Celebrate The Big Game With Delicious GF Nutella Recipes!

NutellaWhat a perfect combination: Superbowl XLV and World Nutella Day. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the big game than by indulging in a bunch of delectable, Nutella-filled treats (all gluten free of course)!

My love affair with Nutella truly spans a lifetime. As a kid with a severe wheat allergy, the bread options were far bleaker then than they are now. My family introduced me to Nutella, and it instantly became my favorite toast topper. It took away the dry and bland taste of wheat and gluten free bread back in the 90’s. Nowadays, I love having Nutella on my Udi’s Gluten Free Millet-Chia Bread for breakfast – it’s a great combo! Also, I’ve found a bunch of different ways to incorporate Nutella in my every day cooking and baking.

To celebrate both the Superbowl and World Nutella Day, I’ve got a bunch of easy gluten free snacks to keep your crew thriving and smiling throughout the game!

First off, let’s start the game with a standout appetizer: Nutella granola! This snack is great for adults and kids alike. Simply use Udi’s Gluten Free Au Naturel Granola for your base and you’ll be good to go! Here’s the recipe:

2 cups Udi’s Gluten Free Au Naturel Granola
1/3 cup Nutella
2 tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup dried bananas (or you can use any of your favorite dried fruits)

1.    Pour the granola into a large bowl.
2.    Heat the Nutella, oil, and brown sugar in a microwave safe bowl for about 45 seconds and mix well.
3.    Slowly combine the Nutella mixture into the granola.
4.    Spread into a baking pan and cook at 300 degree for 45 minutes until the granola is toasted. Stir frequently.
5.    Let cool and stir in dried bananas.
6.    Enjoy!

Next up, the main event. This Nutella and Banana pizza is a great halftime meal! Follow this recipe, and substitute the gluten-filled crust with a great Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust. Check out the recipe here and enjoy!

Last but not least, end the big game with a deliciously gluten free dessert: Nutella brownies. This is always a crowd favorite and it’s incredibly easy to make. I use this recipe, and it has always proved to be amazing!

Celebrating World Nutella Day during the Superbowl game is a great way to simply incorporate gluten free options that the whole crew will love! Typical game day snacks often lack appeal to the gluten free crowd, but these are an easy way to accommodate everyone! Don’t forget, Nutella can become a homemade option if you are vegan or have a dairy allergy or intolerance. Just use this vegan Nutella recipe, and you can adjust all the recipes to your needs! I hope you enjoy the big game while satisfying your sweet Nutella tooth!

    I heard some friends trashing Nutella because it contains palm oil. They said it is not good for us. Any input on that?

    • Wendy Hofstetter says:

      Hi Janet. Here’s an excerpt from Nutella’s website about the Palm Oil used in their products:

      Is the Palm Oil in Nutella® a hydrogenated oil?
      No. The palm oil is naturally extracted from the fruit of the palm. This palm oil is adjusted to assure the best consistency for easy spreading by reducing the level of saturated fat.
