I'm a little busy this week getting ready for Cub Scout camp so I'm so happy that Pamela is here to share a great recipe with all of you!
Take it away Pamela!
I am so excited to be guest posting here at Cups by Kim, I love looking at her blog, she has such awesome recipes, and her pictures are so beautiful. Thank you for the opportunity Kim. My name is Pamela and I blog over at Pamela's Heavenly Treats , I am a wife, mother of 6, homeschool teacher and I have a small Healthy Cupcake & Cookie business. Everything that I make is made with 100% Whole Wheat Flour and my secret ingredients. You will not know that you are eating healthy when you taste these treats.
I decided to make these cookies, and I am glad I did, the entire family liked them, they get a thumbs up, and the best part is you can eat them single or as a cookie sandwich, all you need is a glass of milk and you will really have a heavenly experience. I saw this recipe over at Megan's Cookin and I just tweaked it to make it a little healthier.
1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup nutella
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup of chocolate chips
Set oven to 350
Cream butter and sugar in a mixer on high speed, scraping the sides of the bowl often.
Beat until light and fluffy.
With the mixer on low, add the egg and vanilla.
Add the Nutella and mix well.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix on low speed until all the ingredients are incorporated the dough is smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop into balls and place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes
Let cookies cool about 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
You can leave the cookies singles, or spread about a teaspoon or so on the flat side of half the cookies, and top with another cookie to make a Nutella Cookie Sandwich.
I want to give a big thank you to Kim for allowing me to share my healthy treat with her readers. Please stop by Pamela's Heavenly Treats to get some healthy cupcake and cookie recipes. I also have an etsy shop where you can get my cupcake and cookie mixes.
