Recipe: No-Bake Nutella & Oat CookiesAuthor: DaisyChubb | Filed under: Recipes
For example: Nutella, Oats, Coconut, Chia Seeds, Nuts, Peanut Butter, Chocolate – but the best part? It’s totally customizable! A classic cookie could have nothing but Chocolate, Nutella and oats. I’ll post my version of the cookie – you guys can post your versions in the comments section! I would LOVE to get some more ideas for delicious No-Bake Cookies.
Here is the most important picture of the post! A rolling boil ensures your cookies set up properly. Cook too long and the cookies get crumbly, don’t cook it enough and they won’t set up! Here’s my trick:
Sometimes these cookies are called “One Minute Cookies” because you have to boil the chocolate mixture for one minute. That means a Rolling Boil, not a piddly little bubbly thing. The way I time it is, as soon as I start to see big bubbles, I time the mixture for One and a Half minutes. This ensures that I get a good fast and rolling boil for the full minute. After the minute and a half, remove from heat and stir in your peanut butter, nutella and vanilla and pour over the dry mix!
You’ll want to mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl like this, the pour your stove-top chocolately goodness over top and mix:
Now drop your sticky mess into spoonfuls on a cookie sheet! Leave them for about an hour until set. Read on below for full instructions!
No-Bake Nutella & Oat Cookies
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (or just use more Nutella!)
1 tsp vanilla
3 – 3.5 cups quick-oats
1/2 cup coconut (optional)
2 tbsp chia seeds (extremely optional, I just added these because I had them!)
Lay out 2 large pieces of wax paper or parchment paper – set on a kitchen table or somewhere they can sit to cool down and set!
In a large bowl, combine oats, coconut and chia seeds (or just oats. Start with 3 cups, you may need a little more!)
In a saucepan, place butter, sugars, milk and cocoa powder. Bright to a boil over medium to medium high heat (I go for about 6 or 7), stirring only once or twice to combine, but once it starts boiling stop stirring and time for 1 and a half minutes. (See up for a picture of what a rolling boil looks like!). Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and nutella until melted. Add vanilla.
Immediately pour over the oat mixture and stir to combine! If it seems too runny, add more oats, but remember that they will set up and “harden”. Spoon onto wax or parchment paper and let sit until set (about an hour).
They get better every day – they should not be crunchy, just chewy and gooey and I can’t think of another rhyming word but they are AMAZING!
