Allison got to witness my obsession with Nutella take shape… first it was a spoonful of the delicious spread… and then it became a spoonful of nutella with some peanut or almond butter… so I figured – why not take that combo and bake cookies? And really, if they hadn’t worked out – no biggie. Sometimes mistakes are best dunked in cold milk…
I’m also going to make these into ice cream sandwiches – bake them and fill them with some vanilla ice cream – nothing wrong with that! … and Allison – they’re even gluten free – so you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of my labour :0)
1/3 cup nutella (pretty much an entire small jar of the stuff)
1/3 cup almond butter
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup brown sugar
1 egg white
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup white chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl (no need for fancy mixers – a wooden spoon will do).
Bake for 12 minutes on a tray lined with wax paper. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan for about 5 minutes.
Remove from tray and allow to cool on a rack.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
