I really liked the chewy Nutella chocolate chip cookies I made last month. I had a huge craving for Nutella recently, but rather than make the same cookies, I decided to play around with the recipe a little and make simple Nutella cookies.

I love the chocolate chips in the other cookie recipe, but I wondered what the cookies would look like without them. The chocolate chips make the cookies a little uneven, so I decided to omit them and see what happens.

As you can see, when you take out the chocolate chips the cookies you are left with are these perfectly flat, round cookies. I love how they look and I love the soft and chewy texture.

  • Softened unsalted butter
  • Granulated sugar
  • Light brown sugar
  • Nutella
  • Egg
  • Vanilla
  • Flour
  • Baking soda
  • Salt

Recipe Tips

For this recipe, you will need room temperature butter so you can cream it with the sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Then you can add the egg, vanilla, and Nutella and the wet ingredients are done.

Whisk your dry ingredients in a separate bowl before adding them to the wet ones. Stir the two together just until they’re combined.

Once the cookies are in the oven, they only need to bake for about 8 minutes or so. The middle of the cookies will take longer, so keep an eye on them and once the middle is set the cookies are done.

When you take the cookies out of the oven, they will initially be very puffy. As they cool, they will flatten and the surface of the cookies will be crackled.

Store the cooled Nutella cookies in an airtight container. They will keep for two to three days at room temperature.

  1. I’m confused by the sugar amounts. Do you really mean 1/2 cup but then remove 2 tbsp.??

  2. Hi, i was wondering if 350 F oven would be like minimum or medium because I’m from Argentina and my oven doesn’t have degrees.
    I’m really looking forward to bakins this cookies and many other recipes I’ve read here.
    Thanks in advance!

    • I’m really not sure how to set your oven without any degrees. Baking is very dependent on an exact temperature and even something a few degrees off can cause the cookies not to cook correctly.

  3. Hi! We tried your cookies recipe yesterday with my lil brother. He’s 7 years old and he loved them:) He thinks they look just like the ones he saw in the cartoons. We usually make our traditional type of biscuits. Thank you very much^^
    I think they are a sugary too much, I guess that’s because the palate difference:)
    I’d be really happy if you can suggest a recipe which is fun to make together with my borther:)
    Loves from ?stanbul=)

  4. In the other nutella cookies there was 1 cup of nutella, in these there is only 1/2 cup. Does that mean that they will be less chocolaty? Do you think it would mess up the recipe if I put a whole cup of nutella? I love nutella!!

  5. love this recipe!! made it soooo many times already and love the chewiness! thank u~~
