Homemade Raw, Healthy Nutella-like Recipe
Homemade Raw, Healthy Nutella-like Recipe:
2 cups raw hazelnuts
1 cup sucanat (can start with less and add more to taste)
1/2 maple syrup or mock maple syrup made from sucanat
3/4 cup of raw cream or milk (can use almond or oat milk milk, etc for a vegan recipe)
1 cup cocoa powder (we like a dark chocolate flavor)
2 Tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp sea salt (Celtic Sea Salt)
Throw it all into a food processor and blend until smooth. If it is getting too thick for the processor, add a little more milk or water. Adjust ingredients to your family's tastes. This recipe makes about 3 cups.
I wouldn't feel bad about letting my kids eat this on their toast in the mornings. Awesome, protein packed snack. Instead of peanut butter, you can use this as the filling for homemade chocolate cups.
Love it when I find a way to save money and keep the kids happy and healthy!
