It’s my favorite time of the month….Secret Recipe Club time. I had the pleasure this month of reading through Christina’s blog Oven Adventures. Christina is a mom of 2, loves to bake and lives in a suburb of Vancouver, Canada. She has so many tasty recipes that you’ll definitely want to check out: breads, muffins, cookies, cakes, pies, tarts, truffles, holiday treats, brownies, blondies, quick breads and so on.
I’m sure you might be surprised to see a cookie recipe here today, as many of you know I’ve been off sugar for well over a month now. We’ve also just purchased our first juicer, and have been busy juicing everyday. So I found it quite funny that on day 4 of my juice fast, I scrolled through her recipes only to tempted by sweets that I can’t eat right now. My middle daughter came to the rescue and picked out these no bake Nutella cookies. And I couldn’t have been happier! No bake….so hubby and I didn’t have to smell them baking, and Nutella which is surprisingly something I can take or leave.
As you can obviously see, dark cookies, brownies or anything with chocolate is a food photographer’s worst nightmare. Nothing I could do but snap a bunch and pick the best. Try not to let the image fool you. Though I couldn’t taste test them, my 3 girls devoured them over the course of 2 days. I’m sure they’d have finished them in one if I’d let them. They were also the perfect thing for my kids to whip up….quick, easy and only a few ingredients.
- ¼ cup butter, diced into small cubes
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
- ¼ cup Nutella
- almost 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1¾ cups oats
- Line 2 baking sheets with wax paper.
- In a medium saucepan, melt butter and sugar. Stir in cocoa and and milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. After a boil has been achieved, continue stirring for 3 additional minutes. Constantly stir to avoid scorching.
- Remove from heat and stir in Nutella.
- Add in oats last, and stir well.
- Drop by tablespoons full onto wax paper to harden. Refrigerate to speed the process.

I have made cookies like this before with peanut butter but had never thought of using Nutella. Sounds great! And just think of a cookie with both peanut butter and nutella- yum.
