These are basically a healthier version of Nutella brownies… with just 5 ingredients!  I used Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter which has less than HALF the sugar of regular Nutella.  (9g vs. 21g per serving – WOW!)  I also used Kodiak Cakes dark chocolate flavor to add more protein to this recipe.  I love Kodiak Cakes because you can really bake anything with their mixes, not only pancakes and waffles.  Top these with more melty chocolate hazelnut butter and they’re a DREAM!


RECIPE:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter
  • 1 cup dark chocolate Kodiak Cakes mix
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small sauce pan, melt butter and hazelnut butter together
  • Once smooth, add brown sugar and mix
  • Once sugar is dissolved, pour into a larger bowl
  • Add almond milk and whisk until smooth
  • Add dark chocolate Kodiak Cakes to wet ingredients in about 3 increments, whisking after each addition until JUST combined – try to avoid over mixing
  • Grease a brownie pan with non-stick spray and pour mix into it
  • Bake for about 15 minutes – I under-baked these so they would be super gooey, and this recipe has no egg so you don’t have to worry about eating raw eggs!
  • Let cool, or don’t
  • ENJOY!
