Nutella Inspired Cookies

If you like Nutella, you’ll love this Nutella Inspired Cookies recipe!  These taste just like Nutella cookies and contain all the flavor of the beloved Italian hazelnut-chocolate spread, without the refined sugar, dairy, soy or artificial flavors.  My local supermarket carries hazelnut flour but if yours doesn’t, you can purchase it on-line or substitute almond flour for a delicious chocolate chip cookie.
