Refined Sugar-Free Homemade Vegan Nutella

Refined Sugar-Free Homemade Vegan Nutella

If you're a Nutella fan, but worried about some of the unhealthy ingredients, you're in luck because I've got a healthier homemade version. Plus, there are health benefits to it! A recent study from the Journal of Nutrition found that people who ate hazelnuts for sixteen weeks saw an increase in their magnesium and Vitamin E levels. Vitamin E helps protect our cells from free radicals and fight against viruses. When combined with the unsweetened cacao powder, this hazelnut spread is an antioxidant powerhouse. Enjoy it on a piece of toast, waffles, or with your favorite piece of fruit.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups roasted hazelnuts
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps:

  1. Roast hazelnuts at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, turning once, and checking on them every so often. You'll want them to be a golden brown color.
  2. Once cool, remove the skins of the hazelnuts and add to a food processor or high-speed blender.
  3. Blend on low for 8-10 minutes.
  4. Once the nut butter is formed, add in the cacao powder, vanilla extract, salt and maple syrup. 
  5. Blend again until smooth, then enjoy!
