World Nutella Day – Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies

nutella cookie 1

Is there anyone who doesn’t like Nutella? Is that possible?

I’ve convinced myself that Nutella is good for me.  Healthy even.  Isn’t it?  I am guilty of hearing tidbits of “facts” from unreliable sources and repeating them as sound, test and tried and true facts.  When I want to.  When it’s to my advantage.  As in, “Nutella is good for you.” Or “It’s going to snow 32 inches today.” (That one has been true recently in New York!). The innate ability to do this convincingly is probably why I am a lawyer.

And this recipe doesn’t disappoint.  If you are a non-baker like me, take comfort. It’s easy to make. Quick to bake. A low fuss, highly rewarding baking project.

Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes ~ 2 dozen


3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons peanut butter (I’ve also used almond butter)
4 tablespoons nutella
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 egg
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat over to 350 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda.  In a bigger mixing bowl, mix the butter, peanut butter, nutella and syrup. Mix well. Add the egg and mix well until smooth. Slowly stir in the flour mixture. Grease the cookie tray using butter or non-stick spray. Pinch off a little less than a tablespoon and roll in the palm of your hand to form a ball. Place about a half inch apart from each other. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

  1. I love Nutella and the cookies look delicious. I’m also reading this blog while I’m hungry, which doesn’t help! 🙂

  2. You’re definitely kiillng me with this bread! My mom used to make pull apart breads and they were my favorites not because of the taste, but because they are SO much fun to eat! So take pull apart bread and add garlic and chives and what do you have? A fun and heavenly delight! These are delicious!
