These gluten-free nutella stuffed peanut butter cookies combine two of the best ingredients in baking: hazelnut spread and peanut butter. Soft, gooey, and perfectly decadent, these cookies will satisfy any sweet tooth.

Let's make gluten-free nutella peanut butter cookies together! Gather your ingredients.

Dollop or pipe the nutella into small ½ inch circles, until you get 12 total. Place in the freezer for at least an hour.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine gluten-free flour blend, xanthan gum (if using), baking powder, and baking soda.

In a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and light sugar.

Cream for 2-3 minutes, until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula as needed.

Add the vanilla extract, egg  and salt. Mix until smooth.

Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until just combined.

Repeat with the remaining flour, stirring until no more streaks of flour remain.

Stir in the chocolate chunks until combined.

Using a cookie dough scoop, fill the scoop halfway full with cookie dough. Stick nutella disk in the center.

Fill the scoop the remaining way with cookie dough so that the nutella is completely covered.

Place dough on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cookie dough and nutella.

Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are just set. Immediately sprinkle with flaky sea salt.

Let cool and enjoy!
