Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 2 cups

Ingredients

Healthy Nutella

  • 2 cups raw hazelnuts (240g)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp pure maple syrup, xylitol, or unrefined sugar
  • pinch stevia, or 1 tbsp additional sugar
  • 1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
  • optional: 2 tsp oil for extra smoothness
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice

Instructions

  • Homemade Nutella Recipe: Roast hazelnuts for 6-8 minutes at 400 F. Rub them together in a paper towel to get the skins off. (It’s ok if a few stubborn skins won’t come off.) In a Vita-mix or food processor, blend the nuts until they’ve turned to butter, then add all other ingredients and blend a long time until it’s smooth like Nutella! (I think I blended off-and-on for a full two minutes. It's extra-creamy in a Vita-mix, but a Cuisinart food processor works as well.)

Notes

The nutritional info includes the sugar/agave. For a sugar-free healthy Nutella, you can replace all of the sugar with an equal amount of xylitol.  Or, you can sweeten with stevia instead. (I haven't personally tried this recipe using just stevia, so I can't vouch for the resulting taste if you go that route.)
