Any of our sweeteners can be used to make your own deliciously healthy Sugar Free Nutella!

So much better for you than any store bought Nutella that uses sugar as it’s main ingredient. Nuts and chocolate dominate in this recipe and it’s low in carbs and free of preservatives as well. There’s no need to feel guilty feeding this to your family.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups hazelnuts roasted with husks removed
  • 3 Tablespoons EVOO-extra virgin olive oil light in flavor or healthy oil of choice- Avocado, Macadamia, Coconut or MCT oil
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup Naturally Sweet Erythritol
  • A pinch of salt

Instructions

  • If you're using raw nuts roast the hazelnuts at 170 Celsius / 350 F for 10 minutes. Allow to cool and rub the nuts in a rough tea towel or with your hands to remove the husks. You can also toss in a sealed ceramic/glass container until the husks loosen. A little husk left on is ok. Dry roasted hazelnuts do not need to be roasted again and can be bought without husks.
  • Process all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. This takes around 5 minutes-10 minutes depending on the strength of your appliance. Scrape down the sides every now and then to ensure even blending of ingredients. The longer you process the smoother your Nutella will be.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one month. Allow to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes for a softer texture.

Recipe Notes

For a hints of vanilla, add 1/2-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract sugar free.For more developed chocolate flavors add 1/2-1 teaspoon of instant coffee powder.
