Nutella Walnut Brownies

Once a while or so, something or other issue crops up in our day to day life for which we hardly have any control. Recently, I discovered that my passport validity got expired few months back but I noticed it last month. So, I thought for renewal as there is a Passport Seva Online service, it would be an easy process. However, after uploading of all the information in their portal, I had to wait for two weeks to fix and online appointment. No sooner do I log in at 6:00PM , all the Interview Slots get over and the message states that please try again tomorrow at same time. So after a lot of persistence , I got an appointment for today. So carrying these brownie to munch at the office if it gets delayed over at the passport office. Wish me luck friends ....

1/2 cup All purpose flour
1/3 cup Cocoa powder
1 cup Nutella
3/4 Sugar
5 Tbsp Butter(room temperature)
2 Eggs
2 Bananas
1tsp Vanilla essence
3/4 cup Walnuts
1/2 tsp Baking powder
Pinch of salt

Pre-heat the Oven to 350 Degrees. Line 8" square pan a butter paper with an overhang from all sides.

 In a bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt until thoroughly combined. Mash bananas with a fork and keep aside. Using an electric mixer cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy (it takes 3-4 minutes). Add eggs, blending fully, one at a time. Add in vanilla essence, nutella and mix with a wooden spatula. Add dry flours and gradually to the butter mixture and combine well. 

Mix in the dusted walnuts, scrape the batter into the pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 20-25 minutes (depending upon you Oven temperature). you can insert a toothpick in the center to check, if it comes out with few crumbs(not completely clean) and moist then it is ready. When the brownies are cool, unmold slice them into squares. I frosted them with melted chocolate for extra shine on top. Serve warm and keep the rest in an air tight container.


  • Store properly the brownies as they tend to dry out easily. Keep a small pieces of bread in the air tight   container to keep the brownies soft. Read and followed the same.
  • Make sure everything is room temperature before you start ahead.
