Healthy Homemade Nutella Recipe (Vegan)
By Lindsay Sibson
Chocolate = delicious.
Chocolate when you are sad = love.
Chocolate at “that time of the month” = marriage.
BUT, chocolate can be one temperamental lover, depending on the type of chocolate and sweets you choose. Many treats contain chemically enhanced ingredients, questionable sweeteners and other unhealthy additives.
Don’t worry though, you don’t need to break up with getting your chocolate fix. The BEST solution is to make your own delights at home.
Let me introduce you to the decadent and healthy Homemade Nutella.
Why make it at home when you can just pick up a jar from the store?
Check out these facts comparing the two:
|Vegetable oil (palm oil) – high in saturated fat and a huge GMO crop.
||Vegetable oil- free.
|13% hazelnut (resembles milk chocolate more than a “hazelnut cream”).
||Packed with hazelnuts.
|Contains vanillin – a synthetic flavor component.
||No artificial flavors.
Follow this recipe to create a healthy, rich, nutty and chocolately treat!
Now it is time to enjoy your creation. Happy Chocolating!
- 2 cups hazelnuts
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- ⅔ cup honey
- ½ cup rice milk
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 376 F (176 C).
- Place hazelnuts on baking sheet and toast for 12 minutes until golden brown.
- Rub hazelnuts wrapped in a towel to remove skins (it is okay if some remain).
- Allow hazelnuts to cool down and place in food processor.
