“Everyone is kneaded out of the same dough but not baked in the same oven” – Yiddish Proverb
These are my very first no bake cookies . No bake cookies are a great option when you have a cookie or chocolate craving (or a Nutella craving in this case) and are in no mood to switch on the oven . You could of course have a piece of candy or a spoonful of Nutella ( I ALWAYS stop at ONE spoonful ;-P) , but these cookies take just a little bit more of your effort and time , and taste so much more yum !
It takes only a few every day ingredients – milk, butter, cocoa , sugar – for the cookie base. You bring them to a boil on the stove top and let it heat for a couple more minutes. This is necessary so that the chocolate mixture holds the cookie together so don’t rush through this. You add in the Nutella and vanilla . And them dump in heaps of oats . I used quick cooking as I had them on hand , but many recipes use good old fashioned rolled oats or cornflakes instead.
I tweaked this recipe ever so slightly . Quite happy with the end result. I mean its chocolate + butter + sugar + Nutella , its a cookie that comes together in minutes , you have one pot to clean , its crunchy and delicious – whats not to be happy about
See? 10 minutes and you have cookies! So easy even a kid can make them . Perfect for the days you want to give your dear oven a break. The heavenly taste of Nutella is there and all the wholesomeness of those oats! These taste way too good for something thats way too easy!
I made these for July’s Creative Cookie Exchange where all of us are resting our ovens with delicious No bake cookies! Check out below what the others have made!
