Nutella Cookie Crisps

Have you ever made a recipe that comes out looking like crap but tastes really good? I had that experience with these cookies. After making flourless peanut butter cookies, I wondered if I could apply the same easy recipe with Nutella.

Well my first batch was a complete mess. Nutella spreads a lot more than peanut butter and the cookies all blended together into one giant sheet. They were an ugly mess. Yet addicting when I broke off a piece. The outside was super thin and crispy. The inside was chewy, almost like a hardened caramel. Not quite the texture of your average cookie. But they tasted really yummy.

So I set about trying to correct the recipe. I’m sure there is a way to make a good flourless Nutella cookie, but so far all the flourless cookie recipes I’ve come across require whipping egg whites and I wanted something easy. I also wanted to somehow preserve the intense Nutella flavor and not make the cookie doughy.

So I added a little tiny bit of flour at a time until I finally made a version where the cookies baked as round cookies rather than one melted mess.

Nutella Cookie Crisps


1 cup Nutella
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 large egg
6 tablespoons flour
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix everything except chocolate chips in medium bowl until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Batter will be sticky and wet. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop 1/2 tablespoon dough and place onto cookie sheet, space about 3 inches apart. Make sure to keep the cookie balls very small as they will spread a lot when baking.

2. Bake cookies about 9-10 minutes. Careful not to overbake or else cookies become more hard than chewy. Leave cookies on sheet to cool and set.

  1. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside is my favorite texture for cookies!!

  2. YUM! I have 2 big jars of Nutella from Costco and can’t wait to make these!

  3. Most of my cookie recipes are the gooey types. The only one I have in my repertoire for crisp cookies is the all-time favorite oatmeal cookie crisps. It is high time I add another one to the recipe file…This is definitely it! I love Nutella! Thanks for the post.

  4. WOW! Made this recipe and let me tell you, the cookies were so amazing! Such an amazing hit and the children finished them very fast. Thank you for your post!!
