Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies are super moist and completely fool proof. You’d never know they were made out of beans! 

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies laid out on a countertop.

You’d never know these cookies were gluten-free, let alone made out of beans! I’m serious!

Now, I don’t have Celiac’s Disease and have no reason to live a gluten-free lifestyle. But when you have friends or family with a gluten-free lifestyle it can be hard to come up with something to treat them to. I’m generally a skeptic about gluten free recipes. They often use expensive, harder to find ingredients that I never have on hand. Chickpea cookies and brownies are all the rage these days so I decided to give my hand at it to see if I could come up with a gluten free cookie that I can bring to my gluten-free friends as well as enjoy myself.

As a lover of all things Nutella I knew that would be the key to creating a gluten-free cookie I could devour. They are soft, moist, and you would seriously never know these cookies were gluten-free, let alone made out of beans! It’s ridiculous how many peanut butter or chocolate cookies end up dry as a rock. Not with these babies. They are always moist and I love that about them. I also love that I can feel a little better about eating the whole batch since they are made out of beans. It’s practically a lunch right? Shhh, I tell myself lots of crazy things! 🙂

Chef’s Notes:

The dough will be very soft and sticky. If you are having trouble working with the dough try chilling it in the fridge or freezer.

If you want complete control over what goes into your cookie and have it be oil-free, try using homemade peanut butter and homemade nutella.
