three nutella cookies stackedI’m calling these breakfast cookies because they are a cross between a cookie and a muffin top and I totally ate them for breakfast. I’m giving you permission to do so as well! I’m nice like that. Plus there are oats tucked inside there so it is basically begging to be eaten for breakfast.

Nothing fancy here- just 4 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry: flour, eggs, Nutella, and oats. I used whole wheat flour because I’m super healthy like that. Also because I may have eaten my weight in Mega Stuffed Oreos.

If you forgot that it’s Valentine’s Day today you still have time to whip these up for your sweetheart. ♥

    My kids have a long weekend, so I think I’ll make these for breakfast for them. I can’t help but wonder what these would taste like with my favorite spread, though – Biscoff! Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Laurie — February 11, 2014 at 4:30 pm

    I made these today with dark chocolate peanut butter since I’m not a Nutella fan, but my 3-year-old declared them “not good” and I’m inclined to agree. Maybe I overbaked them, but they came out dry and tasteless. 🙁

    Leanne — September 25, 2014 at 7:42 pm

    use banana instead of eggs and it will make it even more of a breakfast treat! Can’t wait to try these!

    Dena — January 27, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    Could I just substitute Peanut butter for the nutella? what other substitutions would work? My kids are not fans of nutella for some reason 🙁
