Now this has been a long time coming. We would have shared this ages ago, but we wanted to ring in the new year right and nothing would do that like Nutella!
Healthy homemade Nutella that is vegan and a breeze to make is simply the best start to a healthy new year. Sounds like a dream come true?
This healthy Nutella has no dairy, white sugar or unhealthy oils. It makes for something that you can enjoy without throwing any resolutions out the window. And how to eat it! It can be chilled like pictured for an extremely luscious fudge just begging to be inhaled with a spoon or when at room temperature, it becomes the prefect spread for anything imaginable. There are endless delicious possibilities.
One of our favs is hot fresh crepes! I hope you’ll have this recipe in your pantry at all times, locked and loaded – this is your new addiction. Happy 2013!
Healthy Nutella (vegan)
Spread hazelnuts in a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast the nuts at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until nuts have browned and you can rub nut skins off. Remove pan and cover with a towel. Rub the nuts roughly until skins come off. It’s okay if some skins don’t come off all the way.
Dump the nuts and coconut sugar into a food processor. Blend until a smooth rough paste. Add the melted chocolate and oil. Pulse until combined. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy or to the consistency that you like. Mixture should be thick but soft. Store covered in the fridge for a thick fudge like consistency (like pictured, which is perfect for adding to hot crepes, pancakes or waffles so that when it melts it doesn’t become runny), or keep at room temperature to add to everything!
