Nutella Brownie Bites

Nutella Brownie Bites recipe

Happy Friday, everyone!  I made you a treat.

These little bite sized treats are so easy to make.  In fact, I could not believe how little effort I had to put into making them, particularly since they taste amazing and look exactly like those store-bought bite sized brownies.  These brownie bites were also ready in under 20 minutes.

You may also be surprised to know that these Nutella Brownie Bites only really have 3 ingredients.  Pretty wild.  At first, I was totally skeptical that this recipe would work, but the bites were perfectly chocolatey and sweetened and the right texture for brownies.  I decided to add a little bit of espresso powder to my recipe, because espresso powder tends to enhance the chocolate flavor, but you can skip that step if you don't have any on hand.

Nutella Brownie Bites

1 cup Nutella
2 eggs
10 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
Hazelnuts for topping

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.

Stir together Nutella, eggs, flour, and espresso powder (if you are using it) until the batter is smooth and all ingredients are incorporated.

Scoop brownie batter into the muffin tin, almost filling each hole.  Top with crushed hazelnuts.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350°F.

Banana Nutella Muffins

healthy banana nutella muffin recipe

Sometimes I struggle with wanting to eat things that are really bad for me, but knowing that I should be eating things that are good for me.  These Banana Nutella Muffins are my attempt at a compromise.  A little bit of sinful goodness, but toned down with less butter and sugar than usual.  I was trying so hard to be good - substituting unsweetened apple sauce for half of the butter, cutting out most of the sugar, and using whole wheat flour.  I made the mistake of telling N that though.  So what did he do? He did the very naughty thing of adding a splash of oil and some brown sugar to the batter between baking the batches.  Boys will be boys I guess.  The muffins were good both ways, but I preferred my less sweet version.

Banana Nutella Muffins

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
3-4 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup light sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 cup Nutella

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Using an electric mixer, cream together apple sauce, sugar, and butter on medium speed until well blended, about 1 minute.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addtion.  Add mashed bananas, sour cream, and vanilla.  Beat on low speed until blended, about 30 seconds. With a wooden spoon, stir in flour baking soda, salt, and cinnamon just until moistened and the flour has disappeared.  Finally, swirl in the Nutella.  Scoop batter into lined muffin tins.

Bake 22-24 minutes, until lightly browned and until the muffin springs back when gently pressed on top. Cool 10 minutes before removing to wire rack.  Makes 24 muffins.
