Wake up and smell the...Nutella.

I am not a morning person.  I love mornings once I get up and get moving, but actually *getting up?* Not a fan.  Give me my quilts, and pillow, and snuggles, please.
baked nutella oatmeal...with a SECRET ingredient!
Because I'm a little slow going, easy breakfasts are my friend.  This one is going to be your friend, too.

This baked Nutella oatmeal comes together in a snap, bakes up quickly, and will be sure to start your day off on the right foot...morning person or not.

The recipe also has a secret ingredient...

...no, not this.  I do use this in the recipe, but you can substitute any milk.

The secret ingredient is...

...yep.  Baby Food.  Baby food prunes to be exact. 

Don't be scared.  The prunes keep the baked oatmeal from drying out and they also add sweetness without adding extra sugar.  The sugar in the Nutella is the only sugar in the recipe!

Cover and refrigerate leftovers; reheat in the microwave.

{Feel free to add a few chopped almonds to make the oatmeal prettier.  If you want to be really decadent, drizzle some Nutella over the top.  Mmmm...}
