chocolate hazelnut spread

like nutella? this is a raw, vegan version. free of dairy, processed sugar, palm oil and artificial flavours. with just a few ingredients - this is way better for you, and incomparable in taste. try it out today! i eat it straight up with a spoon. it's also really easy to add into desserts... including banana ice cream. oh my ice creamy goodness.


chocolate hazelnut spread: makes about 2 cups 

2 cups hazelnuts
1/4 cup cacao
1/4 cup melted cacao butter
1/4 cup honey/agave/maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup or so vegan milk, adding as needed

make the hazelnuts into hazelnut butter in your blender or food processor; it will take a little while. if you want more flavour, toast them first. then add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth. it should be pretty creamy like a spread. see if you like it - add what you want accordingly. put it in a jar and refrigerate. sneak this treat whenever you want to.


guess what - i will be 19 years old in like 3 weeks. i am so ready to hit the clubs and go crazy with my friends. wanna join? here's a diplo's new EP to get you in the mood. you know i like ALL kinds of music, so i will admit this is my guilty pleasure.

you are so inspiring! How can I become more like you? Where do you get these great ideas and the drive to live this amazingly healthful lifestyle? I'm trying, but just can't seem to break old habits. Any advice?

oh kathy, you're too sweet! thank you so much. i just love my body and want to respect it, so when i eat, i ask myself - will this be good for me? if not, then i just don't eat it. i feel SO GOOD when i make the right choices, it's worth giving up things that aren't healthy. besides, who even wants unhealthy stuff when you can make wholesome versions of ice cream, chocolate, nutella, pasta, etc.

I made this today. Don't have Vitamix so my crappy blender had to do the job, it's not as smooth but oh my lord does it taste amazing. I also added more "milk" so it's kinda creamier. Thank you.

Thank YOU! I just checked out your website and love it. That raw apple pie looks amazing :)

Yey, glad you liked it. It's my version of http://rawified.blogspot.sk/2012/04/raw-apple-pie.html if you're curios. Btw, I am loving your blog, already made the zuke paste with creamy cheese and I was thinking of making the kale chips but I wonder what they'll turn out like in my oven :/
Thanks once again

Emily von Euw said...

They'd be fine in your oven as long as you set it to the lowest temperature. I've done that before :)

Hello! I already have a hazelnut butter so could you please tell me how much should I put? Approx how much butter do you get from 2 cups of hazelnuts? Thank you! :)

Hi there!! I made this last night with coconut oil as I didnt have cacao butter and it turned out nice but not as chocolately as I'd have liked, I'm guessing I need to use the cacao butter next time to fix that? Also I'd love to make it sugar free, if I was to substitute stevia for honey how much do you think I should use in this recipe? Thanks!
