When I was a little girl, my mother took me to Europe, just the two of us, for a special mother-daughter experience. We stopped in Paris, which is undoubtedly one of the most magical cities in the world. We saw the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, walked up and down the Champs Elysee, witnessed the elegant style of Parisian women and were introduced to Nutella. We didn’t eat a lot of sweets in our house growing up, so being allowed to enjoy this heavenly chocolate hazelnut spread on vacation with my mom was an irresistible, special treat.

I don’t buy Nutella very often. If I did, the kids would get so obsessed they’d probably ask me to bathe them in it. So when I do use it, my family knows it’s a special occasion. In these pancakes, the addition of Nutella takes them from good to unbelievably scrumptious. They’re obviously aren’t on the every day rotation of breakfast items in our house, but when I do make these pancakes, the experience of eating them reminds me of a spectacular culinary adventure enjoyed with my mom.

Why not try them this Valentine’s Day for breakfast? The kids and my hubby are waking up to them for sure!

  1. My kids devoured this, my older toddler was feeling a little low with a runny nose, and his face lighted up when he got the aromas from breakfast =). Both loved it, and me too.

  2. Before I finally deiecdd to go back on WW I had bought a double pack of Nutella from Costco! 1 1/4 jars left so I am going to save your recipe for a time when I can better deal with being around this cake and then will make it for work! Looks absolutely YUMMY!!!

  3. I make most everything I bake with white whole wheat flour, including this recipe and I think it tastes just fine.
    My kids love these pancakes…I make them as a treat once in a while. They seriously smell like cookies baking, not pancakes!

  5. Just made these to freeze. The kids love them. They’ll be perfect to just pop in the microwave for breakfast when school starts next week. BTW, love your website.

  6. Weelicious has a Chocolate Hazelnut Spread recipe. It might be a sub in for the store bought Nutella…

  7. Wow! These were delicious and the sauce is divine! I am totally in love with your website 🙂

  8. You’re definitely kliilng me with this bread! My mom used to make pull apart breads and they were my favorites not because of the taste, but because they are SO much fun to eat! So take pull apart bread and add garlic and chives and what do you have? A fun and heavenly delight! These are delicious!
