Nutella brownie cookies

July 21, 2016

What is not to love about these huge nutella cookies. They have the texture of a soft warm brownie and a delicious cookie butter center. I promise if you love all things chocolate they will become your new favorite cookie to bake up and they are so easy to make. Only 3 smart points each, did I mention they are big cookies? 😉

Spoon cookies onto cookie sheet and in the middle of each cookie add ¼ tsp of cookie butter, you can use Nutella for middle if you don't have any cookie butter, but I find more stores are carrying it now and it will be in the same section as your peanut butter.

    Would chocolate PB2 work in place of the Nutella? They look yummy

    My daughter has a gluten allergy, do you know if it works as well with gluten free flour? I’m on WW and love that they’re only 3 points, but want to be able to cook for the whole family.
