Gluten-Free Nutella & Peanut Butter Heart Cookies

Gluten-Free Nutella & Peanut Butter Heart Cookies

With Valentine’s Day right around the cor­ner, I have choco­late on the brain. This doesn’t really work well with my New Year’s res­o­lu­tions, but some­times you just have to roll with it. In my fam­ily we eat a lot of peanut but­ter and my hus­band loves peanut but­ter and choco­late together, so these cook­ies are sort of a no-brainer.

This is also a super easy recipe to make with kids. I mea­sured out all the ingre­di­ents before­hand so my daugh­ter could throw them in the mixer. She also got to expe­ri­ence Nutella for the first time, so basi­cally it was a really good day for her.

I tried to make the heart shapes a few dif­fer­ent ways but ulti­mately decided that if you use a small ice cream scoop and cook them in balls, it’s very sim­ple to cut out the hearts when the cook­ies are warm and fresh out of the oven. Use the scraps as ice cream top­ping. Yum!

P.S. These are gluten-free, although no one will notice or care. They are irre­sistible. And if you haven’t tried coconut peanut but­ter before, well…you’re welcome.
