Reading Time: 3 minutes 

Many are of the opinion that adding Nutella to any dessert amplifies its sweetness like nothing else. Well, this Friday 5 February, is World Nutella Day, and to honour the chocolate and hazelnut spread we put together four easy dessert recipes that include one key ingredient –Nutella.

Nutella Cookies

This is a super simple recipe with just three ingredients. The best part is you can add whatever toppings you want to modify the recipe to your taste!

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1 large size egg


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Cover a medium-sized baking tray with baking paper. Mix the three ingredients in a big bowl until the mixture becomes a thick dough. With your hands roll this dough into balls and place them in the tray, slightly press down on them with the bottom of a glass, or your palm. Leave in the oven for 10 minutes more or less depending on how soft you want the cookies to be. Take them out and let them cool for 5-10 minutes and they’re ready to eat!

Nutella and Banana sandwich

Chocolate and banana are a dynamic duo. This easy but scrumptious stack can either be a late-night snack or an after-lunch dessert or even a breakfast accompaniment (don’t judge).

  • 2 slices of bread (wheat/gluten-free/homemade)
  • 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 3-4 Tbsp Nutella
  • 1 ripe banana (sliced)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder(optional)
  • Sliced strawberries (optional)
  • Peanut butter (optional)


Heat a pan over medium heat. While it’s heating, spread a generous amount of coconut oil on the outer-facing sides of your bread, then spread a generous amount of Nutella on both sides of the inner-facing slices. Arrange sliced banana on one side and fold together to make a sandwich. Once the pan is hot, press the sandwich down till they look golden brown and crispy (2-4 minutes). Flip and repeat on the other side. Repeat until desired crispiness is achieved. Slice in half and serve immediately! This would go so well with some milk (animal or plant-based).

Gluten-free Nutella mousse

Mousses might be one of the less popular desserts because it looks like it’s hard to make. But this dessert is so simple to make, a 5 year old (with strong arms) could whip it up easily.

  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 2 cups of cream
  • Some patience
Empty both ingredients in a mixing bowl, beat the cream until it is light and fluffy. Then add Nutella and continue to beat until thoroughly combined. Pour the mixture into individual serving bowls. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. You can also add toppings like fresh berries to create a more luxurious dessert.

Nutella Ice cream bar

With hot summer weather ruling the next few weeks, we thought we’d include the ultimate Nutella cool-down recipe for an ice-cream bar! Eat at home or take it to a picnic, because this fun 2-ingredient dessert is bound to become popular with kids and adults.
