• I might be the very last person to get obsessed with Nutella, but it has officially happened. I swore t never try it, simply because of how crazy people were about it. But, alas, someone bought me a small jar and now I am just like everyone else in my Nutella obsession. I have been spreading it on toast, baking it into cookies, swirling it into pancakes and you name it.

    My latest creation was a brownie. You read that right, a Nutella brownie. Not a swirled brownie. Instead a straight up Nutella brownie. Stop licking the computer screen. Here is what you need.

    1 cup of Nutella
    2/3 cups flour
    2 room temperature eggs
    Pinch of salt

    Mix everything together until it comes into a batter texture. Try your best to not eat the entire bowl. I know it will be hard. I do.
    Pour it into a lightly greased brownie sized baking pan. (I used an 8×8 pan).

    Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes or until the brownies are set.

    For an extra dose of yum, before baking, add dollops of your favorite peanut butter on top of the batter. The peanut butter will melt during cooking and swirl in. We all know that chocolate and peanut butter is amazing.

    If you would rather try to go a bit healthier, use whole wheat flour and mix in a few tablespoons of flax meal. Sprinkle with unsalted peanuts for a nice crunch.
