Nutella Oatmeal Cookies

Standard

After a plea for something easy to make, here is a cookie recipe.  Small time committment indeed!

Nutella really is the best thing on Earth, so why not combine it with another wonderful treat — oatmeal cookies!

It is possible to make these gluten-free if you use Quaker old-fashion oats.  Bypass the rolled oats, because those have gluten in them.  For flour I’d recommend Pamela’s baking mix or King Arthur’s flour mix.  Both taste really good without the grainy side effects.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup – Nutella
  • 3 cups – Old-fashion oats
  • 1 tsp – Ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups – Flour
  • 1/2 cup – Granulated sugar
  • 1 cup – Brown sugar
  • 1 tsp – Baking soda
  • 1 cup – Butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 tsp – Vanilla
  • 1 tsp – salt (optional)

Mix it Up!

Beat butter, sugar and brown sugar until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla until smooth.  Gradually add in flour, baking soda and cinnamon until incorporated.  Stir in oats and then nutella.

Set oven at 350 degrees and bake cookies for 8 to 9 minutes or until slighlty golden.

NOTE:  If you are making the cookies gluten-free it is recommend you bake them on the bottom rack.  Oatmeal cookies spread badly when they are gluten-free, the only way to ensure they bake thicker is to have them as far from the top heat. 

 

Enjoy!
