EASY 5-Ingredient Nutella Almond Butter Cookies
I recently discovered that Nutella has just about the same amount of fat as almond butter, which gave me the idea to add them to my nut butter cookies. I played around and found using half Nutella and half almond butter is the perfect combination which created the perfect texture and flavor. Enjoy!
EASY 5-Ingredient Nutella Almond Butter Cookies
These cookies are amazing!!! And so easy to make, you don't even need a mixer! Only 5 ingredients including Nutella, Chunky Almond Butter and Cocoa Powder.
Yield: 24 cookies
Serving Size: 2 cookies
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup chunky almond butter
- 1/3 cup raw sugar
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- cooking spray
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and place the racks in the upper and lower third of the oven.
- Spray two nonstick baking sheets lightly with cooking spray or use a silpat.
- In a medium bowl, mix the nutella, almond butter, cocoa powder, sugar and egg until well combined with a spatula.
- Spoon 1 level tablespoon of the mixture about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets. Flatten the mounds with the tines of a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies.
- Bake until golden around the edges, about 8 to 10 minutes, switching the position of the sheets halfway through baking.
- Let cool before removing. If you don't use a silpat, it may change the baking time so I would keep an eye on them.

Delicious. I subbed truvia brown sugar for raw sugar (2tbsp + 2 tsp according to conversion guide on back of pkg) but only got 18 cookies and works out to 3 pts each on the WW recipe builder. Anyone else only get 18 cookies?
These look good. Do you think I could use chunky peanut butter? I have some to use up.
Big hit with the family !
Great cookies! crispy edge and soft inside. I swapped the raw sugar for white sugar because the raw sugar doesn’t melt while baking, so it stays sandy and I dont like to chew on pieces of sugar. Works super well with white sugar, not too sweet at all!
It made 15 small cookies for me, not 24.
These were a hit at Christmas with my Gluten Free and non Gluten Free family. I did dust them with a little powered sugar to dress them up a bit for Christmas. I found that they were even better a day or two later when the chocolate flavor was even stronger. So simple and so good.
Did I make the cookies too big? I made small cookies and barely got 14?!? Sorry just curious as it says it yields 24
Are you able to substitute stevia or trivia for the sugar? Trying to reduce the sugar gram count for my husband who has diabetes. Am trying to find a treat for him that he can enjoy and the rest of the ingredients are right up his alley. I may try on my own but hate to waste the ingredients in case it wouldn’t work.
These are delicious! I made small cookies and only got about 15-17 cookies.
If you double the recipe would it still turn out the same?
Instead of 1/3 cup raw sugar can I use "Stevia in the raw" or regular Stevia sweetener?? If yes, how much Stevia in the raw would i need for the recipe??
These cookies look incredible–I am adding them to a long list of your recipes I haven't yet tried. I love absolutely anything with almond butter-so thanks for sharing this!
These are my go to quick dessert recipe. I substitute almond butter for peanut butter and they are amazing. Thank Gina!!!
Can we use honey instead of the sugar?
I was so excited about these! I made them for a cookie swap, but was bummed that they were so crumbly. Not sure if I did something wrong, or was just expecting something different. The flavor was delicious, but the cookie was very dry. Any ideas? thank you!
Mine were a little flat too, but the kids loved them!
Made this a couple days ago. Delicious!!!!! Will definitely be added to my recipe box. Thanks!
These look so good and I'm loving this almond butter Nutella combo.
I baked these cookies and they were really good. The only issue I have is they are a bit grainy. The raw sugar didn't really dissolve and you can tell you are eating the sugar. Are they supposed to be like this or did I do something wrong? Thanks!
These look so delicious! Anything with Nutella in and I need it!
Simple reciepe and excellent cookie! I have not been disappointed by any of SK's reciepes including this one. Keep them coming…
Mother and I are neighbor so we share the cooking. Well I just made these and had mama to taste and we both love them and both had the same idea making ice cream sandwiches. Being it is Christmas we have some seasonal peppermint ice cream it will pare perfectly with them. Yes it will add a few more points but it is Christmas so it is a treat. It will be great to have on hand when my sister and her family arrive from out of state. Thanks for the great recipe.
