1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 c butter
1/4 c brown sugar or coconut palm sugar

2 c rolled oats

Preheat oven to 375. Line two baking sheets with parchment or silicon mats.

Combine flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in a bowl.

In a stand mixer combine butter and sugar and mix until smooth and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add Nutella. Mix in flour in 3 batches on low speed. Add oats.

Scoop 1 TBSP rounds onto baking sheets and bake for 8 – 10 minutes.
