Nutella Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

       Nutella Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

     Seriously, I think I might have a problem!!  I absolutely love Nutella, you might have noticed that, I put Nutella in any recipe I can get it in!  I know it's fattening, but in moderation, it enhances every recipe and makes it BETTER!!!   So, it's been a while since I have made cookies, and who doesn't love A good cookie; especially one with Oatmeal and Nutella in it, it's a win, win!  My son claims he hates Nutella, so funny, I just told him to eat one and he assumed they were chocolate....15 cookies later I told him they were Nutella,he said "As long as Nutella tastes like Chocolate I'll eat your food!"  Wow, wasn't that generous of him?
     I just wanted to address a baking and flour concern, I bake with Pamela's Bread Flour ,, so if you use other flours I can not guarantee how your dessert will turn out; so please do some  trial and error adjustments on the flour, baking soda, baking powder and baking times.  I hope this helps everyone out, Thanks for all of your support.

-1/2 cup softened butter
-3/4 cup Nutella
-1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-2 large eggs
-1tsp pure vanilla extract
-3 1/3 cups whole GF oats
-1 1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-2 1/4 cups Pamela's Bread Flour
-2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

 To Make:
 Preheat the oven to 325 degrees, spray your pans with Pam. Bake for 10-12 minutes depending on your oven, cool for 5 minutes and remove.  Do not over cook, the edges are crispy, and the center is moist and delicious.  This recipe makes 26 cookies and stores for 4 days in a sealed container.
-First  cream the butter and brown sugar together, then add the Nutella and mix well.
-Now add the eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt, mix them together and scrape the sides.
-Then add your oats and mix, scrape, next add the flour, mix well until the flour is all incorporated.
-Lastly add the chocolate chips and mix in.
-DO Not refrigerate.
- Now roll these babies into balls, then press lightly in the middle, it helps them to spread a little....or if you like a fat cookie, don't press on the middle.
-Then Bake and eat!!   

This is one of my Favorite things! I absolutely love, love,love Franz Bread! I can finally have Grilled Cheese and French Toast again! Thanks Franz!

These sound great, I will try them - especially as they are easily converted to diary free

OMG I grew up in Italy and lived and breathed Nutella. I would have it on pasta if I could. This sounds like a great cookie recipe. I have a wonderful Nutella pizza recipe in my cookbook. I know you would like it.
