The best nutella brownies you will ever eat

Nutella contains hazelnuts, milk, and soy. To make these gluten-free I used King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure-For-Measure Flour and baked them 8-9 minutes longer.

Swirling the Nutella throughout the brownie dough will boost the flavor tenfold. Be careful not to mix the Nutella in, gently drag it through the batter with a dull knife.

Store brownies in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator if you plan on eating them in the next few days. For longer storage, freeze cut or uncut brownies in a freezer-safe container.

  • 1/3 cup Butter softened ~ I use salted butter

  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups Nutella
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup All-purpose flour ~ be sure to stir flour before measuring and spoon it into the measuring cup then level off. ~ for gluten-free use a one-to-one gluten-free flour blend.
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper leaving enough paper hanging over the edge to help lift out the brownies once they have cooled down.

  • Add eggs and vanilla and mix well on medium speed.
  • Add 1 cup of the Nutella and the salt and mix until smooth. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl when needed.
  • Add the flour and mix on low speed just until combined. Fold in optional chocolate chips. Or toss them on top before baking.

  • Drop teaspoonfuls of the remaining 1/4 cup Nutella over the top of the batter.
  • Using a knife gently swirl the Nutella through the batter being careful not to stir and mix.

  • Allow brownies to cool completely on a wire rack before lifting the brownies out of the pan.

  • Once the brownies are cool, cut them into squares.
  • Store brownies in an airtight container or freeze for longer storage.
