Nutella Banana Cookies

This is a great recipe that a friend introduced to me while we were cooped up in the apartment during Hurricane Sandy. It's off the blog 'Chef in Training' and would be an excellent cookie for a holiday cookie exchange! Not to mention it only has 9 ingredients making it both inexpensive and easy (one of which is Nutella... quite possibly my favorite chocolate product in existence).





  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking soda and salt together in a large bowl.
  3. Cut in shortening
  4. Beat in mashed ripe bananas and egg.
  5. Mix in oats.
  6. take a knife and "slice" nutella into batter with a knife. Don't mix it in completely, the stripes are what make them pretty!
  7. Spoon "drops" onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 8-10 minutes. (Note: this is a lot softer than normal cookie dough and will not form balls, hence spoon “drops”)
  8. You can frost these cookies if you would like too! Here is my easy buttercream recipe: 1/2 cup butter-softened, 3 Tbsp. milk, 2 tsp. vanilla, 1 box (16 oz.) powdered sugar. Beat all ingredients together. You can add more milk or powdered sugar to get it to the consistency you want it.
