This homemade vegan Nutella recipe is a game-changer for all the chocolate hazelnut spread lovers out there.
Made with simple ingredients like raw hazelnuts, dark chocolate, and a touch of maple syrup, it’s a healthier alternative to traditional Nutella, without any added sugar or artificial flavors.
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spread the hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet, and roast for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven, and place hazelnuts into a food processor or high-speed blender. Blitz for a few minutes, until you have thick and creamy nut butter.
While the nuts are processing, break the chocolate into small pieces and melt with the coconut oil.
Add the remaining ingredients including the coconut oil, maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla extract, and salt. Blend for another couple of minutes, until you have a creamy hazelnut butter.
When finished, this hazelnut vegan chocolate spread recipe will have a thick, almond butter or peanut butter-like consistency.
