Nutella Cookie Bars
I love a good cookie bar! And I love Nutella! So naturally I have to pair the two together. I’ve done it before with these double chocolate chip Nutella cookies.
And the results?
I came up with a new cookie bar recipe that left plenty of room for Nutella. I sweetened these cookie bars with only brown sugar and left the rest to the Nutella. The balance was magical.

Achieving soft cookies
I wanted these bars to be soft. Not too chewy like my cookies. These are delicate bars, fit for your Valentine. To achieve the light soft texture, I omitted the butter that is normally found in a cookie bar. In place of the butter, I used melted coconut oil. Yep, these cookie bars are incredibly soft.
These Nutella cookie bars are much lighter and far less tooth-achy than most other cookie bars. As with all of my cookie recipes, these received the hubby’s stamp of approval. He loved how they weren’t overly sweet.
If you like Nutella, you’re also going to love these cookie bars. They are super simple to make and even much easier to devour!

Nutella Cookie Bars
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a 13×9-inch baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat together the sugar, Nutella, Coconut oil, and eggs with an electric mixer until well blended. Beat in the milk.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir with a whisk. Add the flour mixture to the Nutella mixture. Beat the mixture just until combined. Spread the mixture evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Top with hazelnuts and chocolate chips. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Allow the bars to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.
