Healthy DIY Nutella
Oh yes, DIY Nutella.
A homemade Nutella is 100% natural and made with good-for-you ingredients. A version that is high in fiber and free of refined sugar, that actually tastes good great amazing. A homemade version that tastes like the real deal!
To be honest, all I can think about is this dreamy chocolatey spread… probably because I’m so shocked at how good it turned out (unlike my failed attempt a couple months ago, which was gritty, bitter and turned rock hard in the fridge).
But don’t worry, I’m not obsessed with this Healthy DIY Nutella. I’m not.
Okay I definitely am. I ate this off the whisk, I ate this off multiple spoons a spoon, I even ate it off a knife… definitely not the safest thing to do, it was just that good. I couldn’t help it, I couldn’t stop! It’s just so sweet and creamy and smooth and chocolatey. It satisfies the chocolate monster inside you.
I’m starting to think I don’t have a chocolate monster inside me at all, I’m just the chocolate monster itself.
Did I mention I ate this off a knife? Oh, the things I’ll do for some chocolate…
For the safer chocolate monsters out there, spread this “Nutella” on whole grain bread … with a butter knife 😉
You can also use it as a dip for apples, bananas and other fruits. That or a spoon. Whatever suits you more (I like the spoon option).
In a blender, add the hazelnut butter, hazelnut oil, almond milk, stevia extract, and vanilla paste. Puree until smooth.
In a small bowl, whisk together the erythritol and cocoa powder. With the blender running, slowly add the dry ingredients to the blender. Puree until smooth. Add more stevia/erythritol or a pinch of salt to taste, if you like.
Serve immediately or store in a pretty, sealable jar in the fridge. Stir before using. Keeps for 1 week.

Life is complete with a jar (or three) of this in the fridge.
With love and good eats,
