    • Thank you Anna 😉 I am allergic to hazelnuts and have never tried Nutella! I’m not sure about the substituting in this recipe because Nutella has more sugar than peanut butter. Do you have a Nutella cookie recipe that is similar to a peanut butter cookie? I would try using a recipe that works with Nutella. Please share your results!
