Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

I have been on a major hazelnut kick lately.  First I made my No Bake Vegan Nutella Bites, then it was my Vegan Nutella Granola and now these yummy homemade nutella thumbprint cookies.

Next, I think I might try some hazelnut milk.  I filled these cookies using my Homemade Vegan Nutella.  I love thumbprint cookies.  You can really go in some many directions.

    1. I went back and read the instructions and I noticed that I never even put the instructions to grind the oats and almonds. I edited the post and it should make much more sense now. Thanks for catching that!
  1. Made these this weekend! Used semi sweet chocolate chips instead of the nutella filling. WHOLE family from kids to grandparents LOVED them! Grab some milk and enjoy!
    1. Hi Eryn! I am so sorry. That was one of about 10 blog recipes that went in my cookbook. I apologize for removing it, but it was part of my contract agreement. :( You can check out the book here. It is filled with mostly brand new recipes and it's under $12.
