|Chocolate Breakfast Bars 2.0 (Nutella Version)|
I loved the first version I shared of my Chocolate Breakfast Bars.
I really, really love this version.
Writing this cookbook has taught me so much, given me so much more than I could have ever anticipated. It has pushed my imagination outside of boundaries I didn't know existed. As strange as it might sound, I am deeply grateful to this cookbook-baby I'm in the process of birthing.
This book has encouraged me to never rest on my laurels, to always ask "what else, what more, how better?". Asking these questions doesn't preclude me for being grateful for what I have or have already created. Quite the opposite. These questions ignite in me a sense of wonder at my/our limitless capacity to create and inspire. We all have this ability, we just have to ask the right questions.
Thus, while scrolling through my recipes a few weeks ago, I found myself hovering over my Chocolate Breakfast Bars. I knew they were good enough, but I also knew they could be better. I asked myself what could take them to the next level of chocolatey goodness, and my mind immediately went to hazelnuts. More specifically, to Nutella.
Nutella has become synonymous with the unmistakeable and really, unbeatable combination of hazelnuts and chocolate. Why not try it in my Chocolate Breakfast Bar?
WHY NOT, INDEED.
As soon as I bit into the new and improved Chocolate Breakfast Bar, Nutella style, I couldn't wait for my cookbook to share it. These bars are more decadent than the original, but they're absolutely still healthy enough to start the day. They won't leave you with cravings or a sugar high—just an energized, blissful buzz.
I have also used these bars as snacks, as dessert, or crumbled over oats or a smoothie bowl like granola. Any way you dig it, these Nutella-inspired Breakfast Bars will make you fall deeper in love with food, and maybe even inspire you to push your own boundaries.
