Nutella Cookies

Nutella is one of my favourite things in the world ever, so when this easy recipe for Nutella Cookies was brought to my attention I got quite excited. It take only three ingredients to make these Nutella Cookies, and the recipe is simple and quick. Being so easy to make is a bit dangerous as they are equally very easy to eat. Moist, chewy, chocolatey and hazelnutty, a batch of these delicious cookies does not last long. 

I have to say a big thank you to fellow blogger Melksham Mum for sending me the recipe. She found it on Pintrest but I have since seen the same recipe on many other blogs so I have no idea where it came from originally.

If you like crunchy nuts in your cookies, add 40g of chopped hazelnuts to the cookie dough. You can also add a drop of vanilla essence if you like but it doesn't really need it.

Nutella Cookies: Makes 20 delicious cookies:

Time: 15 mins start to finish
Cost: 7p per cookie*
Calories: 105 per cookie* 

*based on 20 cookies

  • 280g Nutella
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / gas mark 4 and line two baking sheets with baking paper.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl with a fork. When the mixture becomes quite crumbly, use your hand to press the crumbs together to make a ball of dough. Knead the cookie dough until it becomes an even consistency with no white specks of flour.
  3. Roll teaspoons of the dough into walnut sized balls. The recipe makes roughly 20 cookies, but don't worry if you end up with a few more or a few less. Evenly space out the cookie dough balls on the baking sheets and press them down with three fingers to make a round cookie shape.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes until the cookies have just set. When they come out they will still be quite soft but don't be tempted to over bake them as they will not have that lovely chewy consistency. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool down completely.
