Nutella coconut bars / slice

nutella coconut bars

Sometimes you want to bake something technical, intricate and delicate. Other times you want something you can throw together with pantry staples in mere moments. Or your sugar craving needs to be address – stat. Or a child comes home with an until-this-moment forgotten about request for something sweet as a friend is coming over for a play. This is the recipe for you.

Nutella coconut bars  The Hungry Mum

This easy to bake Nutella coconut bars / slice/ squares recipe is so delicious – the crunch of the base contrasts so well with the lush chocolate filling. Make these and try and stop at just one piece!


125 grams butter, at room temperature, diced

100 grams brown sugar

1 teaspoon best vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups self-raising flour

½ cup Nutella


2 eggs, lightly beaten

2 cups desiccated coconut

1/3 cup caster sugar

Nutella coconut squares


Preheat oven to 180C.

Grease and line a rectangular slice pan, allowing a 3cm overhang of paper.

In bowl of electric mixer beat sugar, butter and vanilla until pale, then using a spoon stir in flour.

Scrape into pan, distributing evenly, and cook for 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Set aside until completely cool.

Meanwhile, mix all the topping ingredients together in a small bowl.

Spread Nutella over cold base, sprinkle over topping – ensure it is even.

Return to oven and cook for 20 minutes.

Leave in pan until cold, then cut into squares to serve.

    Nutella and coconut seem a great combo, and I do like both.

    Ooh I think I’d love this with raspberry jam instead of Nutella! 😀 Great to have these quick recipes on hand!

    We love a Louise slice here but never thought of popping Nutella in the middle! Inspired!

    These look fabulous! I think I’ve made something similar but instead of a centre of nutella, mine had raspberry jam! xx

    • The Hungry Mum October 16, 2015 at 1:03 am #

      Yeah, it is similar to the jam slice. However, trust me – Nutella is ALL the yum 😉

    I feel like this is one bar/slice I can make gluten free & still get stella results. Looks delicious, like a few others, I’ve baked something similar, but with jam in place of the nutella. The nutella def seems the better option. 🙂

    • The Hungry Mum October 19, 2015 at 6:25 am #

      Thank you – a cuppa would be the perfect friend for these squares.

    Yum! I have never tried coconut with nuttella but now you mention it …it sounds like a perfect match!

    • The Hungry Mum October 20, 2015 at 4:20 am #

      It is, as Greg Evans would say, a perfect match. If you’re under the age of 30 you may have to google Mr Evans 🙂
