Let me introduce you the best smoothie bowl topping ever! It’s also known for being a notorious toast spread. Or healthy snack fruit dip. Or even a great eat-with-a-spoon treat. Anyways, it’s an iconic everyone’s favorite.....Easy homemade “Nutella”!
It’s actually to simple, you’ll never need to but Nutella again. Especially since the original is made with 75% sugar and palm oil, while this one has at least 75% nuts and cacao powder. And no refined sugar or palm oil whatsoever.
Here I must say, proportions in this recipe very much depend on your preference, but here is the basic:
Recipe for ~500ml
2 cups (~300g) raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup (125 ml) raw cacao powder
1/3 cup (85ml) nut milk. Or more if you feel like paste is too thick
1/3 cup (85ml) maple or agave syrup, or raw honey. More or less, depending on your sweet teeth
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
Optional pinch of salt for deeper chocolate flavor
Process the nuts until broken down and start getting buttery
Add everything but coconut oil, process until it becomes a paste
Add coconut oil, mix until combined
Let it set in a fridge for 20-30 minutes
