I was recently thinking about ways to incorporate Nutella into every day? (Kidding, but what day isn’t improved with a spoonful or pretzel-ful of this stuff?) Why not use Nutella in my favorite cookie of all time? If the Santa Claus in your household is a fan of Nutella and a fan of No Bake Oatmeal Cookies, I can pretty much guarantee extra presents for the good little boy or girl who leaves Nutella No Bake Oatmeal cookies out with a glass of milk.
If you have someone on a gluten free diet on your cookie list, good news. This recipe can work for them. If you use Gluten Free Rolled Oats, these cookies are safe! Just be careful to avoid cross contamination with other items in your kitchen. Just as an fyi, regular rolled oats are not acceptable for many people on a gluten free diet. There are often trace amounts of wheat from the processing.
Nutella No Bake Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
[There is a printable recipe below this one.]
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 4 TBSP Nutella
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3 cups uncooked oatmeal (rolled oats)
In a large mixing bowl stir together the oatmeal, Nutella, and chocolate chips.
Spoon by rounded tablespoon onto a sheet of wax paper and allow to cool. I find a cookie scoop works perfectly for these cookies. Scoop, then squash slightly. The chocolate will become much firmer as the cookies cool. You can speed the process by placing in the refrigerator, but it is not necessary. If the weather is exceptional humid they’ll be softer.
