Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350. Lightly coat an 8x8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast until fragrant and lightly golden, 8-10 minutes. Cool briefly, then roughly chop.
  3. Heat chocolate in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until melted, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Sift flour, cinnamon, and coffee powder into a medium bowl; set aside. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at high speed, beat margarine and vanilla until creamy. Add sugar substitute and continue to beat on high until rubber spatula, and beat to combine. Add melted chocolate and beat until combined. Stir in hazelnuts and chocolate chips.
  5. Pour batter into the baking pan and bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool completely, cut into 32 (1x2-inch) pieces, and serve.
