This 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.
