Flourless Nutella Brownies

I wasn’t sure what to call these. It’s a cross between a cake and brownie, but the dense texture and rich flavor make me lean towards calling them brownies. Though technically I’ve never eaten a flourless brownie. Also I baked them in a square pan and cut them into pieces that look like brownies. So brownies it is.

Anyhow, I was experimenting in the kitchen again with my jars of Nutella and I came up with this. The Nutella flavor is intense. The hazelnut flavor is upped with the addition of some ground hazelnut flour.  So if you love hazelnut and chocolate, this dessert is a must try.

As with many flourless desserts, the batter was easy to whip up. It bakes for about 25 minutes and then it’s done. The dessert is quite rich and decadent. Just a little goes a long way.
