This fun recipe for chocolate chip oatmeal cookies with hazelnuts are chunky, chewy and full of nutty chocolatey Nutella like flavor!

“I think these may be my favorite cookie you’ve ever made.” said AJ as he eyed another one of my chunk chocolate chip oatmeal cookies with hazelnuts. Of course this sort of thing comes out of his mouth fairly often, as I tend to bake a lot of things with him in mind. I guess you could say that AJ is my target audience. Which is extremely convenient, as I really need someone to eat my baked goods, especially around this time of year. That’s what you get when your partner is an avid baker.

The addition of oatmeal to the chocolate chip cookie is a pretty common one. What I don’t see a lot of is the addition of hazelnuts to the mix, which is funny since hazelnut and chocolate seems to drive everyone bonkers when it’s the form of Nutella. I had eaten an oatmeal pecan chocolate chip cookie by SF Cookie Lab when I hosted the 18 Reasons Holiday Cookie Swap and I thought it was great. Of course, swapping out the pecans for the hazelnuts gave it that undertone of Nutella that will probably make you go bonkers as well.

In the end I’m a little wary of AJ’s declaration of favoritism. Not that I don’t trust him, but he does have a habit of announcing a favorite thing I’ve baked about once a week. Then again, he did eat about three of these in row and was eyeing a fourth one before I reminded him dinner was in a couple of hours. Either way I know these will be making them into my cookie rotation year round. You should too.

I am liking these-perhaps a tad too much! Consider them baked!

Irvin, these look fa-bu-lous! I love, love, love hazelnuts! They’re much too under-utilized in the world of baking. At least over here. They’re regularly used in baking in Germany where I’m originally from. That’s probably one of the reasons I love them so much – not only do they taste wonderful, they hold sentimental value.
Thank you so much for including my Orange Chocolate Hazelnut Bread in your round-up! Best, Kimberly

I made these as described, apart from subbing walnuts for
hazelnuts, because that was what I had in the house. They were delicious, and a total hit with the family! The browned butter adds an amazing flavor component, and also smells ridiculously while baking. Eight thumbs up!

Oh I’m so glad! Walnuts would make for a great substitute! Thanks for stopping by and telling me!
