Chocolate Hazelnut Crunch Granola

Meet the latest craze in our family: homemade Nutella granola.  We eat this for breakfast, lunch, snack, dessert, whenever we want a burst of absolute yumminess.

You get these nutty, chocolatey, crunchy bites every time you reach in for a handful or two.  Plus, the oats, hazelnuts, and chocolate-hazelnut spread really give you a great energy boost to get you through the day.

You can pour milk over it for breakfast, add a crunch to your daily yogurt, serve it with ice cream, or grab it out of the jar by handfuls when no one is looking…

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 2 cups quick oats
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped hazelnuts

  • In the bowl of your mixer, on low-medium speed, combine the melted butter, honey, chocolate hazelnut spread, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.
  • On low speed, mix in the oats and salt until combined.
  • Using a spatula, spread the granola mixture onto the lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then add the chopped hazelnuts and stir the granola.
