A beloved flavor for desserts, biscotti, candy, and gelato, Gianduja is a magical combination of rich chocolate and lightly toasted hazelnuts. Made with finely-ground almond flour, these gluten-free brownies have a soft yet slightly chewy texture. An intense bittersweet flavor, fragrant hazelnuts, and a touch of cinnamon make them exceptional. Without a doubt, Gianduja is one of the best brownies you will ever make.
Gianduja (pronounced “Jahn-doo-yah”) is chocolate + hazelnuts.
