Vegan Nutella

Nutella is one of those things that I used to eat that I miss with a passion. So, when I came across a jar of it in my mom's pantry, I opened it and took a deep whiff.  All those glorious memories of chocolatey hazelnuts began to excite my olfactory neurons and I decided there and then that I need Nutella!  So, I whipped up a vegan version that put it to shame! It's creamy, nutty, chocolatey, and perfectly sweet. And with only four ingredients is simple to make. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of hazelnuts, raw or roasted
  • 1/3 cup dairy free chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Roast the hazelnuts in a pan over medium heat or in 350 degree preheated oven in a single layer for approximately 15 minutes, shaking the pan a couple of times to get an even roast.
  2. Allow to cool slightly and then transfer to a kitchen towel and rub the nuts to remove the skins.
  3. Place the skinless nuts into your Vitamix or food processor and blend on low, scraping the nuts down every minute or so until you have a smooth nut butter.
  4. Heat the chopped chocolate over a double boiler or pulse melt it in the microwave, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth.
  5. Add the melted chocolate, vanilla and salt to the nut butter and blend again until it is all smooth and creamy.
  6. You may increase the sweetness to your liking by adding agave, maple or brown rice syrup.
  7. Place in a jar and store in the refrigerator or in a cool pantry for up to one month.

Notes

This recipe can easily be double or tripled.
