Homemade Nutella (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

This decadent hazelnut chocolate spread is absurdly good, easy to make, and surprisingly not that bad for you! (Adapted from The Kitchn.)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: about 2 cups

Ingredients

2 cups toasted hazelnuts, peeled
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted to liquid form
1 cup powdered sugar (check that it's GF if that's a concern)
1/2 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

  1. Blend the hazelnuts and coconut oil until they form a paste. Add the remaining ingredients and continue blending, scraping down the sides as necessary, until it is as smooth as possible.
  2. Transfer your homemade bliss into a jar or resealable container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Note on equipment: If you have a high powered blender like a Vitamix, now is the time to use it. Otherwise, a food processor will work just fine, you may just have to scrape down the sides and process a bit longer to get the smooth consistency you want.
