These gluten-free no bake Nutella balls are easy to make.

Gluten Free Nutella Balls


  • 1/3 cup finely chopped toasted hazelnuts*
  • 3 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 tbsp gluten free cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups non-contaminated rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup goat milk (can use regular milk as an alternative)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp Earth Balance vegan “butter” (can use real butter as an alternative)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • In a saucepan combine the vegan “butter”, goat milk, white sugar and cocoa powder.
  • Heat on medium heat and stir.
  • Continue stirring and add the Nutella and vanilla.
  • Bring mixture up to a boil and then remove from the heat.
  • In a small bowl whisk the hazelnuts, oats and salt.
  • Add the hazelnut mixture to the saucepan and stir until combined.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop to make balls of the chocolate cookie.
  • DO this while the mixture is still warm.
  • Place balls on a parchment lined small cookie sheet and then place in refrigerator to set.
  • *I bought de-skinned hazelnuts at the Italian Store and toasted the nuts in a frying pan on medium heat on the stove. I let the hazelnuts cool before putting them in my mini food processor and chopping them finely.
  • Enjoy!
