Recipe: Home made Nutella (Vegan, sugar free, low carb)

Sugar Free Nutella

1 1/2 cups raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup hazelnut oil
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 tbpsn cocoa powder
2 tbpsn liquid stevia


  • Roast the hazelnuts on a piece of foil at 135C (275F) for 15 minutes
  • Remove the tray from the oven and wrap the foil around the nuts, let the nuts sit for 10 minutes wrapped in foil as this will loosen the skin on the roasted nuts
  • Place the roasted kernels on one side of a clean kitchen towel, double the towel over the nuts and rub vigorously to remove the skins
  • Melt the coconut oil in a pan or microwave
  • Put the nuts and hazelnut oil into a blender and pulse until grainy
  • Add the cocoa, coconut oil and stevia
  • Blend on "Liquify" mode until a smooth liquid is formed
  • If liquid stevia is not available dissolve 4 tbspns of stevia powder into the melted coconut oil before using or a grainy texture will result
  • 1/4 cup skim milk powder can be added to get that "just like store bought" taste but compensate by adding an additional tablespoon of oil
  • You can buy hazelnut oil at Safeway or specialty stores but if not available substitute with a light vegetable oil like canola or grapeseed
  • Pour into a jar and refrigerate
  • Try not to eat the whole jar
