Made with healthy wholemeal flour, not too sweet with yummy pieces of hazelnut. Crunchy around the edges and chewy in the middle. If you like it more crunchy (biscuit-like), when baked just turn off the oven and leave the cookies inside to cool. Recipe comes from here.
- 1 1/3 glass wholemeal flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarb. of soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 115g soft butter
- 115g nutella (in room temperature)
- 2/3 glass soft brown sugar (or less, I used about 1/3 glass)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla paste or extract
- 3/4 glass chopped hazelnuts
Roast the hazelnuts on a dry frying pan for couple of minutes- stir occasionally. Nuts should be light brown colour. Take off the heat and place in a bowl.
In a bowl mix flour, bicarb. of soda, salt and baking powder.
Whisk butter and nutella in a bowl until well combined and fluffy, then gradually add sugar, vanilla and an egg. Mix just until combined. Whisk in the flour.
You can place the mixture in a fridge for about half an hour- this will make it easier to shape the cookies. Place spoonfuls of mixture on a lined baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for about 10-15 minutes. When cooked, take out the oven and leave to cool.
This recipe makes about 30 cookies.
