Finally! A guilt-free, healthier Version of Nutella made with nutritious ingredients.

Raw cacao is  rich in antioxidants, iron and magnesium; hazelnuts provide healthy fats, fiber and iron and dates are also filled with lots of nutrients, making this the perfect treat.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of raw hazelnuts
18 dates
1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk or water
1/4 cup of melted cacao butter **
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp of raw cacao powder

Preparation:

  •  Run hazelnuts   in a food processor until finely ground
  • Add the dates one by one and the raw cacao and continue to blend until a paste is formed
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. For softer consistency add more almond milk or water.

**be careful not to over heat the cacao butter, I put it in a small bowl and placed it over warm/hot water

Store in refrigerator
makes about 2 cups

      I shop at mothers market , but since I go through so many almonds I recently ordered 25 lbs from essentiallivingfoods.com because they had organic raw Italian almonds for $6.50 per lb plus free shipping . I keep them in the freezer

      not at all! I must admit that this one is expensive; however, it is still cheaper than regular nutella. fresh food is cheaper than processed food.
