Vegan “Nutella” Recipe

Yep. It happened. You’ve found yourself watching Real Housewives & very much craving bananas & Nutella. I can’t be the only person who has this urge sometimes. Years ago, I used to literally sit down with a little glass jar of the delicious chocolate hazelnut spread, and just eat away. I’m a tiny lady, always have been, but I could down an entire jar by myself. It’s something I tend to boast about actually, I’m rather proud of my Nutella gluttony. But sadly, I don’t do that anymore. Although Nutella is chock full of vitamins & calcium, it’s also riddled with sugar & carbs! And skim milk, which is dairy, which is blah. So, without further adieu, I give you…

Vegan “NOT-ella”

Ingredients:notella

  • 1 1/2 cups hazelnuts
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 3-4 tbsp vegetable or safflower oil
  • 2 tbsp soy milk

Preparation:

Using a food processor, grind the hazelnuts until fine and powdery. Process for another minute or two. If your food processor is strong enough, the hazelnuts will eventually turn creamy and smooth. If you’re using a less powerful food processor, this won’t happen.Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth and creamy, adding a little bit more or less liquid to get desired consistency.
You can also use this recipe in baking as well! Such as Vegan notella cookies, brownies & pies. Mmmm, I can taste it already đŸ™‚
