Why should you make you my Ferrero Rocher Granola? (or any granola for that matter!!). Well, here’s 4 MASSIVE reasons!!
- Its a filling and tasty brekkie
- You can easily adapt it to meet your dietary requirements.
- Its so simple to make – it takes just 5 mins prep & 10-15 min bake! No fuss or cleaning up necessary.
- Its so much cheaper than the shop bought alternative and doesn’t come with any nasty preservatives, added sugar etc (unless you want it to ;)).
And if you’re going to start making you’re own, Ferrero Rocher granola has to the be place to start right?!!!
I usually sprinkle a handful on fruit & yoghurt or grab a handful as a snack on its own. Also, I love it sprinkled on top of my Healthy, 3-Ingredient Pancakes too!
I think it makes the perfect present too. Bottle it up in a cute jar (mine is from Hobbycraft) and give it to your friends/family… I mean, you’d be my best friend forever if you turned up on my door with a jar of homemade Ferrero Rocher Granola!!
“Ferrero Rocher” Style Granola
- 150 grams mixed nuts – or literally 150g of any nuts you have in the cupboard!
- 80 grams whole blanced hazelnuts
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Pack of Schar Wafers – or Wafer curls from Holland and Barrett if you’re dairy free
- Asda chocolate crispies bar – or any choc bar you fancy
- Pre-heat the oven to 160oC
- Create your base by whizzing 150g of nuts and 30g of hazelnuts in a blender – looking for large breadcrumbs (only takes a few seconds)
- In a pan, heat the following at a low temperature until combined: maple syrup, vanilla, cocoa powder and water.
- Pour the base nuts into the pan with the syrup solution and mix together.
- Add the remaining whole hazelnuts and mix together.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the granola over it.
- Bake for 10-15mins until the nuts are starting to toast.
- Optional: Cut up the chocolate bar into small pieces and scatter over the granola. Crumble at least half the packet of Schar wafers through the mixture too. Pile the mixture together in the middle of the baking tray (to keep the heat in which will melt the chocolate and form granola clusters!)
- Leave to cool and transfer into a jar until ready!
Leave out the hazelnuts & cocoa powder and use this “base” to create any flavour of granola you fancy!
Why not try making a tropical mix with dried pineapple and coconut? Or perhaps dried strawberries and cashews? Or even add a little orange flavouring & choc chips!!! This is making me very hungry!!
