Homemade Healthy Nutella

Recipes

How can anyone say no to Nutella?? Well, I can easily say no to the store bought one, but I can't keep away from a creamy homemade one. It's incredibly nutty but smooth enough to make you go crazy. You can add this to a cake, in banana bread or even in your cereal!

  • gf - gluten free

  • Healhty Nutella
  • 2 cups  hazelnuts
  • 60 g  dark chocolate (you can change it to 3 Tbsp cacao powder)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 5 dates (optional for extra sweetness)
  • 1/2 tsp  vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp  salt

Spread the hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven at 180C for about 12 minutes, until they’ve browned. Wrap them in a kitchen towel and rub vigorously to remove as much loose skin as possible.

Melt the chocolate in a saucepan over gently simmering water. Stir until smooth.

In a food processor, grind the hazelnuts until they form a paste. Add the coconut oil, dates, vanilla, dates and salt and continue processing until the mixture is as smooth as possible-or as smooth as you like. Add the melted chocolate, blend well. If it’s not runny enough add a bit of coconut milk.

Scrape your homemade Nutella into a jar. The nutella will keep on the counter for up to 2 weeks. (Hah, yeah right!)
