Gluten Free Nutella Cookies


This morning I was baking some peanut butter cookies and it dawned on me. If I can make 3-ingredient cookies (PB, egg, sugar) with peanut butter, maybe I could do something similar with the jar of Nutella in my cupboard. So I tried.

I won’t keep you in suspense. Here’s the recipe:

1 c. Nutella (or Jif chocolate hazelnut or anything similar)

1/4 c. [gfree] flour

1 egg

No need to add sugar. Nutella already has enough! Mix it up, bake at 350 for 8 minutes. You can see I left mine in longer than 8 minutes so they’re a bit overdone on the edges. Don’t let them sit on your cookie sheet tooooo long or you won’t get them off. Now, these are NOT dairy free. Nutella has milk in it. I think next time I’ll add some mini chocolate chips to make it just a bit more chocolatey. Let me know what you think!

In other news, I’ll be starting an extensive review of The Family Hope Center’s programs. They have sent me their Thriving Child program and I’ll be attending their 3-day special needs seminar next month. The Thriving Child program works with all children to help their brain be more organized, but of course I’ll be approaching it as a special needs mom. It’s all about the parts of the brain and how they develop and how you can help your child strengthen parts of his brain and see improvement in deficits.

Now, go try those cookies!

  1. This is just wrong you know that…now I have to go get the Nutella this weekend…

  2. What do you use for gluten free flour? I have friends and family who do gluten free, and I’d love to be able to make treats for them when they come to visit!

    • Hi, Teisha. Gluten free flour can be expensive, so if they are not staying long, I’d say go with something like peanut butter cookies or a Chex mix w/the gfree chex that don’t require flour. Or you could use a Betty Crocker gfree mix. If they’re going to be around for a while, my favorite gfree flour is King Arthur.

  3. Hi just found your blog. I will be making your cookies today for my son but instead of gluten free flour I will use dried dessicated coconut. Works like a charm! I use it all the time instead of flour even if it is a savory dish.

    • Thanks for the tip, Gail!

      • Well I just made them. The ones just on a cookie sheet fell apart when I transferred them. For the remainder, I put some on waxed paper and some on parchment paper. Let them cool 10 minutes and they came right off. I also added a little vanilla.
