Three Ingredients Nutella Brownies

Lately I’ve been trying to include my toddler in my cooking and baking adventures. I try and do this about once a week and since he doesn’t go to full school yet, he’s rather free in the early evenings after his nap. 

So I’m regularly on the hunt for simple and easy recipes that the little one can manage without much assistance. I help with measuring the ingredients, occasionally pouring the ingredients into the big bowl and putting the batter or mixture into the oven. And like all mothers, I give lots of instructions and reminders during the process. 

Anyway, this recipe is not mine so credit goes to Kirbie Cravings and here’s the link http://kirbiecravings.com/2013/02/easiest-3-ingredient-nutella-brownies.html

 Essentially, this is all it requires. 

  1. Half a cup of plain flour
  2. One and a quarter cup of Nutella (which works out to the 350g jar)
  3. 2 eggs

Preheat the oven at 180°C, mix all the ingredients together and bake for 15 minutes. The toothpick should come out dry when it’s cooked. These brownies don’t come out really thick plus I cut them into bite sized pieces so they were really easy for little hands to handle. 

The best part is that it took less than half an hour from start to end. Of course with a toddler, it may take a little longer but it’s long enough to sustain his interest. 

They were so delicious I must admit I popped way too many pieces in my mouth. Will I be making these again, you bet!

Library Finds #7: The Little Zebra Who Lost His Stripes by Jedda Robaard

This is a simple story of a zebra who lost his stripes and went looking for it in all sorts of places. It’s also a lift up the flap kind of book as the reader searches where the stripes could be. The stripes were eventually found when…. the zebra took a bath! Ha!

I accompanied the book with a simple craft. Basically R had to paste the stripes of the zebra onto the picture I drew and that was that. Easy enough for a toddler to handle and minimal mess.
