In this Nutella oatmeal recipe; creamy Nutella melts into a warm batch of stove top oatmeal. Topped with sliced bananas is my favorite way to eat this!

What do YOU do with the last of your Nutella? Do you eat it right off the spatula? Spread it on a graham cracker and top it with sprinkles?… or maybe you just clean the inside of the jar with an apple wedge? Actually all three are excellent options, trust me {especially the second one, just sayin’}.

BUT have you ever had it in your oatmeal?

On the days I have to work at the hospital, I try to have a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast. It’s quick to whip up and I like that because I only have a few minutes to spare, and I’m full for like ever… okay so like 3-4 hours… but still. It’s great.

This oatmeal happened by accident, I was cleaning out my pantry and saw a jar of Nutella that only had about a tablespoon left in it. So instead of throwing it away… I put it in my oatmeal. Bingo-bango.
