Inspired by any recipe using minimal ingredients, I was massively intrigued by the 2-ingredient Nutella Brownies I saw online: Nutella + Eggs.
We don’t eat Nutella, so I figured I’d make my own version, requiring 3 ingredients instead.
- Organic peanut butter
- Organic chocolate bar
I didn’t do much in the way of measuring other than an estimate of about a cup total between the peanut butter and chocolate (warmed on stove to make liquid-ish) plus 4 eggs.
The eggs get the crap beaten out of them to increase their volume and supposedly make less egg-tasting but… more on that in a bit.
Mix the warmed chocolate mixture with the eggs and bake in a greased baking dish for about 20 minutes (350 degrees or thereabouts).
It looks impressive.
It tastes less so.
In spite of beating my eggs a lot, I thought it tasted like chocolate peanut butter eggs instead of brownies.
That doesn’t mean it’s bad… just need to create expectations.
It needed to be sweeter so we drizzled maple syrup on one serving and tried another with strawberry jelly. (My chocolate bar was the organic dark chocolate from Trader Joe’s with pecans and raisins in the light blue wrapper – so not super dark chocolate.)
Sort of tasty (and interesting, to be sure). Just not brownies.
Kamea and Greg enjoyed them well enough that’d I’d probably make again. Maybe… now that I know what to expect.
A fun experiment to be sure. 🙌🏼
