Choc Nut Spread

Posted on by

chocspreadMade 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.

With most of the Easter chocolate gone now, I’ve made the odd slightly healthier treat this week.  One being these brownies, made with sweet potato.  Not the best picture, and I overcooked them a bit (distracted by bean 2 + 3) but they tasted pretty good and would definitely make them again.

I’m thankful today is Friday this week…. happy weekend xx
