Homemade nutella

by Kellebelle

I LOVE Nutella but it is full of sugar, not to mention dairy (which I am trying to avoid!)… So I decided to make some vegan friendly hazelnut and cacoa spread instead!

This recipe is from Deliciously Ella who I am a bit in love with. Her books are packed full of amazing vegetarian and vegan recipes and healthy snacks. 

This Nutella spread was quite easy to make and tastes AMAZING!!!


  • Two mugs of hazelnuts 
  • 1/2 mug of maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacoa powder
  • 1/2 mug of filtered water 


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and bake the hazelnuts for 10 minutes.
  2. Once they are cool, blend them in a (strong!) food processor until completely broken up. I used my Nutribullet (milled blade option) and this did the job.
  3. Mix in the cacoa and maple syrup and blend again.
  4. When this is completely smooth, slowly add in the water and blend. For this stage I used a handheld blender as it was too much liquid for my Nutribullet!

And that’s it! I got a jar and a half from this. Had to stop myself eating it all before I poured it into jars…
