Homemade Nutella

I love love love it when I make something that taste pretty identical to something everyone loves. This Homemade Nutella really is just like the original product, but with a huge nutritional twist!

I made this at 21:30 the other night because I really fancied something chocolatey and I didn’t have any cacao butter to make raw chocolate, so I looked at what I had in the cupboards and I was like “a chocolate nut butter? that could work?” – and it did! Yay! (and better yet it tastes like Nutella)!

Here are some of the wonderful benefits of Hazelnuts:

Skin Health: Hazelnuts contain Vitamin E which has been proven to protect skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation and premature ageing.

Digestive Health: Rich in manganese which promotes protein and carbohydrate metabolism. The high content of fibre in hazelnuts assures regular movement too 😉

Cardiovascular Health: Rich in unsaturated fats, which can raise the ‘good’ HDL cholesterol in the blood.

Muscular Health: Magnesium regulates the amount of calcium that goes in and out of the cells in the body, which can avoid muscle tension, soreness, spasm, cramps and fatigue.

Bone and Joint Health: Manganese is a mineral essential for the growth and strength of bones.

Here are some step-by-step pictures to show you how easy it is to make.

Step 1. Roast hazelnuts in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

Step 2. Take out of the oven and roll in you hands so the shells come off. You can leave the nuts to cool down before doing so, or just use a piece of kitchen roll (not all the shells will come off, but that’s fine).

Step 3. Place the nuts, maple and cacao powder in a food processor and blend.

Step 6. It should be nice and sticky now (this actually tastes so nice, so I probably lost some mixture along the way lol).

Step 7. Add the water and blend for a few minutes.

Step 8. You may need to scrap down the edges once or twice, just to make sure that everything is evenly blended. It should be completely smooth after a few minutes.
