Easy 5 Ingredient Nutella Cookies with Sea Salt (Gluten-Free)

The texture of this cookie is dense, fudgy, and chewy and all kinds of amazing.  These cookies remind me of my go-to holiday cookie recipe, chocolate crinkles, which are pretty elaborate and time consuming to make.  It’s kind of unbelievable that these Nutella cookies take all of 30 minutes to prep and bake, and yield such a similarly decadent and beautiful cookie.

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 Tablespoon Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • Flaked sea salt for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add egg and brown sugar to medium mixing bowl and beat with an electric hand mixer for 30 seconds. Add Nutella and flour and beat until combined. Dough will be thick. Cover with plastic wrap and place dough in freezer for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place balls at least 2 inches apart on parchment paper lined baking sheet or ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until just set. Cookies will be soft and a bit gooey looking. Remove from oven and sprinkle with sea salt. Let cool for a minute or two on baking sheet before carefully moving to cooling rack. Store cooled cookies in air tight container.
