3 Ingredient Eggless Nutella Cookies
Do you remember my easiest Nutella cookie recipe I made at the beginning of this year? I’ve made them about a dozen times and have gotten a lot of positive responses. Well, this weekend I made them even better. Just as easy as the original recipe, but now eggless and a little healthier. They still taste just as good, maybe even a little better than the original.
It’s only 3 ingredients, or 4 if you add chocolate chips. Both versions taste great.
I got the idea to try to make an eggless version when a reader asked me if I had an eggless Nutella cookie recipe. I didn’t, but then I realized it should be quite possible, especially given the texture of Nutella, So I did some experimenting and came up with these.
The key is Greek yogurt. I already have quite a collection of recipes that use Greek yogurt, but I’m always still finding new uses for it. I honestly don’t know what I like better: eating Greek yogurt or baking with it.
Whether you have an egg allergy or not, I encourage you to try this eggless version. I really did not miss the egg at all and the Greek yogurt adds more moisture to the dough so the cookies are actually slightly fudgier than the original.
This recipe is so easy to put together. The dough is ready in minutes and no mixer is required.
- 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1/4 cup nonfat plain Chobani Greek yogurt
- 1 cup of Nutella
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips optional

Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine flour, yogurt and Nutella in a large bowl and mix together with a spoon until ingredients are thoroughly blended, dough comes together and no flour lumps remain. If using, stir in chocolate chips until evenly mixed into the dough.
Make dough balls slightly bigger than 1 inch in diameter. Place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart. Press down slightly on dough with your palm so the dough balls become thick round disks. If any edges of the dough become cracked, smooth edges.
Bake for about 10 minutes. Cookies should be mostly set, but might be slightly still soft in the middle. Let cookies cool for about 1 hour to completely set. You can enjoy warm, but cookies crumbs will still be a little loose.
