Experiments are a part of a science student and so is with me. Every time I think of baking something, the first thing I think of is experimenting something new. I believe in eggless baking, but with this recipe, I have broken rules.
In this recipe, I have used eggs to include protein and also to add the fluffiness in these brownies. Don’t worry, Nutella will mask the smell of eggs.

How to make Brownies with Nutella
In a bowl, take butter, semisweet chocolate, and coffee powder. Everything should be at room temperature.
PS: Use Conversion Table to convert cups into grams and vice versa
Place a pan half filled with water on the gas stove and start heating it. Now place the bowl with chocolate, butter, and coffee on this pan with water. This technique is known as a double boiler.
While working with chocolate, temperature plays an important role. Direct heating of chocolate on flame can seize the chocolate. So melt all these on double boiler to get a smooth and lumps free solution.
Once done, let the solution come to the room temperature.
In a large mixing bowl, take two large eggs. With whisker, whisk these to get soft peaks. Add sugar and whisk again to dissolve the sugar completely.
Once sugar is dissolved, add prepared chocolate-butter solution and cocoa powder to the egg-sugar mixture and gently fold. Do not whisk as it can make the air skip.
Sieve flour, baking powder and salt altogether. Add these dry ingredients to wet ingredients and gently fold using cut & fold method to keep the air intact. Do not over mix the batter. Add chopped almonds to the batter.
Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 160° C.
Take an 8×8 inch baking tin and line it with parchment paper. Pour the batter into it. Tap the tin on the counter.
Sprinkle chopped almonds on top. Bake it in a preheated oven at 160° C for 20 minutes. Do not bake the brownies more than 20 minutes if you want to have gooey brownies. Toothpick test never works in gooey brownies.
After 20 minutes, take the tin out from the Oven. Drizzle Nutella on it when it’s still warm. De-mould the brownies. Cut these into pieces.
Your whole wheat Almond Nutella brownies are ready to serve. These taste best when served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
