Better Than Nutella
Vegan nutella that has only half the calories of storebought nutella!
double bonus :)
Makes approx. 2 cups
2 cups raw hazelnuts (240g)
1 1/2 T pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup plus 2 T agave or sugar (could use stevia)
1 packet stevia, or 1 T more agave or sugar
1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp salt
2-3 tsp oil (Can be omitted, but it’ll be a little less smooth.)
1/2 cup milk of choice (I used Almond Breeze)
Roast hazelnuts for 10-14 minutes at 420 F. Rub them together in a paper towel to get the skins off. (It’s ok if a few stubborn skins won’t come off.) In a food processor, blend the nuts until they’ve turned to butter, then add all other ingredients and blend a long time until it’s smooth like Nutella! (I think I blended off-and-on for a full two minutes in my Cuisinart.)
Calories per tablespoon: 57 (would be less if you used a no-calorie sweetener like stevia, splenda, etc.)
