Triple Chocolate Nutella Granola


Triple Chocolate Nutella Granola! For the serious chocolate lover only! Nutella, cocoa powder and chunks of dark chocolate make this granola the most decadent homemade cereal you have ever tasted! It’s also a delicious DIY food gift!



3 cups regular rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2 Tablespoons natural cocoa { I use Hershey’s}

1 cup unsweetened coconut chips

1/2 cup hazelnuts

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

3 Tablespoons melted coconut oil or vegetable oil

3/4 cup Nutella

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks 


  • Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Preheat the oven to 300°.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, salt, cocoa, coconut, and hazelnuts.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the Nutella, oil, and maple syrup.
  • Stirring constantly, warm the mixture until the oil separates from the Nutella and the mixture becomes glossy.  The mixture never fully melts! Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Pour the Nutella mixture over the oats.
  • Using clean hands, squish, and squeeze to combine the ingredients. Messy but fun!
  • Dump the oats onto the lined cookie sheet—Bake for 35-45 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes to ensure the granola dries evenly.
  • When the granola feels dry and a touch crispy, it’s ready!
  • Cool completely on a wire rack. Add the chocolate chunks and enjoy!
  • Store the granola in a large glass jar for up to 3 weeks.


  • With the holidays coming, keep this recipe in mind if you are into giving homemade food gifts like I do!
  • If you prefer milk or white chocolate, use those styles of chips instead of the dark!
  • Keep the hazelnuts whole or if you prefer, coarsely chop them!
