Flourless Nutella Brownies

These easy and fudgy flourless Nutella brownies are made with a blend of almond flour and hazelnut flour. Perfect for people following a gluten free diet.

“Flourless recipes” are one of the most common REQUESTS I have been been getting and these flourless Nutella brownies will rock your world!

You can’t even tell they are flourless.

These are NOT the typical two ingredient Nutella brownies you have been seeing all over the blogosphere.

I tried that recipe and I thought their texture was similar to truffles rather than brownies.

So, I got to work and started EXPERIMENTING…

These flourless Nutella brownies can be made with a combination of hazelnut and almond flour OR just store-bought gluten free flour.

I also tried making these brownies with coconut flour but that didn’t work out.

So, you have been WARNED…lol.

These brownies are already sooooo FUDGY that I really don’t think any frosting Is necessary.

But if you like, you can top them off with my coconut cream chocolate frosting (vegan and also gluten free).

Since I love DECORATED desserts, I drizzled a bit of melted white chocolate on each slice and tossed a few fondant flowers here and there.

flourless nutella brownies 3To make these flourless Nutella brownies, you will need the following ingredients:

Nutella Brownies:
1/4 cup hazelnut flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
100 grams (3.5 oz) Nutella
1/4 tsp espresso powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

Decoration:
Melted white chocolate
Red fondant flowers

Notes:
– You can replace the hazelnut flour and almond flour for 1/2 cup gluten free flour.
– My recipe is modified from Kirbie’s Cravings recipe here.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
In a mixing bowl, add Nutella, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and mix them together.

Step 2:
In a separate bowl, whisk together the hazelnut flour, almond flour, cocoa powder and espresso powder.

Step 3:
Dump this dry mixture into the wet mixture and mix until there are no lumps.

Step 4:
Pour this batter into a circular cake pan (Dimensions: 8×3).
Bake at 350 degrees for 23 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out with a few sticky crumbs.
If it comes out clean, you have over-baked them a bit but they will still taste great! (It’s just that I like my brownies slightly under-baked).

Step 5:
When the brownies have cooled down, slices them into triangles.
Drizzle some melted white chocolate on top of each slice.
Stick a few fondant flowers randomly.
And you are done making flourless Nutella brownies!
