Equipment

  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Handheld electric mixer
  • Large cookie sheet
  • Oven

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup or ½ stick Butter softened or microwave for 20 seconds
  • 97.5 grams or ¾ cup Whole Wheat Flour (I used atta/chapati flour)
  • 94.5 grams or ¾ cup Quinoa Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • tsp Baking Soda
  • tsp Salt
  • 75 grams or ⅜ cups firmly packed Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cup Nutella
  • cup Apple Sauce
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and keep aside.
  • In a bowl, mix together the flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Take another large bowl, beat together butter and brown sugar until creamy.
  • Add Nutella, applesauce and vanilla extract and beat well.
  • Add flour mixture and beat until the flour is just incorporated.
  • Using a table spoon or an ice cream scoop, scoop out dough and place it on the cookie sheet. If using an ice-cream scoop, take about ½ a scoop per cookie. Check notes.
  • Dampen fingers and lightly shape and flatten the cookies.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until cookies are set. I baked for 15 minutes.
  • Cool the cookies completely on the cookie sheet and store in an airtight container.

Notes

  • Size of the cookies - The cookies in the picture are slightly bigger than the actually size of cookies. For the first 4 cookies I used ¾ of a scoop and for the rest I used ½ a scoop. Smaller cookies looked more appetizing than the bigger ones. I would say ½ a scoop would yield 16 cookies and using ¾ of scoop per cookie would yield about 10 cookies.
  • Temperatures - Temperature of ovens vary from oven to oven. Check cookies after 10 minutes and continue to bake if needed.
