Hazelnut flour is a versatile, nutrient-dense product made from ground hazelnuts. It can be used as a substitute for wheat flour in baking or added to smoothies and other recipes for a nutty flavor and added nutrition. Hazelnut flour is a good source of dietary fiber and contains a range of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, iron, zinc, and B vitamins. It is also a good source of healthy fats, including monounsaturated fats, which can help lower cholesterol. Hazelnut flour is gluten-free. It is also lower in carbohydrates than other flours, making it a good option for those with diabetes or on low-carb diets.

This gluten-free brownie recipe is easy to make and delicious to eat. The combination of ground hazelnuts or almond meal, arrowroot starch, and chocolate creates a fudgy, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Plus, the brownies are so easy to make that you can whip them up in no time.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/3 cup arrowroot starch

  • 3/4 cup toasted ground hazelnuts (shelled and deskinned) or blanched almond meal

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • Start with preheating an oven to 350°F (180°C). Meanwhile, line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving enough paper overhang on the sides for lifting the brownies out after baking.
  • In a large heat-proof bowl, place chocolate and butter. Heat in the microwave in 20-second intervals while stirring in between each interval. Repeat until melted (or set it over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally).
  • Add sugar and mix until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, and whisk until combined.
  • Add nuts, cornstarch, and salt and fold, using a rubber spatula, just until combined. Do not overmix.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the edges are set, but the center is still very soft. Be careful not to overbake. A toothpick inserted into the middle of the brownie pan should come out with moist crumbs, not dry.
  • Transfer the pan to a wire rack, and let it cool completely. Refrigerate until completely set for easy cutting, at least 4 hours.
  • Lift brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper and cut them into 16 squares. You can store brownies in the fridge for up to 6 days. To preserve their freshness, use an airtight container.
