Nutella Peanut Butter Chewies

For just the year and a half that we lived in Southern California, I picked up some really delicious recipes!  One of them was from a sweet friend for flourless peanut butter cookies that you couldn’t stop eating.  This recipe is based off of that.  I thought I could just add some Nutella to the mix and end up with the same consistency of cookie, but instead these turned out nothing like cookies and everything like chewy pieces of heaven.

Don’t be fooled.  They look like cookies, yes, but when you bite into them they are thin and airy, with a crispy outer crust and chewy center.  Interesting, I know.  You’ll just have to make them and see for yourself!

  1. Nutella AND peanut butter AND cookies?? OH MY. Yum!

  2. Hi Nikki,

    I love and read your blog since – I don’t know – 2010/2011 and never posted before. But THERE delicious chewies must be recognised 😉

    I will make them for me and my dad and I will try to make the with nutella and almond cream for my girlfriend.

    Thank you anyway for this recipe and all the other great ideas!

    Greetings from Germany

  3. Oh neat. Here’s another greeting from Germany. 😀

    Anyway, these look pretty magical. I’ve tried something similar and wasn’t impressed but there wasn’t peanut butter involved. That changes everything!

  4. These definitely look super chewy! Those are my favorite cookies – soft and chewy in the center. I looooove the combination of nutella and peanut butter. Just sounds so decadent and sinful – awesome cookie combo 😉

  5. Looks good! I like the short ingredient list! And peanut butter and Nutella sounds amazing!

  6. That ingredient list is cray cray! I definitely need to give these a try.

  7. Oh these cookies need to make an appearance in my kitchen!

  8. omg! i need to make these immediately!! greatest combo ever – nutella + pb! thank you thank you thank you for sharing :)

  9. I love this blog! Just discovered it and will follow now :) Can’t wait to see more 😀
    Take care!

  10. These cookies look so easy and delicious. Thanks for posting! A great recipe to try this weekend!

  11. These were so perfectly chewy and fabulous! I’m excited to make them for my friend who’s allergic to gluten.

  12. Any ideas for peanut butter substitute?? My boys love Nutella but one has a peanut allergy. Thanks!!

    • Hi Alli,

      I’m sorry, I have no ideas for a peanut butter substitute since I haven’t tried any, myself. Maybe another reader can pitch in their thoughts? I know Jif just came out with new cashew butter and almond butter, if he doesn’t also have nut allergies and only peanut allergies? But, the resulting consistency of the chewies could be different…

      Let me know if you try anything! :) Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

  13. I am currently making these and I was wondering if anyone else came upon the fact that the oil oozes out of them from the pb and made soggy yucky cookies. So I added some oatmeal. Still oozing out. Anyone have this happen?

      Hi Krystal,
      Sorry you are having problems! Did you use natural peanut butter? I’m guessing if you did, that might be why you’re having problems with the oil…

    • I also used natural peanut butter. But I added 2/3 cup of flour after reading your comment. They turned out great. I’m sure they are more dense than they should be but, they taste GREAT.
