Chocolate Nut Spread












Why buy overly sweetened Nutella when you can make your own?

Ingredients (Hazelnut version):

  • 100 grams Hazelnuts, lightly roasted
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut sugar
  • 3 – 4 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla bean paste
  • water

(Makes for one standard jar)


  1. Whiz together the almonds and sugar in a food processor or sturdy blender until almost a paste.  Add the raw cacao and whizz again. Add the protein powder and vanilla bean paste and whiz one more time for good measure until combined.
  2. Continue whizzing at a low to medium speed and add the water in a steady stream, a little at a time. Add only until the mixture is smooth and creamy, but not too solid or runny either.
  3. Pour or scoop into a clean jar and store in the refrigerator.  This was enough for one standard jar.
