Chewy Nutella Oat Cookie

Recipe | May 13th 2018

God bless he or she who invented Nutella because our lives would just not be the same without it. Whether you enjoy eating it before bed, wrist deep in the jar or slathered on your morning toast, there is almost no wrong way to enjoy it.  One of our favorite ways, however, requires a little more work than some of you might be used to but trust us, its worth it.

In these cookies instead of Chocolate chips, I have made and used Nutella Chocolate chips. You will need to start the night before for these. Simply pour some Nutella in a piping bag, and cut a small tip off the end. On greaseproof paper pipe out small dots of Nutella in rows, till you have used up most of the Nutella, saving some to drizzle on top of the cookie later.
Now place the paper in the coldest part your freezer and leave overnight.  These may not harden up as your regular chocolate due to the high amount of palm oil in Nutella, but if you work fast with them, they hold their shape.  They will melt immediately at room temperature so not take them out till the absolute last minute.

Measure out all the ingredients for the cookie.
In a big mixing bowl, take the melted butter, salt, baking soda, eggs and sugar and give it a good stir. Add the all purpose flour and oats and fold it all in making sure it all well mixed. Now remove the Nutella from the freezer and add it to the cookie dough folding it through. Return this mix to the freezer for about 20-30 mins.

Preheat the oven to 180C . Use a silpat sheet or greaseproof paper and scoop out 6 balls of the cookie dough and place apart, like in the picture. These will spread and rise a little. Bake for 15 mins (in the center shelf of the oven) for a soft brownie like chewy cookie and 20 mins for a crisper at the edges cookie.
You may want to do a test cookie first to check the temperature of the oven, as every oven differs a little bit and also to see how chewy you like them. Cool them on a wire rack completely.

You can drizzle these with some Nutella just before serving or dust them with some Cinnamon Icing Sugar.  Store in an airtight container

A friend jokingly once said that if she applied Nutella to an old boot, we would eat it. Perhaps that’s why we love Paris so much; they have more of the good stuff in that one city than some country’s have. If you have kids, this is such a great treat to make with them or make and send with them to school. It is always good to keep cookies handy, they are brilliant as bribes and as purse snacks!
