Hazelnut Coffee Brownies

A delicious and fudgy brownie recipe for fans of hazelnut coffee and chocolate.

Hazelnuts are nuts that actually come from hazel trees (or shrubs) and the nuts are also commonly referred to as filberts.

Not only a popular coffee flavoring, hazelnuts also play a key role as the main ingredient in making some types of pralines and the ever-popular Nutella - chocolate hazelnut spread.

Nutritionally, hazelnuts also compare favorably to the more popular almond.

One ounce of hazelnuts provides 178 calories, 4.3 grams of protein and 4.7 grams of carbohydrate compared to one ounce of almonds which provides 163 calories, 6 grams of protein and 5.6 grams of carbohydrate.
