So, today I want to share a healthy holiday cookie recipe. It’s festive, delicious, and inspired by everyone’s favorite sweet spread: Nutella.
But unlike conventional Nutella, this recipe isn’t loaded in sugar, soy, and unhealthy palm oil. Instead, it’s rich in protein, high in polyphenols, and PACKED with flavor.
- 2 cups toasted hazelnuts (or 1 cup 100% hazelnut butter)
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons powdered stevia
- 2 pastured or omega-3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon *vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon *sea salt
- ½ cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder (not dutch)
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 oz chopped bittersweet chocolate (at least 72%, ideally 85% cacao)
Preheat oven to 325. Oil a cookie sheet (or line it with parchment) and set aside.

Add chopped chocolate, mix well, then scoop into tablespoon-sized balls (about the size of half a golf ball), 12 per cookie sheet.
Bake for 5 minutes, then flatten with a spatula, if you prefer a flatter cookie. Cook an additional 5-7 minutes, until firm on top, then remove and let cool before serving.
