I made these No-Bake Nutella Oatmeal Cookies a few weeks ago, and they were too good to be true. Not only are they a “No-Bake” cookie recipe, but they are filled with my favorite ingredients: Nutella, peanut or almond butter, dark cocoa powder, oats and almond milk. These are an ideal afternoon gluten-free snack or dessert. I think I definitely need to make a batch for Mother’s Day.
No-Bake Nutella Oatmeal Cookies
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon dark chocolate cocoa powder
1/4 cup peanut or almond butter
3/4 cup Nutella hazelnut spread (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
2 cups rolled oats
1. In a medium to large saucepan, melt the butter over medium to medium-low heat. Add the sugar, milk, and cocoa powder and mix until combined. Stir in the peanut butter and Nutella until melted, followed by the oats. Continue mixing until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Reduce heat to lowest setting.
2. Working quickly, use a cookie scoop to shape balls and place them on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Refrigerate for thirty minutes until firm. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
