These cookies are amazing!!! And so easy to make, you don’t even need a mixer!
I recently discovered that Nutella has just about the same amount of fat as almond butter, which gave me the idea to add them to my nut butter cookies. I played around and found using half Nutella and half almond butter is the perfect combination which created the perfect texture and flavor. Enjoy!

1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 cup chunky almond butter
1/3 cup raw sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat the oven to 350°F and place the racks in the upper and lower third of the oven. Spray two nonstick baking sheets lightly with cooking spray or use a silpat.
In a medium bowl, mix the nutella, almond butter, cocoa powder, sugar and egg until well combined with a spatula. Spoon 1 level tablespoon of the mixture about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets. Flatten the mounds with the tines of a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies.
Bake until golden around the edges, about 8 to 10 minutes, switching the position of the sheets halfway through baking. Let cool before removing. If you don’t use a silpat, it may change the baking time so I would keep an eye on them.
