 Classic no bake cookies get a Nutella twist in these Peanut Butter Nutella No Bake Cookies. Nutella lovers will go crazy over these super easy cookies.

I sit around with a jar of Nutella and a spoon way more than I would care to admit. I mean, it’s a good thing Costco has such an amazing price on giant jars of Nutella because otherwise I may go bankrupt with my Nutella habit. Actually putting the Nutella in with something makes me feel better about how much I consume. Especially when it involves a whole grain like oatmeal. It’s healthy, right? Well, maybe not with all that sugar and butter, but whatever, it’s better than eating it by the spoonful.

Anyway, I was in one of those moods for dessert, but felt the guilt of the spoon, so I decided to make some peanut butter and Nutella no bake cookies. Oh heavens, it’s way too easy and way too delicious. I took my classic recipe for no bake cookies that I’ve been using for years, and worked in Nutella.

This recipe is super easy to make and is perfect for an adventure in cooking with kids. My kids eat peanut butter Nutella sandwiches as their go-to lunch of choice, so this recipe is right up their alley. The first step in the recipe is on the stove, but I have found that this is a perfect way to introduce kids to the stovetop. All they have to do is stir. Just keep a close eye on them and give them fare warning about the heat and they are good to go! My kids have been cooking on the stove as young as 4. I promise, they can do way more than you think!

Be sure to use old fashioned roll oats in this recipe. I have found that they give a far better texture than instant oats which are a bit too small and powdery. And then there’s steal cut rolled oats that are far too chewy for a no bake cookie.

So if you are going to have your kids cook, have them give it a watch too! I have a huge library of cooking videos over there so feel free to stay a while and check them out!

The best…nicest & easiest recipe I have found in my 76yrs! Bravo!

Has anyone tried this with double the Nutella and no peanut butter? If so, how did it turn out? I’m wondering if it’s too sweet. I’m assuming it would set up, although it might require another minute or so of cooking.


Love how chewy they are! but could i bake the cookies to make them crispier / crunchier?

No bake dessert is the BEST kind of dessert. Especially during the summer. Love the video. You’re such a joy to watch, Rachel. 🙂

Tried this recipe and very disappointed. The “cookies” never set – I even put them in the fridge for an hour – and left me with a tray of oat-studded goop you could only eat with a spoon.

I found if you cook the milk mixture slowly it sets better. I cook it on medium low heat. When I tried boiling the mixture on high heat is when I ran into the gooey mess.
