Macadamia Nutella Brownies

I simply couldn’t find anymore excuses not to bake such easy fuss free 3-ingredient brownies.  Oh! Found a pack of macadamia nuts in my pantry ! To provide a balance to the sweetness and chocolaty of these fudgy crunchy macadamia nuts brownies, I sprinkled a little of flaky sea salt.  Taste really amazing.  

Recipe adapted from here with slight adjustments made.

Macadamia Nutella Brownies
325g Nutella
2 large eggs + 1 large egg yolk, room temperature (size of my egg is 60g each with shell)
62g all-purpose plain flour
1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt
80g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped

Preheat the oven to 180ºC.  Position the rack in the middle. The temperature of the oven may vary, do adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven.

Line an 8 x 8 inch square pan with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the Nutella and eggs until smooth and combined.

Add the flour and mixed until combined.  Fold in the macadamia nuts.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle the flaky sea salt.

Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a little batter and a few moist clumps clinging to it.  Do not over bake as overbaking will create a dry brownie.

Remove the pan from oven and let cool on a wire rack before cutting into squares.

Served warm for brekkie with a glass of cold milk.
Happy baking!
