Healthy Nutella Recipe - I made this recipe and ate it all straight from the jar!!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Who out there is a sucker for all things hazelnut and chocolate? I know I am!  This Healthy Nutella Recipe is homemade, packed with that chocolate and hazelnut flavor, and is so good I find myself literally eating it off a spoon. There really is nothing like the flavor combination of decadent chocolate and toasty hazelnuts.

Move over store bought Nutella! This homemade Healthy Nutella Recipe is NUTS! (pun intended, of course). While this recipe is low on effort it is maxed out on flavor. This Nutella rendition is a cross between hazelnut butter and chocolate spread. To start I toast my hazelnuts releasing all of that nutty flavor. When the hazelnuts are toasted to a golden brown I blitz them into a super smooth nut butter. This takes just minutes and is so easy as my food processor does all the work. This is where it goes from nut butter to homemade Healthy Nutella. I add cocoa powder, almond milk, maple syrup and blend.

No preservatives or artificial ingredients, this sweet spread is good enough to eat all on its own. I love to use it to take my morning toast to the next level or spread on a piece of my Best Ever Banana Bread. This Nutella will keep in your fridge for up to one month but I doubt it will last this long. This a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth but keep things on the healthier side. I cannot wait for you to give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cup (6 1/2oz/ 200g) hazelnuts
  • 3/4 cup (3oz/90g) cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (8floz/240ml) almond milk (or milk of choice)

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract , optional
  • A pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350oF (180oC).
  • Spread the hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast them until fragrant, about 12 to 15 minutes. Keep an eye on this!

Yes! I did it.

Made the delicious vegan Nutella. Aldi actually had roasted hazelnuts!

So easy and extremely delicious. I used coconut milk and powdered swerve and liquid vanilla Splenda to sweeten. Thank you, thank you for this delicious recipe. I submitted my photo.

Hi Gemma,

In my country , we can’t find hazelnut. Is it possible to do with cashews?

Also for maple syrup can use bee honey or treacle honey?

Please advice..
Thanks in advance

Hi Gemma,
I am a recent subscriber to ur Youtube channel and Website, and I am loving ur recipes . I am a big time chocoholic too and I wanna try out ur Homemade Nutella recipe. I have the below 3 queries though. Hope u can clarify :
1. Can I roast the hazelnuts over stove on a pan.
2. Can I use melted chocolate instead of / along with the cocoa powder.
3. I don’t get maple syrup in here, so can I skip that. Or is there any substitute (honey etc.) for it.

Thanks in Advance.
