“Ewwww, peanut butter. Nutella is where it’s at.”

“Oh shut up, Niki. Just keep quiet and cook yourself on low heat in the slow cooker.”

If you’ve been a reader for well…any amount of time on this blog, you’ll know my sister and I-

1. Converse very randomly

2. Rarely say anything positive to one another

3. Appreciate when animals bite or jump on our mother

I always thought Niki was the lone wolf when it came to peanut butter (excluding those with allergies), but after a recent poll on my Facebook page– It seems there are a fair few who couldn’t care for gold in nut butter form and prefer it’s darker….cousin- Nutella

While there are some out there who are team peanut butter OR team nutella, I know there is another team out there which I am proudly part of- Team Nutella and Peanut Butter.

Sorry, I mean Team EPIC.

Characteristics of someone who falls in this team are pretty unique and awesome. They usually have four main ones- 

1. They tend to look like Channing Tatum, but better

2. They are advocates of edible equality

3. They could claim dual citizenship between Italy and America

4. They tend to look like Channing Tatum, but better

While nutella is delicious and peanut butter is delicious they do have one downfall (in my opinion)– Mixed together, they DON’T mesh well. I’ve tried making a sandwich with peanut butter and ‘nutella’ and it just tasted poorly pimped up. I thought maybe it was the sandwiches fault so I mixed a small bowl of melted homemade ‘nutella’ and melted peanut butter and dipped my spoon in it (as you do). I sampled it and swiftly apologised to the sandwich. It wasn’t the sandwiches fault- It was the combination of the two together.

How could one person of TEAM EPIC enjoy the best of both worlds without having to combine them both at the same time? I have your answer. A cookie.

Half nutella.

Half peanut butter.

Marriage.

So these cookies are a marriage of two of my favourite recipes on here- The 4 ingredient Paleo ‘Nutella’ cookies and the 3 Ingredient Grain Free Cookies. I tried this recipe out twice because I’m finally realising not everyone has homemade paleo friendly nutella, not everyone cares to use coconut sugar and sometimes, the classic is all that’s needed. 

Version 1- The basic. 3 ingredients and that’s it.

Version 2- Paleo, gluten free and vegan friendly- Based off the two cookie recipes mentioned above. 

These 3 ingredient Flourless Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies are soft, chewy and the best of both worlds. They take barely any time to whip up and literally both types are my ‘go to’ recipe when I need to bring something to an event or party and have a short amount of time. They literally take 12 minutes in the oven and depending on which version you opt to follow, most likely have all ingredients on hand! 

For those of you who aren’t part of team epic (how dare you), just stick to one or the other- They are both still delicious!

Original Version
  1. 1 cup nutella
  2. 1 cup peanut butter
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 2 cups granulated sugar of choice (I've tried coconut palm sugar, brown sugar and standard white)
Paleo, Vegan and Gluten Free version
  1. 1 cup homemade 'nutella'
  2. 1 cup mind tasting nut butter (I stick to cashew or almond)
  3. 2 cups coconut palm sugar (Can use any granulated sugar- Paleo stick to coconut palm)
  4. 2 eggs (or sub for 2 flax eggs for vegan version)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line a large cookie sheet with greaseproof paper and set aside.
  2. Prepare two large mixing bowls- In bowl one, combine the nutella, 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 egg (or flax egg) and mix until combined. In bowl two, combine the peanut butter (or nut butter of choice), 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 egg (or flax egg) and mix until combined.
  3. Using your hands, form small 2 inch balls with each kind of dough and once completed, get one of each kind, press lightly together and place on the lined cookie sheet. Press each one down with a fork and bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden brown but still soft. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely
Notes
  1. Cookies will seem undercooked once removed but firm up nicely. If you take it out when firm it will be much crispier.
  2. Cookies can be kept at room temperature covered for up to a week. They keep really well frozen for up to 2 months (I usually do that with them).

  1. I’m definitely team BOTH…errrr….epic. Actually, I would probably choose Nutella simply because in college I consumed a disgusting amount of peanut butter so now I don’t usually eat it by itself. …..sad sad sad

  2. Dear Arman, I am definitely a peanut butter girl, but my daughter is all about Nutella. We’d be splitting these cookies all the time. I have not tried them mixed together…I like my peanut butter untouched, with the exception of jelly of course. Have you ever tried Biscoff? Another spread that is big in my house. Have a wonderful weekend my friend, Catherine

  3. I am team Epic, obviously. PB and Nutella will both always have a place in my pantry. Last cookie I ate was on Wednesday. It was one of those skillet cookies at a restaurant and I ate so much my stomach hurt for the next 3 hours. I’m not a huge dessert eater, but apparently once I start I can’t stop.

