4 Ingredient Flourless Nutella Oatmeal Cookies

These flourless Nutella cookies are just four ingredients and so simple to make. They are chewy, nutella-y, and have some healthy oats mixed in.

I’m on another Nutella baking kick. I don’t know why, but Nutella has been on my mind a lot lately, so this weekend I experimented with making a flourless Nutella cookie. I’ve attempted to make a flourless Nutella cookie in the past, but without much success because they simply spread too much.

But this time, I managed to make these delicious morsels with the help of quick oats, which holds the cookies together. These cookies are chewy and tasty. You can add chocolate chips too, but I thought I’d made these ones plain.

And best of all, they are so easy to make. You add four ingredients, stir, and the dough is ready. Less than five minutes of prep work!

  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or Silpat mat. Add all ingredients into a large bowl and stir with a large wooden spoon until everything is thoroughly mixed. Make small round balls, about 1 1/2 inch in diameter (you should have enough to form 10 cookies).
  • Place dough balls on baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 10 minutes. Cookies will still be soft, but they will firm up once they cool. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet until they are set and firm.

  1. Do you just used the uncooked oats

  2. hey i was wondering if i could do this without the baking powder and stick it in the microwave instead of the oven because being a student and staying in the dorms has its limitations.. thanks (:

  3. Thanks for the great recipe, my kids love it !!!

  4. Could I use old fashioned oats instead?

  5. 10 minutes of 350 degree burnt my cake to coal , 5 minutes maybe enough

  6. I made the cookies with my niece (age 12) she loved them.
    I was thinking next time to add a mashed up banana and use only 1/3 cup of nutella 🙂

  7. Made these cookies today- so good! Thanks for the recipe!
    How do I store them, fridge or outside?

  8. Yummy, I had everything to make them I just added a handful of white chocolate chips.

  9. Hey! What can I use instead of egg? Maybe flax egg?

  10. I make a batch at least once every chance I get my hands on nutella. Thanks for the recipe! I’ve been making these cookies for years!

  11. Yummy! I made with my kids 4 & 7 and they just loved them. I added some walnuts and they taste like walnut fudge. Will be making them again this weekend, double the quantity ?. Thank you for the simple but super delicious recipe.
