Home-made Hazelnut Spread

Move over Nutella, no room for you here.

Home-made Chocolate & Hazelnut Spread, using nothing but the beauty of natural ingredients.

Whenever I am walking home from the bus stop, I always detour via Scoop Wholefoods in Mosman. I browse for about 10 minutes, as I source out at least $5 worth of goodies due to the Eftpos minimum ha!

However it is worth it. Each time, I leave with different ingredients, eager to get home and whip up a storm in my kitchen!

Today was a Nut Day; hazelnut and macadamia 

Something a little diverse, and certainly something a little tasty.  

When you buy nuts, you can do one of 2 things.

  1. Store them in an air-tight jar in the fridge for snack purposes
  2. Blend up a Nut Butter Creation!

I always choose 2.  



Not-ella Spread

Ingredients

  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • 1 heaped tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 2 heaped tbsp cacao powder
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • Cacao nibs

Method

  • Blend the hazelnuts in a food processor until finely chopped
  • Melt the honey and coconut oil, adding into the Nut mixture
  • Add 1 tbsp water, blend
  • Add the cacao powder, blend
  • Add the rest of the water & cacao nibs
  • Blend until a smooth, rich and fluffy texture forms – depending on your blender, you may need more wet ingredients for a smoother consistency. However, if you like your nut spread crunchy, then adapt to suit your preference!
