Three Ingredient Nutella Cookies

Got Nutella? Check. Flour? Check. Egg? Check. Alright, now you have everything you need to make these delicious three ingredient Nutella cookies.

After I made these four ingredient Nutella brownies a while back, I’ve been wanting to make a Nutella cookie with the same concept. I tried a few recipes but they didn’t come out right. Finally, I came across this recipe which worked perfectly.

These cookies are chock full of Nutella flavor. It’s basically like dipping your spoon into a jar of Nutella but having it in a cookie form. They aren’t the prettiest cookies, but they are ridiculously easy to make with so few ingredients and steps.

They have a chewy texture and taste of Nutella through and through. Yummy.

The original recipe calls for four ingredients, adding sugar to the cookie batter. Because there is so much Nutella in these cookies, I didn’t think they needed the additional sugar, so I eliminated that ingredient, making this recipe even easier.

  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix all ingredients with a large spoon until dough batter forms. The batter may be slightly crumbly but should come together for the most part.
  • Form the dough into 1 inch balls. Place on a cookie sheet. Press the balls down with the palm of your hand until they are round and flat. I smoothed out the edges of the cookies after flattening them. Space them about 1 inch apart. Bake for 7-8 minutes for the cookies to set.

  1. They are delicious.  I baked them about one & a half minutes longer than recipe.  Could be my oven.  I also sprinkled sea salt on them before baking.

  2. Will it bake the same on foil vs parchment paper? My son has a potluck tomorrow at his school for the upcoming thanksgiving holiday & i wanted to make simple nutella sandwich cookies kind of like the ones i used to eat at my old job the prudential center. I need to make at least 60 cookies in a few hours!

    • you don’t want to use foil because it will affect the cookies ability to spread and they will stick to the foil. Parchment paper is much better for baking cookies

  3. I made these last night and they were great! I didn’t have baking sheets so I put it on tinfoil and it turned out fine, I also halved the ingredients except the egg of course! I loved them and so did my friend! she even asked me to make them for her birthday so I definitely will be using this recipe again! ????

  4. I added white chocolate chips and hazelnuts to mine! A lot of sweet- and richness. Plus a texture additive.

  5. What type of flour??? Xx About to try this !! 🙂

  6. I tried these with almond flour for a gluten-free cookie–the dough was wetter than you described so I baked them a little longer, maybe 9 minutes, then let them sit on the cookie sheet to let them harden a little. Simple and perfect! They aren’t super sweet but they taste just like nutella. I might try the peanut butter variation listed above too. Thanks!

  7. worst recipe for cookies ever total mess followed instructions exactly and still took bou 10 mins extra to cook and were a flop

  8. Hi, still a novice baker and this is the first recipe that i’m goin to try! But because i’m still new…may I know roughly exactly how much is 1 cup of flour and nutella? (e.g 50gram flour, nutella)

    Sorry for this type of novice qns! Really wish to start learning baking n surprise my boyfriend with it! 🙂

    • Hmm, trying searching on google for a conversion. I don’t know the measurements in weight unfortunately. Hope it turns out well for you!

  9. Just tried this! It turned out to be AWESOME. So easy and simple! I only need to add about the quantity: in the recipe it says it’s for 10 cookies, but for me I have 24 cookies xD Not that I’m complaining hahaha. I use the right measurement btw. Ooh, and I think I use a bit too much Nutella cos the cookies are a bit too sweet, but overall, awesome recipe! Thanks so much!

  10. Just made them, thanks for the awesome, quick recipe! I added a bit of milk, a tsp of vanilla extract, another 2 tbsp of flour , and CHILI POWDER! I love the sweet/spicy combo.. This can be tweaked so many ways ! I left them a bit thicker, like others have mentioned in the comments, and they are akin to a mini brownie bite. Perfect with coffee 🙂

  11. Nutrional value on these?

  12. I made these tonight and they were very tasty! If you’re a diehard nutella fan, these cookies are for you! A few pointers for those of you having issues.

    First, the egg needs to be a LARGE egg. I can see where one might have dough that is too dry to stick together if they use a regular egg.

    Second, adding a splash of milk to the mixture does help mix things together a little bit.

    Third, the dough will spread out a bit, which is why it is important that you follow the step which tells you to form them into 1 inch balls. Any bigger than that and you’re going to end up with a big goopy un-set cookie.

    Hope this helps! Thanks for the recipe!

    • Thanks for sharing your pointers. I didn’t even think about the egg because i always use large ones, but you are right, if someone uses a smaller egg it most likely won’t work since the dough barely comes together even with the large egg

  13. these are definately going on my fall/xmas cookie list to make,so easy yet so delicious!
