Nutella Oat-Nut Bars Recipe

nutella oat nut bars recipeThis Nutella Oat-Nut Bars Recipe was developed because my daughter and I are big fans of Nutella.  Making a snack bar featuring not just Nutella, but also included bits of chocolate and hazelnuts really drive those flavors home, seemed a great idea.  Since Nutella itself is quite sweet, I kept the cookie portion mildly sweet.  Due to the nuts and oats these are fortifying enough to grab as a breakfast snack.

    I love Nutella so much–these look absolutely delicious! But I have to say, I’d probably make my portions a little bigger than a piece of fudge. 😀
