PEANUT BUTTER NUTELLA COOKIES

Personally, I feel like the title speaks for itself here. If you love peanut butter, or Nutella, or especially both, drop everything and make these cookies right now. Soft, textured, with gooey swirls of chocolate hazelnut spread. And as if that weren’t enough, they’ve got two superfoods, honey and flax seeds, mixed in. Enough said.

You can make these cookies easily with a stand mixer or an electric beater…just a few simple steps. Use an ice cream scoop to get them all the same size, but don’t make the scoops too heaping, you want them to cook all the way through before the bottoms burn.

I love these beautiful scrumptious cookies with a cold glass of milk (or a glass of red wine, let’s be honest). And as with most cookies, I think they’re even better after a 10-15 second zap in the microwave.
