Homemade Nutella

Posted · 7 Comments

Homemade Nutella. The wonderful creamy, silky, chocolatey, hazelnut spread that is adored by chocolate lovers throughout the world! Me being me, I had to try my hand at making it at home! If it can be packaged, it can be made at home… much healthier. I altered this recipe a bit from Steph Chows blog. I added coconut oil to make it a bit silkier and to add a bit of nutritional punch!

Did you know — Coconut oil improves digestion, strengthens the immune system, and protects against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections.

(You can tell in the image that it’s a little bit chunkier than I had wanted. My blender burned out a couple weeks ago making homemade gyro’s :( I used my mini food processor which did the best it possibly could.. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can… LOL!)


  • 1/2 cup raw hazelnuts
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 3 tbs real maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs coconut oil


  1. Roast hazelnuts in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.

  2. Remove the skins by rubbing them with your hands.

  3. Blend the hazelnuts in a food processor or blender until they form into a thick butter.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
  5. Put into a jar and refrigerate.

Buen Provecho!!

    I made homemade nutella a while back and it was fantastic!! I used some virgin coconut oil and some expeller pressed to keep the coconutty flavor (and cost) down a little. I thought about spreading it on toast, but ended up eating most of it out of the jar with a spoon. Lovely photos!
