Crunchy Hazelnut Spread (Healthy Nutella)

After the Christmas holidays, we can sometimes be left with a taste for the sweeter things. This spread is a nice way of satisfying that sweet spot, without giving in to the refined sugars. It’s dairy free, gluten free and vegan.

Here’s our recipe for a much healthier Hazelnut spread. If you store it in an airtight jar in the fridge, it’ll last about a week. You can also use it for baking (we use it in brownies)! This recipe is so quick and easy.

You’ll need;

  • 2 cups of raw hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup of cacao powder (raw is great)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla (extract or actual vanilla pods)
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup, honey or unrefined sweetener of choice
  • Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup (you may not need it all, you may need more) milk (we use cashew or almond)


What do do;

  • First, bake the hazelnuts in an oven for about 6 or 7 minutes on 180 degrees.
  • When they’re out of the oven and cooled, you can remove the skins, but we don’t bother – we like the extra fibre!
  • Blend all ingredients together until you get a smooth, spread-like texture. Depending on how chunky you like the nuts, you can blend for between 1-3 minutes.
