Chocolate chip cookies kicked up a notch with peanut butter and nutella


  • 2 1/2 C All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt (+ more for sprinkling)
  • 1/2 C (1 Stick) Unsalted Butter (Room Temp)
  • 3/4 C Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 C Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Lg Egg ((+ 1 Yolk) Room Temp)
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 C Peanut Butter
  • 1 C Chocolate Chips (Semi Sweet)
  • 1/4 C Nutella


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Sift dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt) into a medium bowl and set aside.
  3. Add butter to the bowl of a stand mixer and begin to cream on medium speed.
  4. While mixer is running, add sugar and brown sugar and cream along with the butter until light and fluffy. About 3 minutes.
  5. Add egg and egg yolk, one at a time, and mix to combine.
  6. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Mix to combine.
  7. Add flour mixture, 1/3 at a time, and mix until JUST combined.
  8. Stir in chocolate chips.
  9. Dollop the Nutella all over the dough, then turn on the mixer for about 5 seconds to streak the Nutella throughout the dough without fully incorporating it.
  10. Using a tablespoon, grab a heaping scoop and roll it into a ball in your hands. The warmth of your hands will bring the crumbly dough together. 
  11. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet and press the dough to flatten slightly.
  12. Bake for 10 minutes, then allow to finish cooking on the hot baking sheet for an additional 5 minutes.
  13. While the cookies are cooling, top with extra chocolate chips and a sprinkle of sea salt.


– Pro tip: use a variety of sizes of chocolate chips. My favorite are chunks and minis. – Make-ahead tip: Follow the recipe up until you have the dough rolled into balls. Freeze for up to 2 months and then pop as many or as little into the oven as needed!

-Swap out the peanut butter for almond butter for a peanut free cookie!
