The only thing better than a warm batch of gooey brownies coming straight from the oven? A warm batch of gooey brownies that you made from scratch using only three ingredients! Boxed mixes won’t even hold up to this incredible recipe, and once you get a taste of how easy these homemade brownies are, you’ll never consider using a mix ever again. This recipe is just as quick, easy, and cost effective as your store-bought brownie mix, and it has that homemade taste that mixes just don’t have. What we’re trying to say is that this simple brownie recipe has it all – taste, ease, and that homemade flare.

Naturally, for this simple recipe to hold up against boxed mixes with their dozens of ingredients, it needs a staple that’s equally as amazing to keep everything together. And what delicious staple is better suited for the job than the one, the only, Nutella.

For a household of Nutella addicts, this recipe just got that much more delicious.

Because this recipe is so straight-forward, it’s also a major time saver! It only takes a minute to combine your three simple ingredients and 25 minutes to bake your homemade brownies – or less, if you like them a little softer in the center, like I do.

With only three ingredients and 25 minutes of your time, few recipes are this deliciously simple. And, the most important part of all, these brownies are fudge-filled, chocolaty pieces of heaven! Not only do they have that homemade taste that boxed brownies can’t pull off, they’re ten times gooier than any store-bought mix. All credit to the Nutella, we’d wager.

We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to give these a try after dinner tonight. These three-ingredient brownies are the perfect surprise dessert to whip up in a flash after your meal. Trust us, your family will thank you.

Three-Ingredient Brownies

  • 2 large eggs


  1. Combine all three ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Pour the batter into the pan and spread it out smoothly, so it’s even across the top.

  4. Allow the brownies to cool for a few minutes out of the oven before cutting. Top with powdered sugar, if desired.
