Despite being made from only three simple ingredients, these Easy 3 Ingredient Nutella Brownies are incredibly delicious!

These brownies are thick and fudgy, loaded with Nutella flavour, and are super quick and easy to throw together.

Because Nutella is basically full of sugar, and we are using a lot of it here, these brownies still develop their desired signature crinkly top.

If you love fudgy brownies and Nutella, you are gonna fall in love with this easy brownie recipe. It is hard to stop at just one brownie – trust me.

Ingredients you’ll need

Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these brownies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.

  • Nutella: Or any other hazelnut chocolate spread. If your chocolate spread is quite thick, microwave to a runny state (about 30 seconds).
  • Large eggs: You’ll want 2 large eggs, plus 1 large egg yolk – at room temperature.
  • Plain/all-purpose flour: Using only a small amount of flour is what helps create super fudgy brownies.
  • Salt: Optional, but helps balance out the sweetness.
  • Optional add-ins: 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, or 1/2 cup of chopped nuts. OR try a combination of both!

How to make Easy 3 Ingredient Nutella Brownies

To make these brownies, simply start by whisking together the Nutella and eggs until smooth and combined.

Add the flour and salt, and fold in until combined.

Pour the batter into an 8×8-inch square baking pan lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the centre is no longer jiggly and a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs.

Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into squares.

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

Tips & tricks for this recipe

Here are a few tips and tricks for making these brownies.

  • Microwaving the Nutella until warm and runny will help make the combining of ingredients quicker and easier.
  • The extra egg yolk makes for extra chewy and fudgy brownies – Yes please!
  • Using such a small amount of flour also contributes to the fudginess of these brownies.
  • Salt is optional and totally not necessary, but it can balance out the sweetness of these brownies. I have a big sweet tooth, so I mostly don’t add it unless I’m making them to share out to family and friends.
  • To speed up the cooling time, place the pan of brownies in the freezer for 1 hour, then slice and serve.

I had a go at making these, but I had to do it twice to get the consistency right. To begin with, I’ve got a fan oven so I adjusted the temperature from 180 down to 160. I’ve also only got a 9” tin so my mixture would be thinner and probably need less time. I also used medium eggs as it’s all I had, but those didn’t seem to affect anything.

The first attempt I cooked the mixture for 20 mins, this was too long. The resulting brownies were more like cake and didn’t have the usual gooey texture.

The second attempt I did everything the same except I checked after 10 mins. It was super gooey and not cooked enough, there was also quite a big bubble (which I popped haha). I put it back in for another 4 minutes then took it out. I’ve left them cooling in the tin and I’m pretty sure these will be super gooey!

Yeah these were spot on! I could probably have got away with about 12-13 minutes if I wanted them REALLY gooey but I’m happy with the result. Thanks!

These were sooo good and easy to make! Fudgy, chewy and rich. We loved them and this will be my go-to brownie recipe from now on!! Just make sure the Nutella is heated up enough. Our batter was quite hard by the time we poured it in the pan, but they still turned out great.

Hi Marsha, they look amazing! I'd like to try adding protein powder to it for a pre or post work out treat. What flour to protein powder ratio would you recommend?

I was so excited to try these, but I’m not sure where I went wrong! Had them in for 20 min and they came out super dry...like a cake...I’m so sad :(
