Nutella Oatmeal Cookie Bars

With Thanksgiving being yesterday I just can't help but feel overwhelmingly lucky for the wonderful life I get to live. I have a wonderful husband, we are surrounded by wonderful family, we have a roof over our head and food on our table. Life really is good. Do you know what else is really good? Yep you guessed it, these bars! I absolutely love them with Nutella on top! My husband would prefer them with dark chocolate. Just know your options for topping these babies can be changed to suit your personal liking.

Nutella Oatmeal Cookie Bars
Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time:25-30 minutes
Servings: 9

2 cubes (1 cup) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup sifted flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup Nutella

Cream butter, sugar and egg. Add flour then oats. Mix well. Spread in greased 9" x 9" pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Remove pan from oven and let stand for a couple of minutes. Spread Nutella on top. It spreads easier as it warms up a little on the warm bars. When cooled, cut into bars. I usually refrigerate them to get them to cool faster to cut into bars, but then I like to eat them at room temperature.


  1. I wholeheartedly agree with the things your thankful for. They all top my list as well. The cookies included. I'd take mine with Nutella instead of chocolate. Caramel sounds good too. Thanks for the delicious recipe.

  2. Hi, may I know how many grams/tablespoons are 2 cubes of butter? Thanks!
