There are some flavour pairs that just go together: apple + cinnamon, lemon + almond (like in our lemon almond cheesecake), white chocolate + pecans (like in our white chocolate pecan cookies)...
One of our absolute favorites? Chocolate and hazelnuts! Nuttiness of hazelnuts is ideal paired with biterness of dark chocolate, like in our fudgy hazelnut brownies.

Let's check what we need for our delicious brownies and how to make them!
These brownies should be super chocolatey so you need to use quality dark chocolate with high percentage of cocoa solids - preferably higher than 55%. Use chocolate bars and chop in into big chunks so it melts easily and quickly.
In addition, we added a few tablespoons or rich dark cocoa powder which enchance this rich chocolate flavour and gives dark colour to the brownies.
This recipe features WHOLE GRAIN SPELT FLOUR, but white spelt flour as well as plain flour will works too. Toasted hazelnuts are always a great addition to any chocolate dessert, so these brownies are not exception.
We added toasted chopped hazelnuts to give extra touch and some crunchiness to these fudgy brownies.
For making these delicious brownies you will need a few mixing bowls, a balloon whisk, a silicon spatula and a square baking pan. The recipe starts with toasting hazelnuts in the oven until lightly brown and fragrant. Blitz them in the food processor until finely chopped.
Now, continue with the whipping up the batter for these rich chocolate brownies:
Pour the batter into square baking pan and bake for 20 minutes. This batter is ideal for 20x20cm square baking pan, you will get 9 large brownies.
If you want to double the recipe, bake it in the larger baking pan and increase the baking time for about 5 minutes, maybe more. You can also bake this batter in a round baking pan.
EXTRA BAKING TIP: It is important to keep an eye on the brownies while baking. When the edges are set, the top is shiny and the center is still a little jiggly, take them from the oven. The brownies will set and firm up while cooling in the pan.
