  • 1 cup chocolate hazelnut spread like Nutella or another brand
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat white flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix the chocolate hazelnut spread with the egg until smooth. Add the flour and salt, and mix well until combined.
  • Using an ice cream scooper or your hands, form the cookie dough into balls. Place them evenly spaced on the baking sheet. Press the dough gently to flatten the tops.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookie tops are slightly cracked, about 8-12 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, and allow to cool.



Make ahead: You can make the dough up to one day ahead and store in the fridge.
Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to one week.
Substitutions: I’ve used a variety of flours, including AP, whole wheat and pastry flour. I haven’t tried any gluten free flours though
