    I love Nutella, but never tried with with oats… it must taste really nice and give a lot of energy in the morning, specially when waking up for a whole day workingnon stop (we start our season of paella catering events now so thi will be a good idea to start the day with!)
    Thanks for the recipe! :)

  2. Very yummy yet classic combination in this dessert. Would work with bananas as well :)
    If you like an organic version you can sabstitute Nutella with this Hazelnut spread
