18 Tbsp
20 min

A smooth and creamy homemade Sugar-free Nutella made with raw cacao powder and sweetened with stevia. With the natural oils of roasted hazelnuts and no added oil or sugar, this healthy Nutella makes the perfect low carb spread. Vegan too!

Let’s be honest, I think most of us are Nutella fans here and can probably finish spoonfuls of it straight out of the jar!

Well I for sure am, but after realizing - a while ago - that it’s got so so much sugar in there, I just stopped.

At this point I don’t even remember the last time I had the OG Nutella.

Well the cravings never die, so I decided to just make my own healthy version of that chocolate hazelnut spread without any of the sugar.

Roommate-tested recipe here, so it was definitely on point!

Wrap nuts in paper towels and rub vigorously to remove as many lose skins as possible - this makes it more creamy.

If mixture gets too hot, stop processing and allow to cool for a bit before continuing.

    Instead of stevia can we use anything else

      Hi Anna,

      You can use the Sugar equivalent, which is 1 tablespoon of sugar or any other sweetener of your choice.
