INGREDIENTS

BASE

NUTELLA GANACHE

  • 7 oz vegan chocolate
  • cup hazelnut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup full fat canned coconut milk  (use thick part from the top of the can)
  • Toasted hazelnuts for garnish optional

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Add the oats to your food processor along with the hazelnut butter and maple syrup and blend for a few minutes until combined. Add the water, then blend again until the mixture sticks together to form a dough consistency. If using regular oats (see notes below) add more water if the mixture is too dry or more oats if the mixture is too wet.
  • Lightly grease the bottom and sides of an 8 inch square pan with some oil and line it with parchment paper. Press the dough into the base of the pan and smooth it out using a cake scraper or flat bottomed glass. Chill for 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile prepare the ganache topping by melting the chocolate over a double boiler. Add the melted chocolate, hazelnut butter, maple syrup and coconut milk to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Use a cake scraper or spatula to spread the ganache on top of the base in an even layer. Then use the back of a spoon to create a swirl effect. Top with some roasted hazelnuts.
  • Chill for 2 hours, then slice and serve.
  • Store these bars in the fridge in an airtight container and consume within 5 days.
