I love easy cookie recipes with few ingredients and this Nutella cookie recipe is my new favorite. I could hardly wait to take the photos before taking a bite.

Chewy Nutella Cookie for One

Sometimes you want a cookie but don’t have the time or energy to make a whole batch. This happens to me quite often so I’ve been having so much fun coming up with single-serving cookies.

This one is so easy to make and it bakes in the oven. I like microwave cookies in a pinch, but sometimes the only way to get a fudgy, chewy cookie is to bake it. It adds a little more time, but it’s worth it.

I’m so in love with this Nutella cookie I have four different ways you can make it. Depending on your preference, you might like an extra chewy, or one with chocolate chips so I am sharing how to make those. Also, because the original recipe makes a giant cookie, I am sharing how you can reduce the ingredients to make a smaller one.

Whichever version you want to try, they are all delicious.

Three Ingredients for a Big Cookie

  • Nutella
  • All-purpose flour
  • Whisked egg

This makes a tiny batch of dough perfect for one big cookie. For the egg, you only need a tablespoon so the easiest way to measure it is to whisk the egg first and then measure the amount.

Recipe Steps

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.

Place the dough on a prepared baking sheet. Shape it so it looks like a cookie (not a round ball).

Bake it for 11 to 13 minutes or until the edges are dark brown and the cookie is set in the middle. Cool it on the baking sheet for a few minutes before eating.

Recipe Variations

I love this Nutella cookie so much I came up with a few different ways to make it:

  • Extra Chewy: If you want a cookie that is less fudgy and chewier like a brownie, add ¼ teaspoon of baking powder to the dough.
  • For a Smaller Cookie: Halve all of the ingredients and bake it for 9 minutes
  • Chocolate Chip Nutella Cookie: Add 2 teaspoons of chocolate chips to the dough before you bake it.

This cookie is fudgy, chewy and only three ingredients. It's so easy to make and perfect for when you want just one single cookie. Be sure to check the recipe notes for different variations!


  • 4 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients, stirring until no flour or egg streaks remain and dough is thoroughly mixed. 
  • Place dough on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat mat. Shape dough to form a round disc (not a round ball) on a baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes for the extra large cookie, until edges turn a dark brown and middle of the cookie is set. Cool the cookie for a few minutes on cookie sheet before removing and eating.


Recipe Variations:
  • To make an extra chewy version, add in 1/4 tsp of baking powder to the mix. The cookie is slightly less fudgy and chewier like a brownie.
  • To make a regular-sized cookie halve the ingredients. So, combine 2 tablespoons Nutella, 1 tablespoon flour, and 1/2 tablespoon whisked egg and bake the cookie for 9 minutes.
  • To make a chocolate chip version add 2 tbsp chocolate chips to the top of the cookie right before baking.

  1. i had too cook my cookie for way longer then it said and it was quite dry more like cookie crumbles i did let it sit and it did get firmer but its still quite dry

    • How long did you bake it? It sounds like it was baked too long – once it’s set around the edges and the middle, it’s done.

  2. Sorry re-read and see 350F. Please ignore earlier question.

  3. At what temperature do you bake it?

  4. Can i use flax egg instead of egg?

  5. I tried this recipe ad it was DELICIOUS!!!! I WILL be making this again!

  6. my cookie actually turned out pretty gooey in the middle, even when I tried to bake it for a longer time, but it still tasted yummy!

  7. Mine came out like the base of a sponge cake, would you know why this happened?!

    • hmm, i notice you are in the UK. did you make sure you used plain flour with no rising agent? and also I believe Uk measurements are not the same as US ones so did you make the right conversions?

  8. Don’t mind me, I’m just furiously bookmarking all your Nutella recipes since I just got a full Costco-sized jar… 😛

  9. Wow! SO tasty! I’ve made too many already!

  10. TC already wants to do this ( me too!). So simple!

  11. what a fun cookie!

  12. This is so easy and fun, I seriously can’t wait to make this!!
