Sometimes you just need want something sweet. 
Can I get an amen?

Enter the Kitchen Sink Flourless Cookies which more accurately be called....

"Almond Peanut Butter Nutella Coconut Chocolate White Chip Flourless Cookies"

Oh, yes I did...
I couldn't help it.

I saw the original recipe for these flourless cookies in a Clean Eating Magazine last summer.  I made them and blogged about them here and they were so good.  I had a small problem today though.  I only had about a half cup of almond butter.  After a quick glance through the pantry, I found a jar of Nutella that was begging to be used.  I wish I had taken some photos so you could have shared this adventure with me; but, I didn't.  I was busy creating something. It looked pretty crazy and I wasn't absolutely certain that it would work.  I kept going though. 

I took the half cup of almond butter and added a little less than a half cup of Nutella.  I was concerned that the Nutella would not act the same as the almond butter since it is not a complete nut butter and has other ingredients. So I grabbed the jar of natural peanut butter from the fridge and topped off the one cup measurement with that.   I mixed that up really good and added the rest of the basic ingredients according to the recipe....

Sucanat, Baking Soda, Sea Salt and an egg...

and then I threw in the rest of a bag of Ghirardelli Classic White Chips that was left over from my Christmas baking and I threw in a big handful of Hershey's Mini Chocolate Chips.  Because we are huge coconut fans here, I threw in a handful shredded coconut and mixed it all up together.

They were better than the first time that I made them.  I will be making them again....probably tomorrow....right after I go to the store for more ingredients  They were that good.

For the original recipe, you can go here.  I highly recommend my changes.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This post is linked up with Sweets for a Saturday.


  1. Oh my Candace, that sounds like a sugar rush for certain...But they do look quite yummy!

  2. those look amazing candace! I am a cookieholic so I am all on board for these with no flour! Awesome!

  3. You've done it again! They look great! Do you think it would be okay to leave out the coconut since CH is allergic?

  4. I am SO making these! I'm always trying to stay away from flour, and Nutella is among my daughters' favorite things, so this is a recipe I'll definitely be using! Thanks. :-)

  5. Those sound sooooo good to me! I *need* something sweet every day! I am in Heaven up here in MA - my favorite candy store had a visit paid to it right after I stepped off the plane :) If you ever find yourself in the Easton/Canton/Hanover areas, make sure you stop into Hilliards!

  6. Looks good. I guess this would be better than making raw pie dough and eating it.

  7. AMEN!
    There's no comparison to the original, I'd be grabbing quite a few of yours, they look amazing!

  8. Oh lord. These are made up of everything I want to have in my kitchen but can't because I'll eat them by the spoonful! Delicious.

  9. yummy yummy! I love sweet stuff myself...I could skip the rest of the food groups!

  10. Amen!! Those just look way too tempting. I need those now! I have a major sweet tooth right now. But we just got back into town after being gone for a week and there is nothing good to eat. I still have to get to the store to restock! May have to make sure I have all of these ingredients! ;)
