Nutella Oatmeal Cookies
- Prep Time: 20 mins
- Cook Time: 15 mins
- Total Time: 35 minutes
- Yield: Makes about 25 cookies
- 200g (7 oz) unsalted butter, softened
- 250g (1 1/4 cup) caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 325g (2 cups plus 2 tablespoons) plain flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 pinch fine salt
- 50g (1/2 cup) rolled oats
- 200g (7 oz) Nutella
- flaked sea salt for sprinkling (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
- Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. You can do this with a bowl and wooden spoon, but it is easiest and quickest with a handheld electric beater, or with a stand mixer and flat paddle attachment, on medium speed.
- Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
- Slowly beat in the flour, baking powder, salt, and oatmeal. At this stage, you should have a thick cookie dough.
- Add the Nutella to the cookie dough and use a wooden spoon to lightly mix it through the cookie dough. You don’t want to fully incorporate the Nutella into the dough, otherwise you will not achieve a marbled look on the cookies. Also, the Nutella will continue to be worked into the dough when you roll them into cookies.
- Pinch off a small piece of dough and roll it into the size of a large walnut. Place the balls of dough onto the baking tray, but space them apart generously as they will spread as they cook.
- Gently flatten each ball of dough.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden.
- Leave the cookies to rest on the hot baking tray for about 5 minutes to firm up before eating, or before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
