INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

In another bowl or a stand mixer, add the butter, Nutella, white sugar, brown sugar and beat on medium speed until smooth with a creamy consistency. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.  Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the dry ingredients, then add the chocolate chips and beat until well blended.

Form the dough using about a tablespoon full. Place the dough about 2 inches a part.








Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are golden and just firm around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and then remove with a spatula onto a cooling rack.
