Three Ingredient Fudgy Hazelnut Brownies + shoulder workout

Today I read a recipe from a blog, forgive me for not remembering where I read it, and if you to have seen it I urge you to leave a note in the comments with it.

So, I had an overwhelming urge to try these but put my own spin on it. This recipe was only 2 ingredient brownies, but I decided I would add another to make them a little more cakey and make them more my own.

They smell amazing, and Sean was my taste tester who has informed my the texture isn’t quiet cake but is moist like a brownie, so this to me is a win. The flavour? Well, read the ingredients, you can’t really go to wrong!

1c Nutella

4 whole eggs

1/2c almond meal – my added ingredient

set your oven to 180degree celsius. line a standard loaf pan and set aside. Combine all your ingredients into a bowl and whisk till well combined. Pour into your pan and place straight into the oven. Mine took 20mins to cook, bake until a skewer comes out clean.

Slice once cooked – would be delicious with a scoop of ice-cream on top whilst warm! You can try my vanilla ice-cream recipe here if you like;

Pasta of choice – I used mini shells

olive oil

1 jar of sun-dried tomato pesto sauce

1/2c greek yogurt or natural yogurt or sour cream

first start boiling your water for your pasta and get your pan on for your bacon. Cook your bacon while your water boiled. Once water is boiling add your pasta. Once your bacon is cooked add your chicken to the pan and toss to combine. Once the pasta is cooked drain and add to your chicken and bacon. toss. add your pesto sauce and greek yogurt and stir well to incorporate. Serve with parmesan!  So quick and easy!
