Homemade Nutella (Dairy Free)
Author: 
Recipe type: Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread
Serves: 1 cup
 
20 Minutes and 6 ingredients are all you need to make this mind-blowingly delicious dairy-free Nutella! You'll never want the store-bought stuff again!
Ingredients
  • 1 Cup Dry Roasted Hazelnuts (Make sure they are mostly peeled-I got mine from Trader Joes, and they were all ready to blend. If your hazelnuts are raw and still have the skins on, you will need to roast and peel them before processing)
  • ½ Cup Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 to 4 Tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a high-powered blender or food processor, blend/process the hazelnuts until they have formed a smooth paste (similar to that of almond or peanut butter), scraping down the sides as needed. It took me about 5 minutes to reach this consistency in my food processor.
  2. Add all other ingredients to mixing bowl, using just 2 Tablespoons Coconut oil and process until all ingredients are combined, about 1-2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. If the mixture is too dry, turn off the blender/processor, and add another Tablespoon of Coconut Oil. Turn the processor back on, until all ingredients are fully combined. Repeat this step with remaining Tablespoon of Coconut Oil if spread is still too thick. My Nutella used 3 Tablespoons of the Coconut Oil to reach the correct consistency. (Spread consistency should resemble that of almond butter when you have the right amount of oil.)
  4. Store in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 weeks.
