Remember when I told you all that I would be making a lot of Nutella recipes?
Well that idea kind of fell on its face. I ended up taking the jar of Nutella out every so often, grabbing a spoon, and just eat a scoop. If I was feeling fancy, I would add some peanut butter.
I know, right? I’m super classy.
Easy Homemade Nutella that is vegan and gluten free. Made with cocoa powder, and healhier than the kinds you will find in grocery stores.
- 2 cups boiling water
- 3 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 cup hazelnuts
- 12 oz chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
In a medium saucepan, bring the 2 cups water to a boil. Add the baking soda, then add the hazelnuts. Boil for around 3 minutes. The water will be black.
Pour the hazelnuts into a colander and turn on the cold water faucet. Using your hands, roll off the peels.
Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
Boil 5 cups of water and pour in a medium bowl.
Place the chocolate chips in a smaller bowl, and place it into the bowl full of water. Mix the chocolate chips until the mixture is smooth, making sure not to let the water mix in with the chocolate.
Dry the hazelnuts, and bake in the preheated oven for around 12 minutes. Remove and let cool.
In a food processor, pulse the hazelnuts until it forms a paste. Add the oil, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt, and process until mixture is smooth. Add the melted chocolate and blend well.
