This Nutella chocolate spread is lactose free, gluten free, vegan, super easy to make and delicious creamy.


  • 2 full cups roasted hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or a few soaked and peeled Medjool dates
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • a few tablespoons of water
  • optional: vanilla essence


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (350 F). Roast the hazelnuts for about 10 minutes in the oven. When they start to smell good, take them out to cool off a few minutes. Place the hazelnuts in a food processor and mix until you have a sticky flour consistency and all chunky pieces are gone. A blender will not work for this recipe. However, any cheap food processor will do. Add the maple syrup and cacao and mix again. When all is mixed slowly add a little bit of water. This will make the spread a spread as thick or thin as you like. Add two tablespoons of water per time until you have the consistency you like. Store in a jar in the fridge.
