Super Simple Nutella Lover’s Chocolate Cookie

Chewy and fudgy chocolate hazelnut cookies for all Nutella and chocolate lovers.

Ever since elementary school when I started eating Nutella sandwiches I was obsessed. I remember coming home from school with my grandma, and as part of my after-school snack, she would give me a big spoonful of Nutella and tell me to not tell my mom. I loved it, it made me so happy. To this day, Nutella is my favorite spread. I love to use it as a cake fillings, pretzel dip, eat it plain, or in a Kinder Egg. I had yet to make Nutella cookies until coming across this recipe from Ambitious Kitchen.

These cookies are so easy, chewy, fudgy and only 5 ingredients! I was skeptical of this recipe because there was no butter, minimal sugar, and no leavener. I was so wrong! These cookies are so yummy AND they are the easiest cookies I have ever made. They are chewy and full of Nutella galore, and they are even more addictive than just plain Nutella.

This recipe only requires one bowl. Mix all the ingredients together in the bowl of a stand mixer. Then, using a 1-inch cookie scoop, roll the dough into a smooth ball. Place the dough balls on a tray and freeze for 10 minutes before baking. If you want to add even more chocolate to these cookies, you can press a few chocolate chips into the dough ball before baking. Then, bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the top of the cookie does not feel raw.

The Nutella lover in me loves this cookie recipe! I like the chew these cookies have along with the fudginess of the Nutella. Also, this cookie is so good with a nice glass of milk (or almond milk). I hope you give this recipe a try!

I would love to see your recreation of these Nutella cookies from Ambitious Kitchen! Tag me on Instagram @beyondbakingwithamandajane! Enjoy!
