Nutella Granola Recipe ~ Easy Homemade Granola Recipe That Anyone Can Make! Oats and Chopped Hazelnuts Coated in Nutella and Loaded with Chocolate Chips! Prefect for Breakfast or a Healthy Snack!
One of my New Years resolutions was to not spend so much money on packaged food that I know I can make at home for cheaper. Things like cookies, cereal bars, and granola. I have 3 boys – do you know how long a box of granola lasts in my house? A day.
I know it’s going to require some extra effort on my part but I’m all in.
And it seems to be working well for me so far. My grocery bill this week and last was significant lower than they had been previously. And there hasn’t even been a whole lot of complaining about the lack of Oreos and Nutrigrain bars. Yet.
Here’s the thing though, as much as I don’t want to buy boxes of cereal and granola, it is definitely the go to breakfast food around here. You won’t find me making waffles at 5:30 in the morning. No ma’am.
So I am taking time each Sunday to make a big batch of homemade granola for the kids to eat before school all week long.
Granola is so much easier than you would expect it to be. For this Nutella Granola, you just coat regular oats and chopped hazelnuts in a nutella and coconut oil mixture and bake it for 30 minutes. You let that cool completely and then stir in some chocolate chips.
It is so delicious! It tastes like those yummy chocolate truffles with the hazelnut in the middle – and those are my favorite! I like pairing homemade granola with Greek yogurt so you also get a good bit of protein to start your day but it’s also delicious by itself or with milk!
