4-Ingredient Nutella and Peanut Butter Cookies


The other night, while waiting for the season finale of Dancing with the Stars, I had a hankering for something sweet.

But, what's a girl to do if she's practically out of butter and the baking soda is mysteriously missing from her pantry?

She heads to Pinterest and spots this recipe, that's what!

But, I have trouble leaving a recipe as is.

So, I tweaked it a bit.

I eliminated the sugar + added peanut butter.

4-ingredients and about 10 minutes later I had one of those moments where I realized that I had been missing something in my life!

These cookies.


So simple, so ridiculously good, and so easy!

Just start with 4-ingredients: Flour, eggs, peanut butter, and nutella


Mix them:



Roll the dough into little balls:


Squish 'em:


Pop them in the oven, bake, cool, and then enjoy!


Here's my version:

4-Ingredient Nutella and Peanut Butter Cookies
(makes approximately 12-15 cookies)
Adapted from Tasty Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter*
  • 3/4 cup of nutella (or chocolate hazelnut spread)*


Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Measure and mix 4 ingredients until flour is well-incorporated. If the batter seems a little crumbly, add a bit of water (between 2-3ish tsp)
  • Roll into balls 
  • Flatten with a cup 
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes (don't over-bake! They may not as chewy and wonderful!)
*If you want more of a  chocolate taste, use these portions. If you'd like a more peanut butter taste, use 1/2 cup of peanut butter and 1/2 cup of nutella. I've made them both ways, but prefer the chocolate taste!
