Ingredients for Nutella No Bake Cookies - butter, cocoa powder, milk, vanilla, Nutella and quick oats.
  • Salted butter. I prefer salted butter in this recipe.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder. Make sure you are using unsweetened.
  • Milk. Whole milk will give the cookies the richest taste, but I have used reduced fat in a pinch.
  • Vanilla extract. Pure vanilla is best.
  • Nutella. You can use your favorite brand of hazelnut spread.
  • Quick oats. Don’t use old fashioned oats.

Pro tips

  • Line the baking sheet. Cleanup is much easier when you line the pans with parchment paper, aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat.
  • Milk. You can swap the milk for a nondairy milk if desired.
  • Don’t stir while boiling. Once the cookies boil, it’s important not to stir them during the last 60 seconds.
  • Immediately add the Nutella and oats. As soon as you remove from the stove add the Nutella and combined. Then add the quick oats. Don’t wait to add these ingredients.
  • Only use Quick Oats. Old fashioned oats have a different texture, and the cookies won’t taste the same.
