tasty tuesday : nutella crumb bars

I have a confession to make... I have an unhealthy love for nutella. Nutella on sandwiches, bananas, strawberries, crepes, cookies, and just on its own by the spoonful. Seriously, this stuff is so good. So, when I stumbled across this recipe, I HAD TO TRY IT. & let me tell you, it was probably the best decision I made all week!  (& yes... I have 2 jars of nutella at home right now...it's that bad)
{  i  n  g  r  e  d  i  e  n  t  s  } 

1 1/4 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter (softened)
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups of Nutella

optional : raspberry jam

{  i  n  s  t  r  u  c  t  i  o  n  s  } 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar and salt. 

Add in softened butter & mix well. Set aside 1 & 1/2 cup of this mixture for the topping.

Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Press the topping (MINUS the saved 1 & 1/2 cup!) into the bottom of the pan. Spoon the nutella over the crumb mixture. 

*optional* Spread a thin layer of raspberry jam on top of your nutella. I did this for half my batch just to experiment and it turned out absolutely wonderfully! The raspberry adds a lovely extra sweet tartness to the bar that I fell in love with.

Top with the remaining crumb mixture.

Bake for 35 minutes or until the crumbs on top are golden. 

&&& ENJOY!

Top this treat off with a tall glass of milk, don't tell your friends, and eat it all. I mean it. Do not share this, you will regret it! ;) ....Juuuust kidding, go share this with everyone and become everyone's new best friend.
They'll love you, I promise.

Om nom nom.
