This is a fantastic one bowl, mix everything together type of recipe.

I found this easy fast recipe on Warm Toasty Muffins and when I realised I had half a jar of hazelnut spread in the cupboard I couldn’t resist trying them. Warm Toasty Muffins is a  blog filled with great recipes and lovely photos that inspire you to get into the kitchen. You won’t be disappointed if you check out her blog – Thank you Mely!

Mely said they’d be made in a flash and they were!

Ingredients : makes about 30

160g plain flour

1/2tsp baking powder

225g hazelnut spread (or Nutella)

2tbsp milk

1 lightly beaten egg

 How to: Put everything together in a large bowl and using a fork and then your hands, mix everything together until you have a sticky dough. With lightly floured hands break off small bits of dough and roll into balls, place the ball on a baking tray. Leave a bit of space round each ball as they spread slightly during baking. There is no need to flatten the balls, just put them in the oven at 180°c for 10 mins and hey presto!

These keep in an air-tight tin for several days and were even very good after a week when they’d dried out a bit and became really crunchy!

If you prefer flatter, less cakey biscuits, flatten the balls slightly with a fork before baking, they’re equally good this way!

  1. They do look tasty! I think I would choose the more cakey version, soft and comforting.

  2. These cookies delicious, and the short list of ingredients makes me want to try them even more. I have actually never eaten Nutella, but now I have the perfect excuse to buy some.

  3. Thank you for the shout-out! I love how cute and round the first batch looks.
