Walnut Brownies

Walnut Brownies

Very few things improve my mood as much as eating a warm, homemade brownie! You’re going to like these brownies because they’re chocolaty, sweet, nutty, and easy to make. I usually make these on a whim, when my boyfriend and I are lounging around at home and in the mood for something sweet. You likely already have most of the ingredients you need.

Are you the type of person who considers jazzing up boxed brownies (substituting milk for water, etc.) as homemade and gourmet? That’s okay! But, I’m here to tell you that you CAN make homemade brownies. It’s not at difficult as you may think. Take the culinary leap and make this recipe. I’m here to help you by answering any questions you have. You’ll never want to go back to boxed once you whip these up. And, if you’re the type of person who makes homemade desserts regularly, this is a great recipe to add to your repertoire.

Warning: this recipe is for nut lovers. If you omit nuts, I recommend adding 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips to the batter.

  1. Love this! Homemade brownies are definitely super easy – no need for those box mixes! And I love the super nutty flavors here. I always have walnuts on hand, in bulk, so this is perfect for me!
