  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp Dutch-process cocoa powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 1/3 cup Nutella divided, room temperature (400g)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Line the bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, letting the paper hang over the sides. Set aside.
  • In a bowl combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, combine eggs, 1 cup Nutella, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat for about 2 minutes until smooth.
  • With the mixer running on low speed, add the flour mixture alternating with the melted butter. Stir in 2/3 of the chopped hazelnuts.
  • Spread batter into the pan, then drop remaining Nutella by the tablespoon onto the batter and use a knife to swirl it into the batter. Sprinkle remaining hazelnuts over the brownies and slightly press them into the batter.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with only a few moist crumbs attached.
  • Set baking pan on a cooling rack and let brownies cool in the pan to room temperature. Then lift out the brownies using the parchment paper and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into squares.
