Nutella, Nutella

Ever since I had the Nutella calzone from Cibo last week, I've been craving Nutella.  Before Cibo, the last time I ate/thought about the chocolaty, hazelnut-y spread, I was shopping in junior department stores and carrying a cartoon inspired pencil case.
However, a recent trip down a certain aisle at a grocery store, has now made me the proud owner of a jar of Nutella.  This occasion is 20+ years in the making and as such, needed to be marked by a special treat.  Done & done.  Introducing...Nutella Oatmeal Crumb Bars.

Now to share the love....

Nutella Oatmeal Crumb Bars


1 1/3 cup Quaker quick oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3/4 cup Nutella


Preheat oven to 350F.  Line 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.  Set aside.
In large bowl whisk together oats, flour, sugar.
In smaller bowl mix together melted butter and maple syrup.  Pour over oat mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.
Pour 2/3 of oat mixture into prepared baking pan.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from oven.
Meanwhile, heat Nutella for 15 seconds in microwave safe dish to soften.  Spread Nutella over baked oat mixture.  Crumble the remaining 1/3 oat mixture over Nutella.
Return to oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes.  Turning once halfway.
Allow bars to cool.  Transfer to fridge.  Cut into squares.

  1. When you say "Turning once halfway". Do you mean rotating the baking dish (for even spread of heat) or to flip the miture?

    1. You are correct, I did mean rotate the pan. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did :)

  2. These bars look perfect for breakfast or to satisfy hunger pangs!

    1. Yes, they are perfect anytime of day, and best two at a time ;)
