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!


  • ​Nutella
  • Extra large egg
  • Baking powder
  • Quick oats

How to Make Nutella Oatmeal Cookies

Mix all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Scoop the cookie dough mixture into balls and place them on a prepared baking sheet.

Bake the cookies for 10 minutes at 350°F. Leave them on the baking sheet until they are cool.

Recipe Tips

  • This recipe works best with quick oats. If you have old-fashioned oats (or rolled oats) on hand, you can pulse them in a food processor to break them down so they are like quick oats.
  • The cookies will be soft when you take them out of the oven but they will firm up as they cool.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container and they will keep at room temperature for a few days. You can also freeze them for up to a month.

  1. Best cookies. Changed it up a bit and halved the nutella portion and replaced with PB and it works soo well.

  2. Forgot to rate the recipe ?

  3. 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. 

  4. 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!

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

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

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

  8. 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 🙂

  9. 10 minutes of 350 degree burnt my cake to coal , 5 minutes maybe enough

  10. Could I use old fashioned oats instead?

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

  12. 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 (:

  13. Do you just used the uncooked oats
