A recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth- VEGAN Nutella

March 7, 2018

Who doesn't love Nutella? If you have a sweet tooth like I do then it's probably at the top of your list of chocolates too. It goes well with just about anything. My favorite way to eat Nutella is spread over toast, as a dip for fruits, or straight out of the jar with a spoon. I used to buy Nutella often and it never lasted long enough. However, it's been a while since I last purchased a jar. I actually removed it from my grocery list altogether due to the amount of sugar in just one jar. According to Nutella’s nutritional label, a serving of the spread (37 grams or two tablespoons) contains 21 grams of sugar. That's more sugar than any other ingredient so I decided to create my own Nutella. It's so easy to make, tasty (so close to the original) and a much healthier version. 

 

 

 

Ingredients

 

1 cup Hazelnuts

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 tbsp coconut oil

3 tbsp raw cacao powder

4 tbsp maple syrup

1/8 tsp salt

1/2 cup almond milk

 

 

Recipe

 

Blend hazelnuts in food processor high speed blender, until the nuts form a paste

Add remaining ingredients and blend until it's a creamy consistency

Transfer to a glass jar, seal, and store at room temperature  

 

NOTE: If your Nutella isn’t as sweet as you'd like it to be, add 1-2 tbsp agave.
