Vegan Nutella

A luxurious, chocolaty-hazelnut spread that makes a perfect nostalgic treat.
With the most comforting texture and rich taste, this classic nutty spread is both satisfying and versatile.

This recipe is also quick and easy to prepare!

To make this devinely sweet spread, you will need:
  • 1.5 cups raw hazelnuts
  • 1.5 cups icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  1.  Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Lay out a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and scatter the raw hazelnuts sparingly. Bake for 10 minutes.
  2. Let the hazelnuts cool (for about 5-10 minutes, until they are cool enough to touch). Tip: do not let the hazelnuts sit for too long or the skins will become tougher to remove.
  3. Using small handfuls, rub the hazelnuts to remove as much of the skins as possible.
  4. Use a small paring knife to remove the remaining skins (less skins = less bitterness in the spread).
  5. In a blender, add the hazelnuts, icing sugar (if you prefer, you may add less sugar and try some taste-tests to see if you want more sweetness), cocoa powder, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and almond milk.
  6. Blend until smooth.

Pour the spread into an air-tight container (we used small mason jars) and let it thicken in the fridge. Keep chilled.
