{Banana+Nutella+Cracklin'OatBran=WonderfulDeliciousGoodness} Tutorial

This is one of my favorite snacks that I wanted to share with you all!
Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 Banana
  • Nutella
  • Cracklin' Oat Bran Cereal {or something else yummy and crunch like granola}
  • Butter Knife
  • Plate
  • A hungry tummy!

Here's how you make this scrumptious snack:
  1. Assemble supplies.
  2. Peel your banana.
  3. Break your banana in half {breaking is better than cutting for the next step}.
  4. Take one half of the banana and gently squeeze until you see the top third of the banana separating from the bottom two thirds.
  5. Take off the top third of the banana and set aside.
  6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 with the other half of the banana.
  7. Spread Nutella on the larger parts of the banana halves.
  8. Add some Cracklin' Oat Bran cereal pieces on top of the Nutella.
  9. Replace the tops of the banana halves.
  10. Enjoy you yummy snack! {"Yummy yummy! In my tummy!"}

So, did that all make sense? I hope so! Do you all have any tutorial tips for me? I wanted to do this mini, easy tutorial to practice for future, more complicated tutorials so I'd love some feedback! I'd also love to hear if you try this and love it! Enjoy your yummy snack and have a wonderful week!

Also, head over to my last post and tell me a little bit about yourself and your blog! Also, check out some of the other cool readers! There are some funny stories in the comments. :]

Have a wonderful week everyone!


  1. How awesome! That looks so delicious! I made the meet up announcement today, so you should check it out (plus there's something else there for ya). :) hope you can make it!!

  2. Mmmmm! I love all of those ingredients almost obsessively! I can hardly wait to try this

  3. that looks amazing!! i love nutella!

  4. Haha. Thanks! You'll have to let me know if you ever try it {and like it} even though you hate Nutella!

  5. We do something similar around here! Roll bananas in melted chocolate and then crushed nuts/oat bran. Stick a popsicle into the bottom and then freeze for an hour! Yummy summer treat - frozen banana popsicles :) We slice open the bananas and layer on peanut butter before we roll them in chocolate sometimes...seriously the best thing ever!

  6. mmm, this looks delicious and so so fun! what a good idea!

  7. OMG! Nutella! Yum!!!! I love Nutella!

  8. Woah, woah, woah. I'm so in love with this idea. And I even kind of hate Nutella. You did good, girl. Real good.

  9. you had me at nutella, i love anything nutella! adorable blog newest follower :-)

  10. oooh I love anything involving bananas. Not the biggest fan of nutella {I think I'm the only one haha}, but this looks absolutely Delish!!!! nice tutorial.

  11. i have a taste aversion to bananas. one time i was super super sick, and my mom was forcing me to eat so i wouldn't die, and apparently she thought a banana was a good idea. i ate it, and instantly threw up in my handy dandy barf bucket.
    i will never again be able to eat a banana.

    but nutella is hands down my favorite dessert :) especially when combined with oreos and peanut butter

  12. Looks good! My girls love anything with nutella.

  13. Looks amazing love!!

    PS: I mentioned you in my blog today :) xoxo.

  14. Um, YUM!! I really think you combined my 3 favorite things into one snack. But I ran out of nutella a couple days ago... grr!

  15. Haha. That's why I make this! I'm a lazy cook otherwise! I loved that you did the Nutella+Greek Yogurt for your little picnic the other day. I haven't tried it yet but I've already told lots of people about how delicious it probably is! Haha.

  16. It is delicious! And that would be so crazy to get diabetes while you're pregnant. Has it been a hard change?

  17. I was just telling Ariana {above} that you could probably make it with any kind of fruit that you like. I just happen to love bananas and Nutella so that's what I make it with. Haha.

  18. I did make it up! :] And I bet you could make it with something other than bananas...apple slices maybe? Or apple halves might be less messy. Haha. It would really be good with ANY fruit...I think. :]

  19. I love this because it looks simple enough for me to actually do! I'm all for simple snacks and recipes! Plus, nutella + bananas = heaven.

  20. This is going on my list of things to eat a lot of after the baby is born and the gestational diabetes (hopefully!) goes away! It looks SO GOOD!!!

  21. I'm with Ashlyn, Nutella is basically love in a jar... If I liked bananas I'd totally try this recipe! (Did you make it up?!)

  22. I'm on board with any food that has nutella in it. Even if it involves bananas. Yummmm.

  23. Yum! I'm loving the pictures to follow along to! Add this to my ever growing recipe list :)

    I'm now following! Have a good weekend!
