World Nutella Day ~ Nutella Oatmeal Bars

Today is World Nutella Day! Woo Hoo!! As if we needed an excuse to eat a little extra Nutella. :) {If you haven't had Nutella - why not? You can even make your own version if you don't like the ingredients list!}

World Nutella Day was started by Ms Adventures in Italy and Bleeding Espresso. It has grown over the years and now you can check out all the fun and over 700 Nutella recipes at World Nutella Day

In honor of World Nutella Day each year, I like to share a new recipe with you. Last year was Nutella Macadamia Cake. This year? These easy, super delish bars.

Nutella Oatmeal Bars

1 cup flour
1 cup quick oats
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter
13 oz. jar of Nutella {or other Chocolate-Hazelnut spread}

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside 1/2 cup of flour mixture. Press remaining flour mixture into the bottom of an ungreased 9x9x2 inch baking pan.

Set aside 2-3 tablespoons of Nutella. Carefully spread the rest of the Nutella over the top.* Sprinkle reserved flour mixture over top of Nutella.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until top is golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack.

Mix reserved Nutella with water until it reaches a drizzle consistency. Put into a squeeze bottle or just use a spoon and drizzle over the top of the bars. Let set. Cut into bars.

*If you use all the Nutella it makes a really thick layer - not that it's a problem or anything - but you can choose to use less. :) The Nutella is hard to spread around - you may want to heat it to make it easier or thin it with a little milk first. 

Yum. How are you celebrating World Nutella Day? Have you made a recipe with Nutella? Have you made your own version of Nutella {I really want to try making some}?
