Hi Bold Bakers!

What if I told you that you could make a batch of cookies with just 3 ingredients in under 10 minutes — and oh yeah, the main ingredient is NUTELLA? Behold my recipe for 3 Ingredient Nutella Cookies is here. I know it sounds unbelievable and that’s because it sort of is. These cookies are everything you want out of a chocolate cookie without any of the fuss. Novice bakers and pros alike will go crazy for these!

What is Nutella?

If you’ve never had Nutella before, I suggest you run to the store and grab yourself a jar ASAP!

Nutella is rich chocolate and hazelnut flavored dessert spread. Its creamy texture, a cross between a nut butter and chocolate spread, is really versatile, offering such a rich texture. This is what makes it the perfect base for these 3 Ingredient Nutella Cookies. With almost no effort these cookies bake up to be chewy and soft with the most perfect crumbly exterior. You will not believe how yummy they are.

How to Make 3 Ingredient Nutella Cookies

In another recipe, I showed you how to take 3 simple ingredients (flour, Nutella, and egg) and make the ultimate Nutella brownies. Well, after I baked those up I was curious, could I change this recipe into Nutella cookies!? Well, the answer is yes! By simply adding a bit more flour and taking away 1 egg I was able to make the moistest and chewiest Nutella cookies.

A stack of brown nutella cookies made out of only three ingredients.

What can I add to Nutella Cookies?

These cookies really are as simple as 1,2,3. Just mix up the dough, roll into balls and bake. The best part, these cookies are done in under 10 minutes making them perfect for those sweet treat cravings we all have. I love these cookies on their own but you can add any kind of chocolate chips or nuts you like. These would also be so yummy filled with peanut butter or used to make ice cream sandwiches… the combinations are endless!

How to Store Nutella Cookies

Once the cookies are fully cooked they can be covered and stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. These are awesome the next day heated up in the microwave, they get gooey and soft as if they were just baked even a few days later!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat the oven to 350°F (180°C), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the Nutella, flour, and egg to a large bowl. Mix until well combined.
  • The mixture will form a thick dough but should be moist enough to roll into balls.
  • Using your hands roll about 2 tablespoons of dough into balls. Place cookies on your baking sheet and flatten them slightly with your fingertips or the bottom of a glass.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until they are cooked around the edges and still slightly soft in the middle. Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then cool on a baking rack. Enjoy!

Honestly for the effort I put in (almost none) and the time I spent (again, like 5 mins or so) this is the best chocolate cookie recipe ever. Plus you don’t need a ton of fancy ingredients and it means a lot. They turned out so delicious with a gooey center and slightly crispy edges. I tried many cookie recipes before and hardly any worked for me. But this is simple and amazing. Seriously Gemma you’re amazing. Thank you for a short, simple, and delicious recipe.

Today I bought some Nutella (in bulk from Costco) & thought ‘hey! there must be a cookie recipe somewhere!!” So this was the first recipe that appeared in Google. After comparing reviews I decided to give this easy one a go. What’s not to love.. it’s only 3 INGREDIENTS! Upon making these, I found the dough to be super thick & a little hard to manipulate so I added a tiny splash of my coffee milk (can carnation milk.. a Newfie thing, lol) which made it a bit more ‘wet’ ..as the cookies were baking I totally forgot to flatten… Read more »

Not a fan. Nutella on a spoon tastes better. Too floury taste.

Very quick and easy to make! I like that it takes less than fifteen minutes to prepare. Only downside is that the cookies didn’t spread like I thought they would. Oh well. There’s always next time.

This recipe was probably the easiest recipe I have ever tried! In the amount it takes to prepare and bake only rounded to 20 minutes. The presentation of the cookies looked delicious. The taste of the cookies was also good, the outside was crispy and the inside was soft and that was another reason why I enjoyed it. However, for me, this recipe made 8 cookies but I did follow the exact same measurements as you said to do, but it didn’t bother me as the cookies were slightly larger. I will 100% try this recipe again and recommend it… Read more »

i didn’t have enough nutella so i did half quantities, i decided to use one medium egg and it seemed to make the consistency better. so if you use this at the origional amount, use 2 medium eggs instead of a large egg 🙂

Tried this recipe today and it worked really well. Perfect consistency and so quick. Really tasty. Not too sweet which is lovely, also had a great crunch but soft in the middle. Will definitely make these again. Thanks
