No-Bake Nutella Peanut Butter Nibbles {Recipe}

I’m a later bloomer.  I was first introduced to Nutella about 4 years ago, in the Dominican Republic.  Apparently they slap it on everything, just like I do butter.  It was love at first spread.  We liked it so much, we avoided it like the plague at the grocery store.  Seem weird?! I know, but I know myself and if I have it in the house I will eat it by the spoonful.

We indulged over the last week and have now become so addicted that we’ve purchased two containers…in one week.   Luckily I can blame one of the containers on a cookie recipe I found over at TheKitchn.com

With the main ingredient being Oats, I can technically eat these for breakfast and feel good about the fiber and protein I am consuming with my coffee.  Right?!

I modified one thing on this recipe, I made them “Nibbles” (by using a mellon-baller instead of an ice cream scoop).  For one – I like the word “Nibble”.  For two, it seems like you have less guilt when you “nibble” 23 of these cuties, instead of annihilating 23 LARGE COOKIES.  So there, guilt free nibbles at your service.

Like what you see?  Show us some sugar…

    I too avoid buying nutella because I am the only one in the house that could/would eat it. It’s like little bites of heaven in a jar. I might need to cave and make this recipe though.

    I shared this with my DH this morning and we have been counting the hours until this evening when we can make them. Thanks for sharing!

    How absolutely yummy. I have a bottle of nutella sitting at home right now. And will put it to good use other than just licking it with my fingers.

    I like your thinking on the oatmeal content. That makes those chocolate chip oatmeal cookies in that same healthy breakfast category… right?
    I’m a newbie to Nutella too… and I am going to need to buy another jar since my first one seems to be a permanent fixture under my daughter’s bed. hmm… Thanks Jenny.
