Almost Healthy Nutella recipe


Makes around 2 cups

  • 2 cups raw hazelnuts
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp agave
  • 1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used regular, but you can substitute your choice of non-dairy milk, such as almond or soy)


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread hazelnuts into a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 10-15 minutes, until nuts become fragrant, lightly browned and skins are blistered. Place roasted hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel and rub them to remove the skins (don’t worry if there are some stubborn skins that won’t come off).
  • Place hazelnuts in a food processor and blend until the texture resembles nut butter. Add remaining ingredients and blend for a few minutes until smooth. Add additional sweetener to taste.
