YUM! Oatmeal Nutella Cookies


Image

I made these cookies last weekend and had planned to share the recipe next week but they are just too good to be kept a secret any longer.

One word: Nutella!

I am obsessed with it. My high school French teacher introduced me to it (yes, I know it’s Italian) and I have been hooked ever since. An Italian product is the ONLY thing I took away from two years of high school French (shudder) – hahaha! Thank you, Madame Coldren, I remember you fondly for that reason only! 

Back to the good stuff — these cookies are wonderfully chewy and easy to make. I personally think they are better after they’ve cooled completely and better still the next day!

The holidays will be here in no time and these are PERFECT for a cookie exchange. I am thinking of hosting one myself, just so everyone will think that I am a goddess for making and gifting these! Hmmmmm….(light bulb!)

Oh, and you really won’t want to wait until the holidays to make these cookies. You actually want to make them now. I know you do, so here ya go!

Nutella Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 Stick of Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar, tightly packed
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • large egg
  • 1 Cup Nutella Hazelnut Spread
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Quick Oats

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and continue to mix. You may need to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl to ensure everything is well mixed.
  4. Add in the Nutella and blend thoroughly.
  5. Add the flour and baking powder and mix until all is combined.
  6. Add the oats. Turn the speed to low so you don’t break up the oats.
  7. Line 2 baking sheets with either a Sil-pat mat or parchment paper.
  8. Use your hands to roll one inch balls leaving space in between each cookie. You should have enough cookie dough for two dozen cookies.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes.
  10. Allow to cool before handling to prevent cookie breakage. Enjoy!

  1. Mmmmmm…Yum! I’m definitely going to give this recipe a try as soon as I get some Nutella. I love Nutella but I don’t buy it too often because it doesn’t last very long in our house on account of my husband. He will just take a big ol’ spoon out of the kitchen drawer and scoop out a mouthful of it throughout the day. Anyway, this recipe came just in time. I’m on a baking kick with these cooler Ohio temperatures. Thanks for sharing Angel! 🙂
