Fewer than a handful of ingredients and you're in warm, gooey Nutella heaven

When it comes to Nutella, it's hard to go wrong. Let's be real; we're totally down to eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon — but it's also nice to indulge in a warm, hazelnutty, chocolaty treat every now and again too. Well, my friends, this three-ingredient Nutella cookie recipe is the best of both worlds. The simplicity of plain Nutella crossed with warm gooeyness of a baked good. Perfection.

Whip up a batch over the weekend, and they're guaranteed to be gone in two days. They are that good.

3-ingredient Nutella cookie recipe

Adapted from A Busy Nest

Yields 20


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 large egg


  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat liner.
  2. To the bowl of an electric mixer, add all the ingredients, and mix until well combined.
  3. The mixture will be thick but should be moist enough to roll into balls the size of 2 tablespoons.
  4. Add the balls to the baking sheet, and flatten them slightly with your fingertips or the bottom of a glass.
  5. Bake for about 7 minutes, until they are cooked around the edges and still slightly soft in the middle. Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then cool on a baking rack.
  6. Continue until all the cookies have been made.

Note: You can also roll your cookie balls into some sugar to give them a little sparkle. For best results use Nutella from a freshly-opened can, not older, dried-out Nutella.
