No-Bake Nutella Cookies Essential Ingredients
I love these cookies because you don't need any fancy ingredients. Most of these ingredients are in your pantry.
- Granulated White Sugar: White sugar is not only a sweetener, but it is also responsible for how well the cookies hold their shape.
- Golden Syrup: Golden syrup provides the cookies with a delicious subtle caramel flavor. If you can't find golden syrup, then use corn syrup instead.
- Unsalted Butter: This recipe only requires a small amount of butter for flavor.
- Full-Fat Milk: I used dairy full-fat milk.
- Nutella: The star of the recipe
- Vanilla Extract: For flavoring
- Salt: For flavoring
- Rolled Oats: I used gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats. I find that old-fashioned rolled oats work best for this recipe and help the cookie keep its shape.
Making The No-Bake Cookies
The process of making these delicious gluten free no-bake cookies is relatively easy. Here is what you need to do:
- Prepare the batter: In a medium-sized saucepan, over medium-low heat, add and combine the sugar, golden syrup, butter, milk, and nutella. Bring the mixture to a boil, and let it boil for 1-2 minutes. Then remove the mixture from heat. Letting the mixture simmer for 1-2 minutes allows it to thicken and makes shaping the cookies easier.
- Add the Oats: Now add and combine the oats, vanilla extract, and salt. Let the cookie batter rest for 10 minutes before shaping it.
- Chill the cookies: Align a baking tray with parchment paper. Then, roll one tablespoon of cookie batter into a ball and place it on the baking tray. Repeat until you are out of cookie batter. Then using a spatula, slightly press on the cookie balls to flatten them. Place the baking tray in the fridge for at least 12 hours before serving, or place it in the freezer for two hours before serving.
