Made my first jar of chocolate nut spread today. It might not look too pretty, but it tastes amazing. There are quite a few sugar free nutella recipes out there, but I used this one from Deliciously Ella. Mainly because it contains 3 ingredients and I had them in the cupboard.
Mine isn’t as smooth as it should be, as I was impatient so didn’t blend the nuts for 10minutes like the recipe says. Also because I used my nutribullet to blend and you can’t keep that on for that length of time.
2 cups of hazelnuts1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp raw cacao
1/2 cup water
Bake the hazelnuts at 180C/gas mark 4 for about 10 minutes, then take them out of the oven and allow them to cool.
Once the hazelnuts are cool place them in a food processor and blend for about 10 minutes, until they totally break down.
Then add the maple syrup and cacao and blend again, before gradually pouring in half a cup of water – it is important to make sure that the first three ingredients are properly mixed before you add the water.
