4-Ingredient Nutella Brownie Bites

Today, I’m participating in a fun blogger event (for the last time!*) — the Secret Recipe Club. How does it work? Every blogger is secretly assigned another blog + chooses a recipe from that blog to make. On reveal day (today!), all of our posts go up at the same time, + everyone gets to see who was assigned to their blog, which recipe they chose, + how it turned out. Fun, huh?

This month I was assigned My Wholefood Family, a wonderful blog featuring real, whole food-based family-friendly meals, snacks, and sweets. After reading through tons of her amazing recipes, I decided to try out her Nutella Brownie Bites, and they turned out amazing! My two-year-old loves Nutella (don’t we all?), so she was my inspiration for making them, but in the end, the whole family loved them equally. She enjoyed hers as-is, still slightly warm from the oven (pictured below!), while we enjoyed ours “dressed up” – dusted with confectioner’s sugar, and topped with fresh strawberry secured in place with a teeny dollop of Nutella. Including both prep and baking time, they took less than 30 minutes total – you cannot beat that, especially for something so crazy delicious!!

Thank you to Susan for introducing me to these scrumptious lil’ Nutella brownies + to the Secret Recipe Club for connecting me, yet again, with fantastic bloggers + amazing recipes! For all my previous Secret Recipe Club recipes, click here – there are TONS of awesome ones!

*I have been a Secret Recipe Club member since 2011, and I have posted over 30 recipes as part of the group. It has been a joy to be part of the SRC, and I have made countless blogging friends and connections through it. But, after nearly 5 years with the group, I’m stepping down. You see, life got really busy in the last 5 years. In that time, I got married, had a baby, and significantly increased my work responsibilities. I’m finding less time to blog, and I don’t want to hold up a spot in the SRC (there’s a waiting list to join), if I’m not fully engaged in it. So, this is my last post with the Secret Recipe Club. In related news, I will also be blogging less overall. Instead of my usual one-post-a-week, I will likely post once or twice each month. This blog isn’t going anywhere, and I’ll still be here, cooking and baking, but I’m going to use that saved time to focus more fully on my family, my friends, and my job.*

4-Ingredient Nutella Brownie Bites

makes 12, adapted from My Wholefood Family


1 cup Nutella
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a regular (not a mini) 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners, and lightly spray the paper liners with canola oil spray (this makes for easier/cleaner removal of the brownies from the muffin cups).

In a medium bowl, mix together the Nutella, eggs, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add in the flour and mix until just combined. Divide evenly between the 12 muffin cups (they will only be about half full).

Bake for 12 minutes, until they are set on top – they will still be delightfully fudgy in the middle. Let cool for 10 minutes in the muffin tin, and then transfer individual brownie cups to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Serve warm or at room temperature, as is, or topped with ice cream, whipped cream, strawberries, or the topping of your choice.

These brownies look and sound fantastic!

I am sorry to see you leave the Secret Society, but I certainly understand the time constraints. It all sounds so simple – just one recipe and a post every now and again, but somehow it all gets to be quite overwhelming, and something has to give.

You have certainly had a great run with the group, and this is a terrific last act. These Bites look perfect. I hope all is well with you and yours!

7 Karen @ Karen's Kitchen Stories February 22, 2016 at 2:07 pm

Awww! So sorry to see you go and I’m so glad I had you on your last hurrah with SRC! Totally get why though. This recipe looks amazing, and your daughter is adorable!

8 Tara February 22, 2016 at 3:16 pm

So sorry to see you go. Good luck with everything! These brownie bites look absolutely delicious. Beautiful presentation.

We will certainly miss you and wish you the very best. My mantra is life before blogging. Enjoy that extra time with that adorable little Angel.

10 Emily @ Life on Food February 23, 2016 at 6:58 am

We will miss you. I enjoyed your posts each month. These brownies look divine and are a great final pick! Happy Reveal Day!!

Sad to see you go, and I hope you continue blogging as often as life allows you to, but you know, life changes, priorities must change too…

you do have a busy and wonderful life! ENJOY!

I’m happy to hear you’ll still be blogging, even though it won’t be as often. Your daughter gets cuter every day!

These brownie bites sound easy to make and great to eat. I can certainly understand your wanting to spend more time with family especially when you have little ones. We will enjoy your posts whenever they are out in the blogworld.

I always have these ingredients in so these are ideal for me!

15 Jess March 22, 2016 at 2:37 pm

Oh my gosh, I’m obsessed with nutella. I just made nutella banana nut bread, but my favorite recipe is to make nutella hot chocolate!

16 Karen (Back Road Journal) September 5, 2016 at 10:10 am

When you family includes such a precious little girl as yours, I can certainly see why you would like to devote more time to them. Thank you for sharing this easy and delicious recipe with us, the bites sound like the perfect ending to a meal…especially when made even nicer with the sliced strawberry topping.

I love nutella, this is the best nutella recipe ever!

18 Brian Dwyre December 13, 2016 at 5:46 am

That’s a fantastic recipe and your little girl sure was having a great time devouring them. I can see she loves them! I’m suggesting this Kidioke because I’m sure she will love this sing-along playbook and it’ll make a wonderful gift for her as well.