I want eat
So good! It was really difficult to not spoon up/ lick the whole batch instead of baking it.
Other than adding sweetness to the cookies, what does the sugar do (as in, is it a bonding agent or something)? I'm wondering if you can make them without sugar. Thoughts?
I am wondering the same thing. Did you try it without sugar?
I have been experimenting. I made a batch with no sugar. The texture stayed the same but the flavor was a little bitter for my taste. I then tried a batch with 2 tablespoons of sugar. The taste was just right for us. I use chunky peanut butter and keep a batch in the freezer for wheny husband and I NEED a little something sweet.
I made these with 1/4 cup maple syrup. I added 1/2 tablespoons whole wheat flour to make up for the liquid difference (and half a tsp vanilla extract). They are wonderful!
Oh my goodness. I can't even imagine how amazing these probably are. I guess I'll have to make them…
Love this recipe. These look delicious! Anything with nut butter has my name on it.
Love this recipe as there's only 5 ingredients! Gina, what's the texture of the cookie?
Soft yet crisp, like a peanut butter cookie.
This sounds so delicious! Definitely going to try this ♡
I didn't have Nutella or cocoa powder, so I used Justin's maple almond butter and added a couple large spoonfuls of trader joes cookie butter. I also reduced amount of sugar down to 4 tbs since I figured the cookie butter already had some sweetness to it. The edge result was a chewy, nutty cookie with a slight gingerbread flavor. So good!
Wow! I never knew this was just a simple recipe to make. Will surely try this one. Thanks 🙂
Only 5 ingredients. I love recipes like this. Pinned it:)
Can you substitute raw sugar for truvia baking blend sugar ?
Those looks delicious!! A "healthy" way to eat Nutella??? I'm in!!! 🙂
Are you inside my head? Because I was absolutely planning to use Nutella to make up cookies like this when you posted the ones the other day. Thanks for doing the hard parts for me. 😉
These are a few of my favorite things…
I'm a huge fan of nutella… Pinning!
That looks yummy and still healthy! Thanks for sharing!
Trader Joe's makes some amazing cookie butter that I'd be willing to put into this recipe, but it certainly wouldn't be "skinnytaste" anymore. 😉
What is cookie butter? Never heard of that and unfortunately there isn't a Trader Joe's near by to go and look for myself. I like learning of new products and techniques.
Donna, oh friend, cookie butter is amazing! Most places will have a cookie butter by Biscoff in the nut butter aisle, so try there. 🙂
Did u have any success with the cokkie butter. I just made some and they came out pretty flat.
This sounds delicious. Definitely making these in the near future. So easy!
They look amazing! I am going to be trying them out soon.
Is something missing. It doesn't include nutella or cocoa powder in the write up.
In a medium bowl, mix the almond butter, sugar and egg until well combined with a spatual. Spoon 1 level tablespoon of the mixture about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets. Flatten the mounds with the tines of a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies.
Obviously missing in the write up…however, one can only assume…add the nutella and cocoa powder (amounts mentioned in the recipe) to the bowl and stir. There ya go! Come on people….really?
Wow- we aren't all seasoned bakers. And what we've been happy to learn from Gina is that it's about precision. Not sure the rudeness of your response is required. Then again, when you are anonymous… Guess it's easy.
You tell it Melanie! Anonymous is rude.
Amen DP n Melanie
Sorry I missed that, I will adjust now.
I have tried 3 times to post a comment so hoping I am not posting multiples…
What is a better brand of almond butter? What is the difference between white sugar and raw sugar? Find raw sugar at health food store?
Here is an awesome sugar guide. I found raw sugar at Kroger.http://www.thekitchn.com/a-complete-visual-guide-to-sugar-ingredient-intelligence-213715
Do you think it's possible to use agave nectar instead of sugar? Any idea what measurement you could use for the nectar?
How about peanut butter in place of almond butter?
Yes, you can use any nut butter.
Can you use regular white sugar?
YUM! What an easy cookie recipe, and they look SO good.
