Nutella is amazing, if you have ever dug a big spoonful right out of the jar, and into your mouth, you have lived a good life. However, then you may have looked at the ingredients and calorie content, and felt a little less awesome. This is the exact scenario I was in right before I stopped eating meat over a decade ago.
The flavor still haunts me though, and the ideas I have of what I could do with some vegan nutella are endless. So, I concocted a sugar free, dairy free, gluten free version that I will be linking back to, probably often! So, please enjoy!
1 1/2 C. Roasted hazelnuts
1/4 C. Cocoa powder
1/4 C. Almond milk
10-12 Dates (pitted)
1/2 tsp. Salt
1. Put all the ingredients into a food processor. Blend until super smooth.
2. Adjust seasoning, you can add more dates or another sweetener if it needs to be sweeter or more salt if it needs it.
3. Make sure the consistency is nice and smooth and not too liquidy or too thick. You can add more hazelnuts or more milk.
4. Enjoy on toast, in recipes, and anything you desire!
