Variations & Serving Ideas:

Pro Tips for delicious Cookies:

  • Allow dough to chill, this lets the fat set up so cookies do not spread too thin.
  • If chilling dough overnight, allow to come to room temperature before scooping for easier scooping.
  • Do not overcrowd baking sheets, allow ample space for these cookies to spread and not stick together
  • Start with less time and add baking time as needed so cookies stay chewy
  • Use a round cookie cutter or lid to gently scoot warm cookies into perfect circles
  • Sprinkle with sea salt while warm if desired

These cookies are hearty, chewy, and have the perfect Nutella flavor! Perfect if you have a opened jar of Nutella to get used up.

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine, set aside.
  • In the bowl of a hand or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Add in the Nutella and mix again until incorporated. Mix in the vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until combined. Fold in the oats. Cover and chill for 60 minutes.
  • Using a portion scoop or cookie scoop, scoop even sized balls of cookie dough – roughly 1 oz. Arrange evenly on the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until golden brown, cookies will still be soft in the middle. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired and enjoy!

Notes:

*Use a round cookie cutter to scoot cookies into perfect circles after baking!

*Leftover cookies can be kept in an air tight container at room temperature for up to a week!
