Gluten Free Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you love Nutella and chocolate chip cookies, these cookies have you covered. My daughter loves both so we decided to make these gluten free Nutella stuffed chocolate chip cookies so we didn’t have to make two different cookie batches.

Okay, who are my Nutella fans? Nutella is a hard to resist combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. It is whipped together until it is smooth and creamy. One of these days I am going to make my own…but until then, it is easiest to buy at the store.

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to share these gluten free Nutella stuffed cookies recipe with you. It is truly the best of both worlds!! My kids are totally going to beg for Nutella cookies for now on. (To be fair, I suspect Mr. Fearless Dining will be begging to.)

Our family definitely has a love affair with Nutella. It is rare for me to buy it because it doesn’t last long enough for me to make a recipe with it. That takes the fun out of it a bit for me. I did make these Gluten Free Nutella Linzer Cookies a few times, but that is it.

I don’t have a plethora of Nutella recipes for you, and for that, I am sorry. I know you have a sweet tooth like mine. (And if you are wondering how I know you so well, 9 of my top 10 most popular recipes from 2016 are sweets!) The good news is you can make this Nutella stuffed cookie recipe any time you want!

Are you ready to see how easy it is to stuff cookies?

Here is how to make stuffed cookies:

Chocolate chip cookie dough on a baking sheet with the middles pushed in.

The first step is to mix your ingredients following the recipe directions. Next, use a cookie scoop to drop the dough onto a baking sheet. Push in the middle to make an area for the Nutella.

Dropping the Nutella into the middle of the cookie dough ball.

Drop some Nutella into the cookie dough hole. How much Nutella you use will depend on your cookie scoop size and the hole size.

Adding more cookie dough on top of the Nutella.

Cover the Nutella with more gluten free cookie dough.
