Coconut Nutella squares

I practically never buy Nutella – it’s not a good fit with my “processed-food-avoiding, cook-from-scratch” approach to feeding my family.

So having reluctantly agreed to buy a jar for the pancake breakfast following a special sleepover, I was keen to use up the rest before the girls started thinking of Nutella as a store-cupboard staple.

These coconut Nutella squares from the Hungry Mum website were just the ticket. Unfortunately, they were such a big hit with everyone, I can see myself buying Nutella specially in order to make them again.

Or I could have a go at making homemade Nutella…;-)

Coconut Nutella squares

  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Grease and line a rectangular baking tin with greaseproof paper.
  3. Beat together the butter and sugar until pale. Add the vanilla, then stir in the flour.
  4. Lightly press the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Leave to  cool.
  5. Spread the Nutella evenly over the cooled base.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, coconut and caster sugar to make the topping.
  7. Sprinkle the topping over the Nutella.
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes. Cool in the tin before cutting into squares.
