Almond Nutella Brownie Bites

Almond Nutella Brownie Bites

The batter for these Nutella Almond brownie bites can be easily turned into Nutella sandwich cookies but the most remarkable detail about this recipe is how simple it is.  Of course I’m pretty struck by their deliciousness too.  It's hard to believe that using only five ingredients I was able to create not one but two decadent treats.  

I adapted this recipe from one that originally included peanut butter instead of the hazelnut spread.  I was able to leave out the extra sugar in the recipe since Nutella itself is a lot sweeter than peanut butter.  I also used lightly salted almonds on top to reflect the salt from the peanut butter in my original recipe.  I couldn’t have asked for a better result.    

Ingredients list
  •          1 cup nutella
  •          2 eggs
  •          ½ cup gluten free Bisquick
  •          2 tbs cocoa
  •          1 cup almonds, chopped

Video Tutorial: 

1.      Preheat the oven to 350°F or 175 °C and line 2 mini muffin tins with paper liners. 
2.      In a medium bowl whisk the Nutella and eggs together until they are well combined.
3.      In a smaller bowl mix the cocoa and gluten free bisquick together.
4.      Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until the batter is thoroughly combined. 
5.      Divide the batter evenly among the 24 liners and top each brownie with chopped almonds.
6.      Bake them for 13 minutes.  Remove them from the muffin tins and allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving. 

Almond Nutella Sandwich Cookies 

To make the batter into brownie sandwich cookies instead of brownie bites, stir the chopped almonds into the brownie batter and chill for 15 minutes.  Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet that has been greased or lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 350°F or 175 °C for 13 minutes.  When the cookies are cooled sandwich a dollop of Nutella between the cookies.


  1. Is it possible to see the nutritional information for the Almond Nutella Brownie Bites?

  2. Hi Kermie, The best way to see the nutritional info for a recipe is to look at the labeling for each individual ingredient and divide it by the number of servings you have made.

    Now when you say nutritional information I'm not sure what you are specifically searching for. calories, carbs, sugar, protein etc. Assuming you're looking for the calories I can give you the calorie amounts of each ingredient before dividing it by the number of servings.

    1 cup of nutella .........1600 cal
    2 large eggs...............140 cal
    1/2 cup gf bisquick .......210 cal
    2 tbsp cocoa................40 cal

    Or 1990 in total for the brownie batter.

    If you're just making the brownies and not the cookies I'd estimate that you'd need about 2 oz (by weight) of chopped almonds or an additional 360 calories.

    So I'll add 1990 and 360 and divide it by 24 servings to give you a calorie estimate of 97 calories each.

    Hope this helps.

  3. This recipe looks great.
    We were looking for almonds and all we found was a bag of walnuts.
    So, walnuts it is.

    1. Truthfully Joe, while the almonds were good, I think the walnuts will be even better in these brownies. The texture of a walnut is much more buttery than an almond. I'm going to try them with walnuts myself next time.
