Nutella Cookies


Nutella Cookies

Getting back to reality, even after just a long weekend is a lot of work!  I still have piles of laundry to tackle, and grocery shopping to do.  Hopefully they can get done today, and we will be back to normal!  In the meantime, I think will have to snack on a few cookies to give me some energy.

Nutella Cookies

Awhile ago on Facebook I mentioned that I finished off a large jar of Nutella in a week.  The Nutella Mousse Cups were the first recipe, this is the second.  These are pretty much the easiest cookies you will ever make.  There are 3 ingredients, and you don’t even need a mixer.  Plus the recipe makes about 2 doz cookies, which to me is perfect.  I am not stuck with tons of cookies, that I will inevitably eat way too many of.  I may have will power issues, especially around chocolate.  It is some what of a work in progress.

Nutella Cookies

Nutella has lots of sugar in it, so I didn’t even add any additional sugar to these cookies.  Just Nutella, an egg, and flour.  So can they be considered a healthy dessert?  No added sugar or butter, I might just go with that.  They are thick, chewy, dense, and scream Nutella flavor.  If you like Nutella at all, you have to get in the kitchen and try these.  You will not be disappointed!
