Here’s a delicious and healthy recipe that’s unbelievably satisfying and made using the most amazing chocolate hazelnut spread I have ever had in my life.  Nuts ‘N More just released this Healthy Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and I think I’m in love–I might even change my blog name to Hazelnut Plus Chocolate.

 

 

 

Who says ice cream and Netflix is the best way to spend a Friday night? Oh right, I did just a few days ago. Well things have changed since making these brownies. My new Friday night (as of tonight) consists of watching Friends reruns and snacking on these chocolate hazelnut delights! I just can’t get enough.

Healthy Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie Bars {Vegan, Gluten-Free & Paleo)

This healthy chocolate hazelnut brownie bar recipe is so delicious you can't just have one! Vegan, Gluten-free and paleo friendly!

Ingredients

    Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies
  • 1/2 c almond flour, finely ground
  • 1/2 c brown rice flour or oat flour
  • 32g chocolate protein powder, I used PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp special dark unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cocoa hazelnut spread Nuts 'N More
  • 3 tbsp chia seed oil or coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water
  • 1/4 c hazelnuts, chopped
    Chocolate Ganache
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup or agave
  • 2 tbsp coconut oi, melted
  • 1 tbsp almond milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and prepare a loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the flax and water into a small bowl and stir until combined and set aside for 5 minutes to set.
  3. Place all dry brownie ingredients into a bowl and stir until combined. Add in remaining ingredients and beat until a dough forms. At this point I placed the ingredients into my mixer and used a paddle attachment to mix until a dough formed.
  4. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 11-12 minutes--don't over bake. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  5. While the brownies are cooling, place all ganache ingredients into a microwave safe bowl and cook on high in 5 second increments, stirring in between until smooth.
  6. Pour chocolate over brownies and top with more chopped hazelnuts and cocao nibs if desired.
  7. Place the brownies into the freezer for 1 hour before cutting into bars and serving.

      Yes, you can but the final product may not be as dense. Hope this helps 🙂
