Preheat oven 350 and line a square baking pan with foil. Grease the foil with cooking spray and set aside.

Pour mixture into the prepared pan.
Heat the Nutella in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir until smooth and runny. Drizzle on top of the batter in the pan and swirl around with a knife if desired. Tap the pan on a hard surface to even out the chocolate.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until set and bars begin to pull away from the sides of the foil. Cool completely before cutting. Makes 16 bars. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
