Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
Nutella? I don't think so! This is SO much better, and SO much healthier than the processed and sugar laden stuff we are offered in the supermarkets. This is the real deal, and the best thing is that you can make it to your liking. If you want it creamier, add a little bit more coconut solids (or even the milk), or if you want it sweeter you can add a date. Hell, if you want it more chocolatey then add more cacao powder :-)
Cuisine: vegan, raw
Recipe type: sandwich spread
Prep time: 
Total time: 
You need
  • 2 cups of hazelnuts (mine were activated)
  • the coconut solids that float at the top of a can of light coconut milk (if it's warm weather, put the can in the fridge for a few hours)
  • 5 tbsp of coconut milk
  • 3 dates
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
To do
  1. (if you have a high powered blender, you can use that, if not, use your food processor but it will take longer to get the nuts to a paste. I used a good blender). - add the hazelnuts to your blender, and let it run till it is a paste
  2. add all the rest of the ingredients
  3. run till nice and smooth, and add more coconut milk if you prefer it thinner, also, add a date if not sweet enough for your liking
  4. Use on toast, or dilute a little more with coconut milk to use as a dip for fruit, or use as a base for a drink.
