Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies

Pop Quiz! Which is better: Nutella or Peanut butter?

Don't worry! I couldn't make this decision either! They are both so delicious in their own, beautiful way! So, in celebration of World Nutella Day, I set out to find a new Nutella recipe to try! I was babysitting and recruited the help of an ambitious 4 year old. When I asked her what we should make she said, "Peanut Butter!"
I kindly replied and told her we were going to make something with Nutella... She wouldn't take it...all she wanted was peanut butter! And then it hit me! Duh! Why not combine these two amazing taste-superpowers and create one cookie!

So we were off! Ready to tackle the task of combining a peanut butter cookie with Nutella. I knew we would have to have some sort of stabilizing ingredient, but was feeling like giving the cookie just a bit more nutritional boost and decided to use oatmeal instead of just flour. 

1/3 cup brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup Nutella
1. Preheat oven to 350*; Cream sugar, egg and peanut butter together.
2. Add salt, vanilla, and baking soda
3. Stir in oatmeal
4. Gently swirl in Nutella (this will create beautiful swirls of delicious Nutella throughout the cookie)
5. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet
6. Bake for 8-10 minutes
     -you should get about 24 cookies

Somebody liked the dough! :)

So warm, so gooey, so peanutbutternutella-y... 

First she wanted peanut butter on crackers....     Then Nutella on crackers.....        
But couldn't decide which was better-so like any genius, she mixed and had them together! Brilliant! :)

Nutritional Info: (1 cookie- 1/24 of recipe)
