Everybody loves Nutella. That, my friends, is a fact.
Never have I met anyone who doesn't like the stuff - whether they have it on toast or with fruit, use it in baking or eat it just straight out the jar with a spoon (a very dangerous move and a sure way to end up holding an empty jar..) - everyone loves it.
It's a guilty pleasure for all, but now I've taken the guilt right out of with my recipe for Skinny Nutella.
Disclaimer - eating this will not make you skinny but it will be a little nicer to your body so you can enjoy more of it!
This lil gem is dairy, gluten and sugar free; as well as being raw and suitable for vegans. If that's not enough for ya, the recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes and will keep for a good few weeks in the fridge for whenever you need a Nutella moment.
I've been enjoying mine for breakfast on toasted spelt bread with bananas and chia seeds.
Being healthy sure does look good, doesn't it?
75g (1/2 cup) hazelnuts
20g (4 tbsp) cacao powder
8 dates (1/4 cup approx.)
2 tbsp maple syrup
4 tbsp non-dairy milk (soy, almond, hazelnut)
- In a food processor or high speed blender, blitz the nuts so they are finely ground.
- Add in the cacao powder and keep blitzing until the mixture comes together in a smooth paste.
- Add in the dates and syrup and mix once more, the mixture will thicken slightly so now add the milk and blend again until it is silky smooth - like nutella/nut butter. You may need more milk.
- Taste for sweetness/richness and add more cacao/syrup/dates to your taste! Enjoy.
