You will not find a simpler from scratch recipe that delivers such bang for your buck in terms of taste.
I found this recipe on sheknows.com and was apprehensive – could it really be any good with just three ingredients and using just one bowl?
As my pantry was Nutella-free I headed off to buy some of the chocolaty, nutty spread. In Aldi – where I go maybe twice a year – I found a palm oil-free version of Nutella. Hurrah! I boycott anything and everything that contains palm oil. No food is worth the death of countless animals including orang-utans so I was thrilled to find this product.
I made the recipe and was instantly smitten. In fact, I made them again a few days later to replenish the empty cookie jar which had been full a mere few days earlier. FYI, the Aldi version is great and you’ll get two batches of this recipe from one jar.
UPDATE: I have just found out that Aldi has taken the incomprehensible step of now using palm oil in their product. Suffice to say I won’t be buying Aldi’s product again #boycott
1 cup Nutella
1 cup plain flour
LET’S GET TO IT:
Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with non-sticking baking paper.
Pop all ingredients into bowl of electric mixer and beat until just combines.
Roll walnut size balls then place on trays. Use a fork to make a criss-cross pattern.
Bake for 7-8 minutes, until just firm on the edges.
Remove from oven, place cookies on cooling trays.
