  4. Add melted coconut oil and mix well.
  5. Using your hands press ½ of the oats/flour mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven.
  6. Using a spoon or spatula gently spread 'nutella' over the oats crust.
  7. When 'nutella' is evenly spread, put the other ½ of mixture on top using your hands to distribute evenly the crumble.Press gently with your hands.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Leave to cool completely before cutting into bars.
  10. Keep at room temperature or in the fridge and enjoy with a glass of cold milk of your choice.
