Yield 2 cups

A delicious chocolate hazelnut spread recipe with simple ingredients, much less sugar, and higher in protein than the leading brand.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast for 12 to 15 minutes, until fragrant.
  2. Carefully put the hot hazelnuts in a mason jar with the lid on and shake. The papery skins will fall right off. Remove the nuts that are now skinless and put them in a food processor or a high-powered blender, then re-shake the jar until the rest of the skins come off as well.
  3. Grind the hazelnuts for about 5 minutes until they turn into a creamy hazelnut butter.
  4. Add the sugar or other sweetener, cocoa powder, coconut oil, vanilla, and salt. Blend for another minute until all the ingredients are combined smooth.
  5. Transfer to a pint mason jar. Store in the refrigerator for several weeks.

Notes

Feel free to use any sweetener you'd like in this recipe, just sweeten to taste.
