Better For You Homemade Nutella

We are Nutella fans in our house.....big time.  Whats not to love with it's creamy chocolaty, nutty goodness? This homemade version allows you to control the quality of ingredients and the result is pure bliss!

  • 2 cups hazelnuts
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbl agave nectar or honey
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tbl hazelnut oil or melted coconut oil
Blend the hazelnuts in a food processor until they have turned into a paste like consistency.  Add in the remaining ingredients until well combined.  Wala!  You have homemade nutella!  Spread on a sandwich, use as a dip for fruit or just eat with a spoon :)
