This recipe is crazy. The good kind of crazy though. The genius kind of crazy.
Have you ever had a craving for something, but didn’t have everything that you needed to make it? Of course you have! Now these brownies solve that dilemma for all of us baking-nutella-lover’s. These amazzzing little brownie bites use only THREE ingredients!!
Are you already scouraging your cabinets for nutella? Or maybe you may just have to run out to the store right now… or put some on your grocery list to pick up the next time you are out. Because you have got to try these!
Nutella + eggs + flour= BROWNIES
Even the most kitchen weary individual could mix these up in less than five minutes and be eating them in just 15.
Have I sold you yet? Good. You need to know that these are not only easy and quick but they turn out these cute little bites that have an ooey gooey, underbaked center, which to be honest- is my favorite part of any brownie. I do have one bone to pick with them though.
Look at how much extra space is left in that muffin cup!
Kind of silly.
When you bake an exact dozen out of this recipe, you’ll get this height of a brownie.
Despite how you and I might feel about this, do NOT overfill the cups!
They are supposed to be bites overall… and that’s the proper size for a bite.
SO- withstand all urges to fill the muffin cup.
My Nutella was a bit stiff so I microwaved it for a few seconds to loosen it up.
It helps so that you can mix the eggs in much easier.
And if you don’t like Nutella, don’t even worry about it.
Nutella is used simply because it is sweetened which allows you to use one less ingredient.
The flavor is purely chocolate, not an overly strong hazelnut flavor to say the least.
I actually had just a scant cup of nutella when I made these and subbed in a bit of peanut butter because they are similar consistency’s.
Now, if you were interested in making peanut butter blondie bites you would have to add some sugar.
Maybe 1/3 cup? I don’t know, you’ll have to try it and find out.
Then, of course, let me know so I can try it too : ) hehe
UPDATE: I tried to sub peanut butter with some changes and I couldn’t quite get a good fit. So I tried THIS recipe for 3 ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies instead and they were so easy and delicious! Check it out!
