Oh chocolate how I love thee! Add hazelnuts into the mix, turn it all into a brownie, and gluten free one at that, and it’s a ménage à trois no one can resist. This is a very quick and simple one bowl recipe.
Preheat your oven to 325F and butter an 8×8 pan.
Gluten Free Hazelnut Brownies (serves 8)
- 5 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 8 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt (optional)
- 1/3 cup all purpose GLUTEN FREE flour
- 1 cup unsalted and roasted hazelnuts, chopped
In a large microwave safe bowl melt the butter and chocolate chips(microwave for approx. 40 seconds and stir.) Let mixture cool for about 5 minutes. Add the sugar and whisk, mixture will be grainy. Add eggs one at a time and whisk well after each egg. Add vanilla extract, salt and flour. Whisk until well incorporated. Fold in the chopped hazelnuts. Pour mixture into the pan, top with whole hazelnuts if you please and bake for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
