Flourless Nutella cookies and crisps

I came across a Food & Wine recipe for flourless peanut butter cookies in The Tennessean over Christmas and jotted it down. Then I thought — hey! NUTELLA! Because, you know, it’s Nutella. How could it NOT be good?

Because these are flourless they crisp up a lot as they cool. You can control the thickness with cooking time; around 10 or 11 minutes gets you a thicker cookie; more than 12 minutes gets you a crisp, thin wafer. Both are crispy after they cool, and both are fabulous. Make a tray of each and see what you like.

Flourless Nutella cookies and crisps


  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten


  1. Mix all ingredients together and drop by tablespoon on parchment lined cookie sheets
  2. Bake at 350F, but don’t go far! These go from cookie to crisp in seconds, so watch for when they rise and start cracking on top
  3. Take them out just after cracking for a thicker result, or let them rise, crack and fall for thinner crisps.

  1. These look so easy! And yummy too! I’m definitely going to be trying these out when my stepkids visit this summer! Thanks for such a quick, easy fix. So to make the peanut butter ones, all you do is replace the nutella? Hmm… I wonder what a bit of both would be like?

  2. OMG. I tried the flourless peanutbutter cookies and had the same thought. I haven’t had a chance to try it. They look amazing. I can’t wait to try them.

  3. I tried these, put them in for 10 minutes exactly and they flattened thinner than a wafer. What the heck did I do wrong? I even chilled the batter for a while.

  4. It was at 350. However, it was my friend’s oven, and I’ve never used it before. I’m going to try them again today. So, cross your fingers for me! haha

    They did taste good, though. That makes up for them being so thin 🙂

    • Yep, that’s what I meant — I wonder if the oven was running hotter than it was set, you know? Mine appears to take temperature settings as a mere suggestion so I have to keep a thermometer in there (insert eye roll). Good luck! Fingers crossed!!
