If you’re like me, you’re absolutely addicted to Nutella. Although eating it straight out of the jar is a solid plan, part of its appeal lies in the fact that it tastes good in so many different recipes. That way, you can eat it multiple times a day and never get sick of it. Here’s nine of the best recipes that let you indulge in a little bit of heaven three times a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
#SpoonTip: Skip the knockoffs and use the legit spread for all of the following recipes. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
If you want to start your hazelnut and chocolate-filled day with something lighter this homemade Nutella granola is perfect for you. Sprinkle a bit on a bowl of Greek yogurt and pretend that you’re being healthy. The bananas do actually provide a ton of health benefits and the sugar will give you the energy you need to power through your 8 am class, so you don’t need to feel too guilty about this one.
Being low on time doesn’t mean that you have to skip out on an indulgent breakfast. These delicious Nutella croissants take only thirty minutes to make and the teeny tiny size makes them easy to take on the go.

Skip waiting at Dunkin for your daily doughnut fix and make these hazelnut-stuffed versions right at home. This recipe features a hybrid doughnut muffin that will satisfy any carb-y craving, plus a gooey Nutella core. It’ll save you at least a week’s worth of breakfast take out money, considering this recipe makes 12 muffins (You can use it to buy even more Nutella, duh!).
On those days when breakfast for lunch is a thing, this cinnamon roll sandwich offers a sweet and savory combination. They’re easy to make, portable, and the best thing about them is that you can substitute any of the ingredients and customize it to your own preference. If your sweet tooth needs a break, sub in pretzel pieces for a salty kick.

Who says you can’t meal prep with Nutella? On those days when you’re on the go, make these peanut butter and hazelnut spread pinwheels in the morning with your breakfast and then pack them in your lunchbox, just like mom sending you off for the first day of kindergarten.

As you finish off your day, pair a cup of hot cocoa with any of these recipes for the ultimate combination. Better yet, make your hot chocolate with Nutella and indulge even more. For all of you worried about your healthy, don’t you fret. Make your hot chocolate with dark chocolate instead and take in all the health benefits.
If you haven’t noticed by this point, Nutella and bananas are a logical combination. So it makes sense to combine the two and another cult classic, good ole PB, into your usual dinner time favorite: a burrito. This sweet twist on the burrito is perfect after a long day of classes, work, or sitting around eating these recipes all day.
Yep that’s right, breakfast for dinner, or brinner. The quintessential college dinner is a big plate of waffles. Make them even better by stuffing them with Nutella, by following this super simple recipe. It’ll take you less than 20 minutes, which means you have more than enough time to finish your homework for the night. Or, watch the next episode in your Netflix queue.
If at this point, you’re wondering “What about a healthy dinner option?” then this may be the recipe for you. I mean, strawberries are healthy, right?
