Eggless Nutella Cookies

Nutella Cookies have been on my list of to-do recipes for so long....finally this weekend I had the opportunity to bake these goodies. These cookies came out chewy & soft with the cookie crust a bit crisp. These cookies go fabulously with a glass of milk for breakfast or a snack in between meals & perfect to curb the dessert cravings post meal. All Nutella lovers these cookies are a must try. 


Am 99% sure that Nutella doesn't need an introductions but for the 1% who are now getting introduced to Nutella - It  is a smooth & sweet chocolate hazelnut spread. The only drawback or caution if I may call for baking these cookies is that you cant stop having just one cookie they are that addictive. I baked these in two batches but by the time the second batch was in my hubby & me almost finished the first batch. 

Ingredients:  (makes around 15-20 cookies)
1 & 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (or you can use regular sugar too)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup Nutella (roughly 5 tbsp)
1/4 cup milk (at room temperature)



Also required - baking tray & parchment paper




Method: 
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper & keep it ready

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the sugar & butter together till soft & creamy. Add vanilla extract & milk to it & whisk again to get a smooth batter


Now add the Nutella & mix. Mix salt, baking soda into the flour & Sift these into the Nutella batter. Mix well to get a smooth dough like batter. The consistency should be such that you should be able to make soft balls with this batter. 


Make small balls, slightly flatten them & place them equidistantly on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 mins or until the cookies start to crack on the top. Remove from the oven and allow them to stand for about 5 minutes and then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely.

Note: 

  • Don't over-bake these cookies else they will turn hard & crisp instead of soft & chewy. 
  • Add more flour if required to get the correct dough consistency i.e. to roll the dough into a ball. 
  • Feel free to add more Nutella but then reduce the amount of sugar as Nutella is sweet.

That's it, our soft & chewy Egg-less Nutella cookies are ready, Enjoy them at breakfast, as snacks or even dessert
Happy Baking!!

  11. hi shweta..thanks a bunch for writing in. You have done a great job with the blog. I love nutella soooo much so that it never makes its way into any dish. We end up eating them by the spoonful and can never stop. So i now make it a point to not keep a bottle at home :)
    the sound of nutella cookies do sound great though :)

  15. Sounds yummy, Shweta. You said 1/3 c. Nutella, or 2 tablespoons. Two seemed too little to me and did a little research. Looks like 1/3 cup would be equivalent to 5 tablespoons. Which would you recommend? Personally, I'd like 5 rather than 2. The more Nutella the better! Great job with photos and step/by/steps.
