Oats Hazelnut Brownie

I continued my quest of cleaning up the kitchen pantry this week and found these two ingredients that have been awaiting my attention – Quick oats and hazelnuts. I remember buying quick oats to make energy bars but never got around to doing that and the hazelnuts were bought with the intention of turning them into Hazelnut butter but by the time I was ready to make the second batch of Hazelnut butter, my daughter had moved on to Peanut butter. So here I was wondering what I could do with both these ingredients and I vaguely recollected reading a recipe for Almond Butter-Quinoa Blondies using Quinoa flour. That was it, I decided to replace the Quinoa flour with Oat flour and almond butter with hazelnut butter and make some brownies. Sounds like a disaster of a recipe, right? At least it did to me. But I was wrong, so wrong! The Oats -Hazelnut butter brownies turned out to be AMAZING! It was so soft and spongy and my daughters LOVED it. Pardon my caps but I am still blown over on how wonderful they turned out to be. Go ahead and try it out and let me know how they were.

Note: To turn quick oats into oat flour, pulse the oats until they are ground into a powder-like consistency.

  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¾ cup hazelnut butter or store-bought Nutella
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper and allow it to slightly overhang at the opposite ends. Coat the paper with cooking spray.
  • In a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat yogurt,oil and hazelnut butter until creamy. Add in eggs and brown sugar and beat them until combined.
