Nutella Cookie Bars

Nutella and I are old friends. We go way back.

For as long as I can remember, there has been a jar of Nutella in the pantry at my house.

My family has long shared germs as we pass the Nutella jar around and we each eat it with a spoon with the milk bottle nearby.

When I was young, my mum would put those little individual packets of Nutella in my lunchbox.

And I love the smell of Nutella when you open up the jar. It’s heaven.

My Nutella filled cookies and my Nutella cookie cups were a hit, so I thought it would be fitting to make some Nutella and cookie bars.

These bars are just basic vanilla cookie dough with swirls of Nutella through them. Look at how chewy they look.

Chewy, soft cookie. Gooey, chocolatey, smooth Nutella.

Match made in heaven.

Adapted from Milk and Cookies.

220g unsalted butter, softened (1 cup)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups plain flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 jar Nutella (you won’t need the whole thing)

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a 9 x 13 inch tray with baking paper.

Beat the butter and sugars together until light and creamy. Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla and mix well.

On a low speed, mix in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until just incorporated.

Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared tray.

Dollop 6-8 tablespoons of Nutella over the cookie base. Use a spoon or a metal skewer to spread it and swirl it around and into the cookie.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before cutting. Makes 20 bars.

  1. I love this post!!

  2. These came out a bit thick, so the texture was soft instead of chewy. I used the tray size you suggested but will make these again using a larger tray so it spreads a bit thinner. very tasty nevertheless. Nutella flavour was so good.

    • Hey Anisha, thanks for the feedback! Let me know how you go with a bigger tray. Mine is a little bigger than 9 x 13 because I’m in Australia and it doesn’t convert exactly, so maybe that’s why! Glad you liked them :-)

  3. The MOST delicious blog out there! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Tried these they came out well except the butter I used did have salt which obviously made them a bit on the salty side. That aside they were great. I would make them again but make sure I follow instructions and use unsalted butter! Thanks for the recipie
