Nutella is a creamy, smooth chocolate hazelnut spread that has a rich, nutty sweetness and velvety texture. It’s like a spreadable chocolate bar! Growing up we used to enjoy peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches, but its traditionally used spread on bread or toast, as a dip, or in baked goods like these delicious 3 ingredient Nutella brownies. 

Brownies are the perfect dessert to make with this popular chocolate spread. Nutella’s intense hazelnut-chocolate flavor enriches the brownies without extra ingredients and no cocoa powder. Just Nutella, eggs, and gluten-free flour are needed to whip up these fudge like brownies. Nutella supplies the chocolate taste and sweetness, eggs bind and moisten, and gluten-free flour provides the necessary structure for rich, moist brownies. You’ll never buy brownie mix again!

Serve GF Nutella brownies at Christmas with a dusting of powdered sugar for a festive touch, or bring them to the Thanksgiving table as a chocolaty alternative to pie. They’re also great for Easter, adding a sweet twist to the dessert spread. These brownies are a hit at birthday parties, bake sales, or even as a casual weekend treat. Pair them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a classic combo or alongside a cup of coffee for a pick-me-up. Quick to make and even quicker to disappear, these brownies are the best dessert for gatherings, holidays, and everything in between!

🍫Ingredients & Equipment

  • Nutella – Acts as the star of the show, providing a rich chocolate hazelnut flavor while also contributing to the brownies’ moist, fudgy texture.  
  • Eggs – Serve as the binding agent that holds everything together, adding moisture and richness for that quintessential brownie chew.  
  • Gluten Free Flour Blend (King Arthur) – Gives structure to the brownies, ensuring they don’t just taste great but also have the perfect crumbly yet tender texture, with King Arthur brand recommended for consistent results.
  • Loaf Pan – Because they are made with 3 ingredients, they are made in smaller batches. Baking Nutella brownies gluten free is best baked in a loaf pan. 

📖How To Make Nutella Brownies with 3 Ingredients

1️⃣ Prepare for baking: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan and set aside.

2️⃣ Mix the Nutella brownie batter: In a large bowl, whisk eggs until combined. Add Nutella and flour and mix until a smooth batter forms.

3️⃣ Add to loaf pan: Pour brownie batter into the prepared greased loaf pan, leveling out the height with a spatula.

👩🏻‍🍳Chef Val’s Cooking Tips

  • Start with eggs at room temperature to ensure they whisk to a greater volume, resulting in lighter, more tender brownies.
  • Use a high-quality Nutella for the best flavor since it’s the main ingredient; cheaper alternatives may not melt as well or taste as chocolatey.
  • For the gluten-free flour, spoon it into the measuring cup and level it off with a knife for precision; too much flour can make the brownies dry.
  • Mix your batter gently to avoid overworking the flour, which can make the brownies tough instead of tender.
  • Grease your pan thoroughly or line it with parchment paper to ensure your brownies lift out easily without sticking.
  • Check doneness with a toothpick; it should come out with a few moist crumbs for fudgy brownies, not completely clean.
  • Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack to set properly, preventing them from falling apart when cutting.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the brownies, cleaning it between slices to get clean, neat squares.

🥥Variations

  • Vegan Twist – Swap out the eggs for a plant-based egg replacer or flax eggs and use a vegan chocolate hazelnut spread to make these brownies vegan-friendly.
  • With Coconut and Almond Flour: For a Nutella brownie with a blend of coconut and almond flour, mix Nutella and eggs as directed, then stir in a tablespoon of coconut flour and three tablespoons of almond flour for structure and a nutty flavor. Bake as usual, but keep an eye on the texture, as these flours can change the baking time slightly.
  • Keto Nutella Brownies: Use a low carb chocolate hazelnut spread (like ChocZero hazelnut spread) and follow the directions for making with coconut and almond flour. 
  • Cake Brownies – If you prefer a cakey texture, add a 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to the mix, which will give the brownies a lighter, more aerated structure.
  • Chopped Chocolate Chunks – Fold in a handful of chocolate chunks before baking to create pockets of melted chocolate throughout the brownies for an extra indulgent treat.
  • Add Nuts – Stir in chopped hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, or almonds for added crunch and a nuttier flavor that complements the Nutella.
  • Coffee Flavor – Add a teaspoon of instant espresso powder to the batter to enhance the chocolate flavor and add a subtle coffee note.
  • Salted Top – Sprinkle a little flaky sea salt on top before baking to balance the sweetness and add a trendy gourmet touch.
  • Marshmallow Swirl – Dollop marshmallow fluff on top of the batter and use a toothpick to swirl it in for a gooey, marshmallow variation.
  • Nutella mug brownie: To make a single-serve brownie, mix a couple of tablespoons of Nutella with an egg and a tablespoon of gluten-free flour directly into a greased mug until a thick batter forms. Microwave it on high for around 60-90 seconds until it’s risen and firm to the touch.

🧊Storing & Freezing

Storing: Keep your brownies in an airtight container at room temperature, where they’ll stay fresh and fudgy for up to 4 days. Avoid refrigerating as it can dry them out and harden their texture. 

Freezing: If you want to freeze them, wrap the entire batch tightly in plastic wrap and then again in aluminum foil to prevent freezer burn. They’ll keep well for up to 4 months. When you’re ready to enjoy, thaw them overnight at room temperature for best results.

FAQ

Can I make these brownies with regular flour if I’m not gluten-free?

Yes, you can use regular all-purpose flour in a 1:1 substitution for gluten-free flour if gluten isn’t a concern for you. The texture and taste will remain deliciously consistent.

What can I do if I don’t have a loaf pan?

No problem. You can use an 8×8 inch square pan; just keep in mind that the brownies will be thinner and may require less baking time and will be thinner and less fudgy.
