Peanut Butter and Nutella Cookies, gluten free

The one thing that seems to be constant when I become pregnant is the need for peanut butter.  If at anytime--and this has been most of the time over the last two months--I start to feel queazy, I long for a peanut butter fix.

In searching the internet and pinterest I found this delicious recipe.  I have changed it just a hair and added my own special ingredient but the original recipe can be found on a blog titled Laurens Latest which another blog titled The Spiffy Cookie shared too. 

I am pretty sure I have made these too many times to count.

They are easy.

They are tasty.

They are my new favorite.

I added the uncooked oatmeal to add more texture and to add more fiber.  I think the pairing of the three flavors works well. 

Tell me what you think?  A keeper or what?  

Have a wonderful start to your 2013 Spring, I know I will.

Recipe:  Peanut Butter and Nutella Cookies, Gluten Free

1 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter  (260 g)
1/4 cup white sugar (55g)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar (55g)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Nutella
1/4 cup uncooked old fashion oats (20g)
Course Salt, optional

Preheat oven to 350.  Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a large bowl blend peanut butter and sugars.  Add egg and vanilla.  Blend until smooth.

Stir in oatmeal.

Scoop onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and transfer to wire cookie rack to cool.  While still hot, use something to make a well in the top of the cookie.  I have an old spoon that works well.

Place Nutella in baggie and pipe into the well of each cookie.

Let finish cooling and then serve or eat them hot, either way they are moorish and you may find yourself making a second batch immediately...LOL

  1. che meraviglia, sono di una golosità infinita!

  2. These look delicious. I will have to try them!

  3. Mmmm these just might be my new favorite too! Cookies, pb, and nutella-3 of my greatest loves :)

  4. These are not gluten free, oats have gluten in them. In order to be gluten free they can not have: wheat, oats, rye or barley.

    1. you need to buy gluten free oats,its only because of cross contamination.I have celiacs

  5. Hey Sherron--I added this recipe to All Gluten-Free Desserts ... All the Time. I know everyone will love these cookies. I added a note that folks should use certified gluten-free oats. I think some folks still might not know that such oats exist and are safe for most on a gluten-free diet. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe, Sherron!


  6. Seriously -- these sound amazing! Can't wait to try them. Found them through Shirley's site gfe-- gluten free easily.
