Description

This healthy vegan Nutella is so rich, creamy & just the right mix of hazelnuts & chocolate! Perfect for toast, drizzled over berries or just eaten by the spoonful!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of raw hazelnuts or dry roasted & skinned (if you buy them dry-roasted & skinned you can skip steps 1-4)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate (I like this one for low sugar & this one for dairy-free)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or hazelnut oil)
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder

*optional sweetener of choice (powdered coconut sugar, powdered sugar, Lakanto, etc)


Instructions

  1. If you did not buy pre-dry roasted & skinned hazelnuts you are going to want to do that first. Set your oven to 350 F.
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper & evenly spread out the hazelnuts.
  3. Roast them for 10-12 minutes, until fragrant.
  4. Let them cool slightly & then begin to peel off the skins. They should come off easily.**
  5. Once the skins are removed add your hazelnuts to a powerful blender or food processor.
  6. Blend until the nuts start to clump together & form somewhat of a ‘clumpy’ paste.
  7. Melt the dark chocolate & the coconut oil in 15 second intervals in the microwave (or over low heat on a stovetop), mixing after every 15 seconds until smooth.
  8. Add this to the blender with the pink salt, vanilla & cocoa powder until smooth & creamy.
  9. Store in a mason jar or air-sealed container, enjoy!
  10. Note: if you want it a bit sweeter you can mix in a few tbsp of your preferred sweetener of choice. I would recommend a powdered sweetener.

Notes

*To make powdered coconut sugar, simply blend coconut sugar in a blender until a powder has formed.

**You can also rub them between paper towel or a tea towel to get the skins off as well.
