Nutella Granola Bars

It has been far to long since I shared a recipe that includes Nutella.

Just because there has been a lack of Nutella recipes on Mother Thyme recently doesn’t mean there isn’t a jar or two of this tasty hazelnut spread hanging in my pantry.  Like Biscoff, Nutella is one of those spreads that you just need a spoon and a jar of this amazing stuff to satisfy a sweet tooth.

Nothing beats homemade granola bars.  If you are a Nutella fan you are going to love these.  These Nutella Granola Bars are fantastic!  Just the right amount of Nutella incorporated into granola bars that have perfect firmness and right amount of texture.  Best part, these are so simple to whip up.  You just need one bowl, one pan a few ingredients and 30 minutes to whip up these delicious little bars that make the ultimate snack.

  1. I keep seeing people posting homemade granola bars, and I haven’t tried any of them yet. I’m pretty sure you’ve just convinced me with these – they sound and look amazing!!

  2. Just one question. I see butter as an ingredient but I don’t see where to add it in. My guess is with Nutella, vanilla and pecans. Can you confirm? Thanks!
