I know, I know… You’re thinking to yourself… what in the heck are Blondies doing on a Healthy Living Blog?
Well my friends… Nutella Blondies make perfect sense on this blog. I promise if you eat one it won’t make your heinie big. Now, if you eat four, or seven… well, that’s a whole other issue.
I randomly purchased some Nutella with the intention of baking with it. If you’re like me… you can eat Nutella by the spoonful.
My original plan was to make Nutella Brownies, but I just couldn’t find a recipe I liked. After scouring the internet for hours, I found this recipe by Kevin & Amanda. It was simple and looked delicious!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
First thing you want to do is combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk to combine and set aside.
Next, you want to melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Once the butter is melted, add both sugars in and stir until dissolved.
Would you get grossed out if I told you I tasted this? It was good… trust me.
This butter mixture needs to cool for about 10 minutes, so you can use this time to be productive and do things like go wash your hair, tweeze your eyebrows, paint your fingernails, or go read the latest issue of People Magazine 😉
Mix the eggs & vanilla together. Slowly pour in the butter/sugar mixture. Mix until nice and creamy. Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix just until combined. Be sure the scrape down the sides so you don’t miss any of that buttery goodness.
Pour the mixture into an 8×8″ pan thats been sprayed with cooking spray. Next, you want to drop about 6 huge blobs of Nutella onto the batter.
To make the swirls, use a blunt knife and make an “S” shape with the Nutella. You can play around with it and make whatever designs you want 🙂 Just be sure to drag the Nutella to the edges that way it can bake evenly.
Bake in an oven that’s been preheated to 350 degrees. If your using a glass pan (like I did) it took about 40 minutes to bake. For a metal pan it should take between 25-30 minutes. The key is to have a toothpick come out clean with some nice goo on it 🙂
Then it looks like this…. Droool…………………….
I highly suggest you cut them in small squares. They are so rich that really all you need is just one… or two….
Are you on a sugar high yet?

I love Nutella. Love love love. I’ve never made blondies but I did make Nutella brownies once. These look so yummy!
That’s it. I’m making these on Sunday, so I can have one (or two) and bring the rest to work on Monday 🙂
We will be putting the house back together and maybe heading up north to Prescott for a hike and a picnic. We need to get out of the 107 degree heat!
mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. i need these…no, really, NEED 🙂 great job girl, they look fabulous!
Estela, These look so PRETTY! I love the swirl of nutella. I am a total nutella lover, but hardly ever buy it bc in this house it tends to get eatin off spoons before I get a chance to do anything with it… You know, like put it on toast 😉
I don’t bake very often, but I think I just may have to make some of these for the dinner party we’re going to at my sister in laws tonight.
Thanks for the recipe! -m
I love baking pretty things! These are truly gorgeous goods!
YES please!!! I love how those blobs turn into beautiful swirls!
Oooo those look perfect for the potluck I’m having a work! I have a jar of nutella! Yes!
I can’t believe it but I’ve never had nutella..but I think that’s probably for the best because I KNOW i would love it. And i’m certainly not sure if my first introduction should be in baked goods because it would be hooked…guaranteed! haha
These look amazing 🙂
Those look awesome, we always have nutella in the house. I add some to my greek yogurt for a treat and sometime put some granola in too – love love love 🙂
