No Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies

A firm chewy brownie base with a simple protein boost topped with a gooey fudgy ganache layer…these are positively dreamy!

I think my palate has become so accustomed to no bake brownies I find it hard accept the bake variety. Though I still always revert back to my favourite recipe when a baked brownie is called for.

Hazelnut and chocolate just go so well together, it’s a combination that is sure to win a lot of people over. These are super rich, so although I’ve suggested 8 servings, you could easily slice them into smaller bites of 10 or even 12. Delicious with a cup of coffee… you could totally add some coffee extract into the ganache or base or both if you’re a coffee lover (not to self).

As far as no bake recipes go this is one of the most simple. Two layers, a food processor and no super crazy ass long ingredient list. The perfect chocolate treat if you’re thinking ahead to Easter… I just might be!
