For the breakfast, what can be more delicious than a
thick layer of nutella, spread on a toast and consumed with a cup of your morning coffee? Hmm, sounds like a perfect start of the day!
As you already figured out, this post is dedicated to nutella lovers ☺. And also to all healthy lifestyle adherents since today we will be making a healthy version of nutella. I found the original recipe on this website and after a couple of modifications I got my homemade nutella tasting almost identical to a regular one. Only mine is so much better
This time instead of providing a list of benefits I decided to post the nutrition values of a regular and my homemade nutellas, you can check them at the end of the post. You can do the math by yourself☺ Just compare the calories per serving: 200 calories vs. 94 calories – and feel the difference!
Hazelnuts, roasted, whole – 1 cup
Cocoa powder – 5 tbsp
Agave Nectar – 4 tbsp
Stevia – 4 packets
Milk, 1% – 2/3 cup*
Salt – a pinch
*You can use milk of your choice.
1. Soak ½ cup hazelnuts in cold water for a few hours (I left overnight). Skip this step if you want more crunchy nutella.
2. Mix all the ingredients in the food processor until very smooth. It took me about 3 minutes to get the desired result.
Store your homemade nutella in the fridge.
▪ Prep time: 3 min (+ several hours for soaking)

Are you more a nutella or peanut butter lover?