  4. Dude! You stepped up your game big time here, Arman. I’m impressed with this marriage! I had no idea that peanut butter and Nutella didn’t get along…but I think we can make this marriage work. Or maybe we’ll just eat all of the cookies and the marriage will fall apart. But hey, I’m ok with that if you are. Well done! And that reminds me that I need a cookie right now. It’s been more than 10 minutes since my last one…

  5. How you make such amazingness with only 3 ingredients, I will never know. I mean, I always feel like I need to add a gazillion ingredients so it tastes good. Then you just make me look like an ingredient hoarder.
    Anyway. Pinning these babies!

  6. Mind = Blown. I kept squinting at your pictures, trying to figure out what was actually going on. I had never thought of eating two different types of nut butters together! However I think Nutella likes to be referred to as a ‘hazelnut spread’. Sorry Nutella.
    Very innovative Mr. Tatum!

  7. Team peanut butter without a doubt! I wouldn’t trade it for anything! I say I last had a cookie a few weeks ago–two ThinSlim ones! I have yet to make a healthy peanut butter cookie 🙂 maybe I’ll use this recipe!

  8. Wow! I’M ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE!
    Only a question before I’ll run to the kitchen…
    How do you defrost the cookies? I’ve never tried before and I’m not sure about how it works :/

    Btw, thanks for sharing these PERFECT cookies!

    1. Ohhh Hi! Of course- So I usually freeze half a batch and leave them on the counter for 1-2 hours- I only do that with cookies which are softer in texture as opposed to those which are firmer! 🙂

  9. OK, you probably don’t need one more nut jumping onto the band wagon, but THANKS for this recipe and thanks for turning me on to Sun Butter (in another post). Way better than almond butter as far as I’m concerned.

      1. Had a bit of a challenge with these, my nutella dough was too gloopy to form a ball. How did you get the consistency right on that mixture?

  10. Not sure why, but my Nutella part, just kinda melted down/spread out while my peanut butter side baked fine. And I think I made them too big to begin with. I made about 3 perfect ones (out of 59 – i doubled the recipe). I haven’t tried them yet, but my hubby Tried one & said they were good.

  11. Help! I went to make these, and like a previous comment, the Nutella side of the cookie just spread out into goo, while the peanut butter side baked normally. Did you add something other than the egg and sugar to the nutella? I see you mentioned cocoa powder in a comment, but that’s not in the recipe? I have to perfect these – my kids would give me an award.

    1. Hi Ashley! I’m not sure why it didn’t come out- I did use homemade hazelnut butter for most of mine- I’d recommend adding extra cocoa powder 🙂 I hope it works out for you! Others have had success using chocolate peanut butter so that is an option 🙂

  12. These look great! I have to try the “half and half” cookie! My husband loves nutella and I would too but I have a very limited diet and can’t stomach more than a bite of it. I was able to create a recipe this past month with nutella and peanut butter together. It was actually an accident of sorts. I was working on creating a nutella brownie..but then decided I would do a nutella cookie. I did the first batch and they came out puffed up, with a flat crispy top. You can see my blog for actual comparisons of first batch vs second batch and a longer explanation of the event, but for purposes of this comment I’ll keep it brief. Anyway, I wanted to make something that had the nutella flavor, and the soft, chewiness of almost a brownie. After the first failed batch I checked out the fat content of nutella vs peanut butter and decided that I needed more fat, in the form of peanut butter to enhance the flavor of the nutella. Not ever having the two together, I would have never thought that they wouldn’t mesh so I never gave a second thought of it not working. The plain nutella cookies were just bland and boring. I needed WOW. So, the second batch I added peanut butter and dark chocolate chips. I cooked them until they just cracked on the top and were still soft. They were the WOW I was looking for…and so addicting; I wish I could eat more than a bite! You’ll be amazed at the difference. I wish I could eat the coconut flour and nut butters because everything you have on here looks so good!!!!

      1. Your welcome! I’ll be making the half and half nutella/pb cookies (gluten free, but with flour) soon and post a link! Then I have to try all the different spreads other people talked about on your page. We have way too many cookies!

  13. Arman-Could you post the recipe you use for your homemade nutella, please? Are you aware of any lower sugar versions that turn out well? Thanks!

Have a comment? Go for it!
