I created yet another ridiculously easy Nutella cookie recipe this weekend and it may be my favorite one yet. They taste like Nutella brownies in a cookie form.

Here is a video I created to show just how easy these are!

These cookies did not last long. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to have a bunch of kids in the house. With my brother and his girlfriend visiting, the cookies were gone the next day. I love how some of them have the crackly top just like brownies.

  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup Nutella (see note)
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat mat.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir with a large wooden spoon until smooth batter forms and there are no flour or egg streaks.
  • For small-medium cookies, form small round balls, slightly less than 1 1/2 inches in diameter. You should have enough for 13 balls. (Or for medium sized cookies as seen in the video, use a 1.5 tbsp cookie scooper to scoop out balls. You should have enough for 10.) 
  • Place on baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Split between two baking sheets because the cookies do spread out. Place in oven and bake for about 10 minutes. (about 11 for the bigger cookies). Cookies will initially be puffy and will then thin out when cooling. Let cookies cool on sheet and set for about 10-15 minutes before removing and eating.


  • Be sure to use a dry measuring cup rather than one used for liquids.

  1. This recipe is great, you’ll have all four ingredients in the cupboard and literally take 20 minutes from start to finish. They are squidgy inside and crispy outside and don’t lose their nutella flavour. Will try the biscoff version next!

  2. The cookies were very good and quick. Loved it! If you like Nutella, you need to try this cookie. You will love it. Very easy. Loved it. No need for change in my opinion.

  3. These are awesome I made them again and added some peanutbutter chips (Reeses)
    I do find they get hard if not kept in a closed container.
    10 stars

  4. I love this recipe not too sweet.
    I just ate 4 OMG.

  5. These are so good! I followed the recipe exactly but made the cookies smaller. We had 23 cookies. So good! Even my son, who doesn’t care for chocolate much, loved these. Thank you for a yummy and super easy recipe.

  6. Outstanding! My batch made 18 cookies with a small scoop. Delicious and chewy! Thank you.

  7. Hi, these look amazing!!
    Before I make them, I don’t have any baking powder and can’t go to the shops. Is there another good substitute I could use? Would self-raising flour work if I remove the recipe flour and baking powder?
    Cant wait to make and try these.

  8. I just got finished making these cookies and they came out great. I will most definitely be making them again in the near future. The next time i might add pecans or walnuts for that extras crunch.
    The best thing about it super fast and easy

  9. I don’t have a lot of experience with baking, but these cookies were very easy to make and tasted great. Truly a genius recipe!

  10. my cookies didn’t spread or look cracked across the top like the photo does.. is there anything i could have done wrong ? 

    • Did you check your baking powder? If it’s old, it won’t work and the cookies won’t spread. Be sure to check out the video, too, to see if that helps

  11. Can I freeze this dough? If yes, for how long?

  12. Love these cookies! I made then for the first time over the summer and everyone loved them. Planning on making them again either today or tomorrow!

  13. I just finished making these. The dough was a little too runy so I added another tablespoon of flour and then when they came out of the over, I sprinkled a little powdered sugar. They taste amazing!! Definitely going to make more. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  14. i always come back to making these cookies; theyre delicious! sometimes i make an extra batch of batter and freeze the extra batch in pre-portioned drops so i just pop them in the oven when guests come for fresh, amazing cookies. thanks for this awesome recipe <3

    • I’m so glad you enjoy them! I’m not sure why I never thought to freeze some dough. I’ll have to do that next time as well!

  15. Easy enough but pretty boring flavor. If I did this again, I would add nuts or sprinkle some sea salt on top to give them some flavor.

  16. These cookies are fudgy and amazing! I used gf flour (celiac) and I will make these over and over. Thanks!!

  17. I decided to make these but realised I didn’t have enough Nutella. So I used a jar of Biscoff cookie spread instead! Turned out great, not to sweet either! Thanks for the base recipe!

  18. These cookies smell so yummy I making some right now and there so biggggg! I just took them out right now and it smell like resh brownies.

  19. I tried this recipe (added some slivered almonds) and it was amazing! Thank you so much…. PS these cookies are dangerous I just ate 4.

  20. Hi. I added some milk. It took away some of the crispy part but they still tastes delish!!
