OK alright. So Nutella has been having a bad rap recently due to the articles going around the net. But I always keep this recipe close to me, just in case I am in desperate need of sugar cravings (which actually doesn't happen often since I quit sugar a couple months ago). But you know - just in case.
This recipe is adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction.
PREP TIME + COOK TIME
15 mins + 45 mins
What You'll Need
- 2 cups of rolled oats
- 1/2 cups of sliced almonds
- 1/2 tsp of freshly grated cinnamon
- 1/4 cup mashed banana (a small one)
- 35 gr Nutella
- 1/8 cup 100% pure maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- sprinkle of salt
- 1/2 cup banana chips
- 1/4 cup chopped 85% dark chocolate
How to Make It
|Step 1|| |
Preheat oven to 180C degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
|Step 2|| |
In a large bowl, mix together oats almonds, and cinnamon. Set aside.
|Step 3|| |
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the mashed Banana, Nutella, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt together. Allow to bubble for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and pour over the dry ingredients. Stir it all together until all of the oats are moistened.
|Step 4|| |
Spread the oats on the baking sheet in a thin even layer. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and stir. Bake for another 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Top the granola with chocolate and banana chips. Gently stir. The chocolate will melt, creating larger chunks of granola. Allow granola to cool completely; it will harden and crunch up as it is exposed to air. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
