A Galaxy chocolate hazelnut loaf recipe has been labelled "genius" online by food lovers.

The first lockdown was all about the banana bread, but why not try cooking something new with this delicious recipe.

The scrumptious-looking loaf and recipe was shared online on the official Galaxy UK Instagram account.

Two snaps and the recipe were shared from baker Christianna's eathappyfeelgood 's Instagram account

The first snap saw the yummy looking loaf oozing with chocolate as the baker held it above her serving tray.

Meanwhile the second saw the load served with nuts and banana – and it certainly looked good enough to eat.

The post, which was shared with Galaxy's 21,900 followers, was captioned: "Okay, guilty, we’ve never been morning people… until now!

Christianna had decided to use vegan Galaxy chocolate for her recipe, however those who want to use the standard variety can also use that.

The recipe shared, which features jumbo oats and Galaxy hazelnut makes enough for ten portions.

Galaxy expanded it's vegan chocolate range last September, adding smooth mint and crumbled cookie flavours.

The Galaxy Vegan Crumbled Cookie bar is a dairy-free alternative to the Galaxy Cookie Crumble bar and combines rich cocoa and cookie pieces blended with creamy hazelnut paste.

Mars Chocolate Drinks & Treats GM Michelle Frost said Mars was “delighted to extend our range to offer more consumers more choice”. According to Frost, the “bright eye-catching packaging creates real on-shelf standout to attract new consumers to the category”.

Mars also launched vegan Topic and Bounty chocolate bars last month too.
