Coconut Nutella Oatmeal Cookie Recipe! |

I love Nutella. I eat it by the spoonful. And I love baking with it! So here are my absolutely delicious coconut Nutella oatmeal cookie recipe.

I'm a big oatmeal cookie fan. I love the rustic feel of the oats and the crunchy chewiness of the cookie, but I don't like mine with raisins, only chocolate chips.

Here's my spin... I experimented by making these cookies into thumbprints, and because of the stiff cookie dough, they held their shape quite well during baking. Then I spooned in a little Nutella and sprinkled big coconut flakes on top.

They had the cinnamon oat-y taste I love. They were definitely crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. The Nutella gave them just the right amount of gooey chocolatey-ness, and there was just a hint of coconut to make them interesting. These is definitely my new go-to oatmeal cookie recipe!



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks) at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Mix the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and oats, in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg, butter, sugar, and vanilla to a second mixing bowl. Beat on high for 2-3 minutes until creamy. Mix in the dry ingredients in three batches until combined.

Place tablespoon sized balls onto a silpat or lightly greased baking sheet, and using your thumb or finger make indentations in each one.

Bake 8 to 9 minutes until they just start to brown.

When just out of the oven,  use a measuring spoon to give the thumbprints a little more shape.

Spoon Nutella into a ziplock bag. Snip a small corner of the bag, and pipe the Nutella on to the cookies. Shake the cookies a little to get the Nutella smooth.
