Homemade Nutella

Homemade Nutella 


1/2 cup hazelnuts

4 tablespoons almond milk 

1 cup fresh dates, pitted 

1/3 cup raw cacao powder

A pinch of ground cinnamon (optional)

A pinch of grated nutmeg (optional)

A pinch of coarse sea salt (optional)


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

Spread out hazelnuts on a roasting sheet and then, roast them for about 8 minutes or until fragrant. 

Remove the hazelnuts from the pan immediately to prevent over-roasting. Place them on a kitchen towel and discard as much loose skin as possible.  

(You can roast the hazelnuts in a good-quality nonstick skillet, too). 

Process the hazelnuts and almond milk in your blender until they form a paste. 

If you tend to make a smoother and creamier spread, you can add more almond milk to thin it out. 

Add in fresh dates, followed by the cocoa powder and spices. Mix the ingredients into a thick cream.

Spoon your Nutella into a jar and keep in your refrigerator for up to a week. Bon appétit!
