Homemade Vegan Nutella

timerPrep Time: 10 minutes

groupsServes: 1 jar People

Rich, chocolatey and indulgent this healthy homemade chocolate spread is just like the original - only better. This vegan and dairy-free “Nutella” is made with good-for-you ingredients and only requires a few minutes of your time. There is also a sugar-free option for a really intense chocolate version.


400g hazelnuts, skin off or on

40g coconut sugar, optional (omit for an intense cocoa hazelnut butter)

40g cocoa powder

1 ½ tbsp olive oil

1 tsp vanilla essence

A pinch of salt


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180Fan/200ºC and add the hazelnuts to a large tray. Bake for 10 minutes, tossing halfway through. If you are using hazelnuts with the skin on, now transfer the warm nuts to a cloth and vigorously rub and remove the skins. Allow the nuts to cool fully. If using sugar, add the sugar to a food processor and blend to a fine powder consistency.

Step 2

For the Nutella: add the nuts to a food processor and blend until really smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Depending on the power of your machine, this may take 1-5 minutes.

Step 3

To make it chocolatey: now add in the sugar, if using, the cocoa powder, olive oil, vanilla and salt. Blend again until fully incorporated.

Step 4

To serve: enjoy like you’d use regular chocolate spread for example on toast, pancakes or from the jar. Allow to cool and keep in a sealed jar for 2 weeks.
