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? πŸ˜‰

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup nutella
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup white flour
  • 1.5 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 2 Tbsp cookie butter or nutella for topping


  • Preheat oven to 325F, spray a large cookie sheet with non stick spray.
  • With an electric mixer beat together the applesauce and sugar for 2 minutes, add the egg and continue beating, then add the Nutella while still beating.
  • Using a spoon mix in dry ingredients and chocolate chips. Spoon cookies onto cookie sheet and in the middle of each cookie add 1/4 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.

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

  2. 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.

      Hi Jenny, I can’t give you an honest answer sorry as I have never baked with gluten free flour, all I can suggest is giving it a try πŸ™‚

    • I bake with GF and the only difference is whatever u make it’s a little drier is the only difference

  3. What ate you referring to when you refer to cookie butter as an ingredient?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Trader joe’s carries a cookie butter, if your in Canada I think Presidents choice does one, it is a spread like nutella, look with your nutella’s at the grocery store you might find one

  4. I have to admit, when I spooned these onto the cookie sheet I was skeptical. I wasn’t convinced they were going to cook in just 8-10 mins, and wasn’t sure how they were going to turn out. Boy was I blown away! A great tasting, light cookie with that little indulgence in the middle. My daughter (7) and I love them!

      Hi Dana, I totally get what your saying because I thought the same thing when I created the recipe… wasn’t sure if they were going to be a hit or a flop and was pleasantly surprised, so glad you and your girl enjoyed them πŸ™‚
