Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (Home made “Nutella”)
Recipe type: Vegan, Healthy, Sweets, Spreads
Serves: 1 jar
This chocolate hazelnut spread is like home made nutella, but way more nutritious and delicious! It's super easy to make, and I love having a jar in my fridge to add to porridge, fruits, or to just eat with a spoon!
  • 200g hazelnuts (2 cups / 500ml)
  • 1-2 tablespoons macadamia oil
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2½ tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt
  • 75ml nut milk
  1. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and pre-heat your oven to 175ºC/350ºF.
  2. Roast your hazelnuts until golden and fragrant, about 10 minutes, shaking the tray once halfway through. Remove from the oven and once they’re cool enough to handle, use your hands to move them about the tray, pinching the skins off - this isn’t absolutely necessary, but it does make it smoother!
  3. Add your hazelnuts minus the skins to a food processor and blend on high for about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides as you go. Once it’s become smooth and like a paste, add in the remaining ingredients except for the nut milk.
  4. Blend again and gradually add in your nut milk, until everything is beautifully smooth.
