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
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!
