Sweet, chewy, crispy cookies full of chocolatey goodness that are gluten free and a snitch to make!
Happy New Year! Kirsten here again sharing a delicious and easy recipe for Gluten Free Nutella Cookies!
We have all had that problem…
The brownie problem…
You know, you cook a bunch of brownies… trying to convince yourself that you made them for everyone else around you.
The house smells of sweet chocolate and when you pull them out of the oven, that chewy but crispy thin crust almost calls your name. It is SUCH a shame that when you cut them, there is always some sacrificial scrap of brownie that throws itself on the side and begs you to eat it.
Then there is the Nutella problem… someone says the word or you see that black, red and white container and you start to drool…
As a kid, we use to (sneak) it from the jar with a spoon… but now I have found jeans that I love and they whispered in my ear “you can’t do that anymore!”
Now, your thinking… where is she going??
I am going HERE… Easy, quick, Gluten Free Nutella cookies that are so chocolately, thin (so you can have more ) and crust up beautifully and are chewy like the best part of brownies.
These cookies were born out of the best environment: cravings, cooking shows and the most important ingredient: boredom.
I am SO bored… I have even cleaned the house top to toe (even cleaned the filters in the fountain) I had plans to go for a run, but my friend cancelled… and well… it’s my day off. So I turned to the kitchen… cake, cookies and oh my gosh- I just remembered I have a cheesecake still in the oven. (edit update: it burnt!)
Make these Gluten Free Nutella Cookies and.. enjoy. They are best friends with milk, coffee or a warm tea, perfect for chilly winter nights!
Gluten Free Nutella Cookies
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 3/4 cup almond meal/flour
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla essence or extract
Mix the Nutella and egg together in a small-medium bowl. Once combined, add the rest of the ingredients. It will be a runny, but thick consistency.
Line a cookie tray with baking paper and then place teaspoons of the mixture on the tray. Leave a large space between the cookies as they will spread a lot.
Bake at 350 degrees F or 170 C for 10-15 minutes or until they are spread, thin and slightly cracked on top. They should have a crust and slightly gooey when touched lightly.
Take them out and allow them to cool on the tray so they harden before moving to a cooling rack.
Store in an airtight container
