I was in the mood for brownies but didn’t want them to be too rich. These came out great!

Time: 30 minutes               Serves: 8

Ingredients


  • 3/4 cup AP or brown rice flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp 0% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts – peeled *See note
  • (1 1/2 cup water, 3 tbsp baking soda)

How to make it


  • *Note: To easily remove peels from hazelnuts, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil on the stovetop. Add baking soda and hazelnuts. Boil for 3 minutes then remove from heat and run under cold water, using your fingertips to remove loose skins.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a 9-inch round or 8-inch square glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Sift dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix to combine.
  • Combine wet ingredients in a separate mixing bowl. Slowly mix dry ingredients into wet and mix just until incorporated. At this point you can fold in the nuts or reserve them to drop into the top as I did.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Bake on middle rack of oven for 22-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
