Homemade version of Nutella

A hazelnut and cocoa spread that you will fall in love with...a healthier version of the very known Nutella spread!

To be completely honest, I am not a big fan of Nutella...it has an intense sweetness that make me lose the beautiful hazelnut taste combined with strong cocoa.  

By the way, I am a huge hazelnut lover, so that is basically the main reason why I made my homemade version of Nutella, because it can actually be a great "choco" spread that you can use for pancakes, homemade bread, bananas, cakes...whatever!


cca 350








  • 300 g hazelnuts
  • 30 g unsweetened cocoa powder (raw)
  • 5-6  dry pitted dates
  • 2-4  tbs agave syrup
  • 120 ml hazelnut milk

Roast (bake) the hazelnuts for about 10 minutes on 200C. Take them out and clean their skin.

Place in a food processor and blend until you get practically a hazelnut "butter", which can take a few minutes.

Add the cocoa powder, dates and agave and mix to incorporate all the ingredients and then pour in the milk and blend until you get a nice smooth paste. I use a Magimix food processor, so it doesn't take me a lot of time to make the spread, but I guess it depends on what you use.

I advise you to add the dates and agave syrup gradually so you can adapt the ingredients to your taste.

I don't like a very sweet taste in my delights, so the main taste of the spread is hazelnut and cocoa, obviously.
