Nutella could be my biggest weakness. Chocolate and hazelnuts together is a mouthwatering combination. I’m sure I don’t have to convince you, after all you clicked on this page. It’s been years since we’ve had Nutella in my house, but I haven’t forgotten how delicious it tastes. I can’t wait to share this healthy rendition of Nutella with my guests this weekend. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
1 cup of dates soaked overnight in 1 cup of water
1 cup hazelnuts
1/2 cup premium quality cocoa powder
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 300. Place hazelnuts on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Roast for 15 minutes. Monitor carefully as you don’t want them to burn. Skins start to flake off when they are ready. Remove from oven and let cool.
Place all ingredients in food processor fitted with an s-blade. The soaking water from the dates should be included. Blend well until hazelnuts are broken down into crumb-size pieces.
