This might not be the most complicated recipe to ever grace the blog, but it’s so good. It needs to be shared. I would feel badly if I didn’t share it. Everyone needs some of this easy, healthy, homemade Nutella granola in their lives.
Granola is a really easy to make, and easy to enjoy. Since making this batch, I’ve made a few others with different flavours and I’m really liking having a quick snack available when I’m looking for it!
I made this one for Kevin specifically, because he loves Nutella, and I love when he eats healthy homemade foods. It didn’t last long. He was eating it plain, with milk, and sharing with the kids.
That reminds me, I need to make more!
Things to know about this recipe:
You’re going to ask me: “do I really need all that coconut oil and honey?”
YES. You need it! Trust me. The coconut oil and honey are what helps to toast your oats to a nutty brown colour, and make the granola clusters. The wise ones know that the granola clusters are where it’s at!
Is it really necessary to call this Nutella? No, but it is hazelnuts and chocolate *shrugs*
Granola is not difficult to make, this recipe is no exception. You’ll be enjoying this recipe in no time!
If you make this and love it, I’d love for you to share a photo on instagram with a #cravethegood hashtag, or share a photo or comment on this Pinterest Pin!
