No Bake Nutella Cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 10 large cookies, more smaller cookies, depending on the size you form them
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick - 4 oz) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ⅔ cup Nutella
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons orange zest (optional)
  • 1 cup flaked/shredded coconut, preferably unsweetened, toasted
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats or gluten-free oats
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, sugar and cocoa. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and let he mixture boil for 2 minutes..then reduce heat to medium low and stir until sugar is dissolved, about another minute or 2.
  2. Stir in the softened butter, Nutella, salt, orange zest (if using) and vanilla extract. Stir until butter is completely melted, then stir in the oats and toasted coconut, coating both completely.
  3. Line a 12 x 17 baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat, then scoop your desired size of cookie onto the sheet..spacing them about 1 inch apart. I made huge ones...about ¼ cup a cookie which gave me 10 cookies, but of course you can make them much smaller for a larger yield.
  4. Let set, then enjoy!
