I was introduced to the awesome that is Nutella last January. Since then, I’ve slowly been leaving my old peanut butter ways and finding more chances to bring Nutella into day-to-day life. I was looking over which cookies to include in this year’s Sweets for the Season when it hit me. Why not use Nutella in my favorite cookie of all? If the Santa Claus in your household is a fan of Nutella and a fan of No Bake Oatmeal Cookies, I can pretty much guarantee extra presents for the good little boy or girl who leaves Nutella No Bake Oatmeal cookies out with a glass of milk.
If you have someone on a gluten free diet on your cookie list, good news. This recipe can work for them. If you use Gluten Free Rolled Oats, these cookies are safe! Just be careful to avoid cross contamination with other items in your kitchen. Just as an fyi, regular rolled oats are not acceptable for many people on a gluten free diet. There are often trace amounts of wheat from the processing.
