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 saying).
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.
To Make This Nutella Oatmeal You Will Need:
- old fashioned oats
- dark brown sugar
- a pinch of kosher salt
- banana, sliced
Don’t have Nutella? Try peanut butter! Have both? Oh gosh… I see peanut butter-Nutella oatmeal is in my future.
First, start by pouring 1 cup of milk into a small sauce pan.
Then sprinkle in a pinch of salt.
Next, bring to a small boil.
Then reduce the heat and stir in 1/2 cup oats… stir, stir, stirrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Next, keep stirring, remove from the heat every now-and-again to keep it from boiling over.
Once it’s thick and the oats have absorbed most of the milk kill the heat and remove it from the burner.
Then add in 1 teaspoon of dark brown sugar.
Next, add 1 tablespoon of Nutella.
And then stir some more!
Next, pour it into another bowl and top with as many banana slices as you could possibly want.
If this was a beauty pageant, this oatmeal could get a 4 maybe 5 out of 10. But luckily it’s a food blog. And you know that sometimes delicious food just isn’t that pretty. But this IS a wonderful way to start the day!

THANK YOU in advance for your support!
omg. must buy Nutella STAT!
Laurie–a spatula is the way I roll when consumming the last of the Nutella. If the bottle wasn't shaped funny a finger would work as well 🙂
What a great idea for oats!
What a creamy and comforting looking bowl of oatmeal! It is rare that I have a jar of Nutella with only a tablespoon left in it. I usually open it, can't keep my fingers out of it, and throw it away, DEEP in the trash, after I have gone through half of it.
Genius!! (Seriously. Best idea ever.)
I should have made this recipe, this morning. I felt for something chocolatey with banana's but warm and hearty – – instead I made a smoothie 🙁 this would have been SO MUCH better!!
Oh my goodness I LOVE this recipe! This is definitely on my list to try! Fabulous idea!
I eat oatmeal most mornings! How have I never thought of Nutella? Genius! 🙂
Lets be honest – its oatmeal and has bananas therefore one of the healthiest recipes imaginable – a tad of nutella never hurt so therefore, I figure it's fine to eat two or three bowls… 😀
Lovely blog my friend!!!

These sound delightful!
This is definitely going on my to try list! I love oatmeal in the morning, and it's my sons favorite. Add then nutella is genius. 🙂
I am obsessed with Nutella, but not a fan of Oatmeal. I always wish I would like it, because it is so good for you. Maybe this is the answer!
Thats a smart idea to use left over nutella..thanks for sharing
I make large batches of oatmeal to eat for breakfast during the week, and this looks heavenly!
Its OK for me that this is not a ten. It sounds delicious. Starting any morning with this would bring about a good day.
i would lick right off from the bottle..But this recipe looks worth trying..will do it
Yum! Can't wait to try; I don't love Nutella because I am not a hazelnut fan but I recently saw a super simple recipe for "peanutella" on dinnerwithjulie.com so I can't wait to try your recipe with some peanutella. Thank you!
Love this recipe! So glad you decided to put that last spoonful of Nutella to such good use. (I admit, I'd probably have just scooped it up and eaten it straight off the spoon)
I've been looking for tasty ways to get more fiber into my diet lately, and this looks like a definite winner.
I generally just scrape the jar clean with a spoon and EAT it! However, I was making oatmeal and found myself wondering if Nutella in Oatmeal was a bad idea. So… I Googled it, of course! Found your recipe, thank you! I made it with brown sugar & Nutella, per your recipe.
I was still nervous that it would suck (steel cut oats, so they took half an hour to cook), but its not bad.
This is the perfect breakfast (in my not so humble opinion)! I can't wait to eat Nutella again!!!
I recently started to eat oatmeal with banana for breakfast several times a week. I really enjoy it and LOVE the idea of adding some Nutella. A good reason to go and buy a jar instead of forcing myself to pass by and let them sit on the shelf.
This is the best idea ever!!!! I am totally going to have some Nutella oatmeal, and soon! Delicious!
Such a good idea to change from traditional porridge (which I love too!). Many thanks, will try it tomorrow morning, I think!
I had the peanut butter version this morning but I definitely have to try it with nutella tomorrow. Definitely a good reason to actually get out of bed. Thanks!
Yup, had it for breakfast and it was amazing!
