pinned this for later.

      Hi Raelene! Not at all, they are added for extra chocolate flavor as well as some texture – you can definitely make these brownies without them and still have a tasty treat.
