nutella peanut butter cookies

I find peanut butter with nutella to be a delicious combination.


When I came across the recipe for these cookies, I knew I had to make it.  The first time I made them I was so excited that I totally forgot to chill the dough.  They came out of the oven as giant cookies.  I was thinking “what the heck went wrong?” but honestly after biting into them I fell in love.  My kids loved it too.  This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Nutella didn’t overpower the taste of peanut butter, in fact they worked well together.  Refrigerating the dough will give you puffy and moist cookies.


You will need:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter or chocolate peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed (I used light)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • 5 to 6 ounces dark chocolate, chopped

To the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment combine the egg, pb, nutella, brown sugar, vanilla, and beat on high for 5 minutes. Until the dough comes together and become a large mound.

Add the flour, baking soda, salt until fully incorporated.

Add the chocolate chunks and beat to combine.

Using a medium cookie scoop (2 tbsp) or your hands, scoop out 15 mounds of dough and place them on a plate and wrap them with cling wrapper.  Refrigerate the dough for 2 hours or up to 5 days, before baking.

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Line to baking sheet with parchament paper.

Space the mounds 2 inches apart and bake them for 9 mins, rotating the try after 5 minute mark.

Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet after taking out of the oven for 10 minutes and then transfer them to cooling rack.

Store in airtight container.
