Save Recipe

Just 3 Ingredients will yield these delicious Nutella Cookies. One of those ingredients is, of course, loads of Nutella!

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 a rich chocolate and hazelnut flavored dessert spread. Its creamy texture, a cross between a nut butter and chocolate spread, is really versatile, offering so much 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.

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 go gooey and soft as if they were just baked even a few days later!

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F (180°C), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Add the Nutella, flour, and egg to a large bowl. Mix until well combined.
  3. The mixture will form a thick dough but should be moist enough to roll into balls.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!

    I made the cookie recipe dough was very runny so i added a little flour on top . That totally ruined the texture was dry and cakey and cracking

    • Gemma Stafford on September 19, 2019 at 4:08 am

      hi there,
      tell me exactly what you did, this should not be runny, I am not sure what made it so. Something out of whack for you I think, do let me know,
      Gemma 🙂

  2. Darlene Hawkins on August 13, 2019 at 11:28 am

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

  3. Jennifer Edwards on August 4, 2019 at 8:16 am

    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

    • Gemma Stafford on August 5, 2019 at 2:55 am

      Hi Jennifer,
      many thanks for this kind review, other bold bakers will appreciate it. I am happy you enjoyed this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

    They Were Pretty Good! I Might Make more Stuff From This Website

    • Gemma Stafford on July 26, 2019 at 11:40 am

      I’m thrilled to hear that! Thanks so much for trying out my recipes 🙂

    Hi Jemma could I omit the cocoa powder and add apple sauce instead of Natalia? Would this work made your gramps ones which are delicious just a thought for a different flavour as there sooo easy to make thanks

    • Gemma Stafford on July 17, 2019 at 2:06 am

      Hi Janette,
      I do not know! haha, this will be a whole new cookie, but I think you can give it a try.
      I am not sure what GRAMPS cookie is, predictive text is very odd, but I think you can judge this, this will have no fat, and it may need a little oil or butter.
      I would have to try it to be sure,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Kendall Thompson on June 7, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    I would like to make these cookies in advance to an event, would you suggest freezing these in dough form or already baked?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 8, 2019 at 4:29 am

      Hi Kendall,
      I would freeze the dough, bake on the day or the day before, store in an airtight container in a cool place.
      I hope this goes well for you,
      Gemma 🙂

    I think the cookies were a little bit bland. Mine could’ve used some extra sugar and I had to add some milk because the dough was very dry.

    • Gemma Stafford on June 4, 2019 at 12:18 pm

      Hi there,
      Thank you for this suggestion. It divides people this one! You can, of course, add a little sugar, it will also change the texture somewhat. I think 1 – 20zs of brown sugar will be a lovely addition and help to retain moisture in this little cookie.
      Thank you for your input,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Kirsten on May 25, 2019 at 7:34 pm

    Mine did not seem to be rolling consistency after adding all of the right measurements, I added a little more Nutella and they seemed to be fine but then needed more time in the over and wouldn’t flatten out. Where could I have gone wrong?

    • Gemma Stafford on May 29, 2019 at 9:48 am

      Hi Kirsten,

      Sorry for my late reply. I’m sorry to hear that, thats a bit funny. I’m not sure the reason for that. Sometimes different flours and size of eggs can effect recipes in this way.


  9. Kayra on May 16, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    As an avid cookie baker, I did not find these cookies to be very flavorful at all. If you’re looking for a late night munchie, this doesn’t quite hit the spot.

    • Gemma Stafford on May 17, 2019 at 11:16 am

      Hi there,
      I am sorry you did not like this cookie Kayra. ( here you will find the whole collection, some like this designed to get people baking, others a little more complex.
      thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

    As a new baker I never imagined making my 1st time cookie would be so simple. My twins loved the nutella cookie and inhaled it!! Love the recipe. Thanks.

    • Gemma Stafford on April 5, 2019 at 12:32 pm

      YAY i’m delighted to hear that!

  11. Finn on April 3, 2019 at 2:24 pm
