Low Carb, Homemade and healthy!
Never live another day without a jar of the famous hazelnut spread, Nutella, at home. Making it at home is surprisingly easy and very satisfying. To start, you’ll need a bag, or 2 cups, of hazelnuts. But which hazelnuts? If you have raw hazelnuts, we would strongly suggest roasting them first. Roasting nuts brings out their rich, nutty flavors much more than leaving them raw. In this recipe, we roast our nuts and we’ll show you how! If you choose to buy roasted hazelnuts, try to buy ones with their skins already off. The fewer skins you put in your homemade Nutella, the better the consistency will be.
In this recipe, we included two different versions of the spread, each of which turned out amazing! The different versions of the ingredients can be found in the sidebar. The keto version has ingredients that are higher in fat and lower in carbs, such as erythritol. The paleo version omits the dairy and leaves the sweetener up to you! You can use a number of things in place of traditional and processed white sugar. Your paleo options range from honey, coconut sugar, agave or maple syrup, medjool dates, bananas to Stevia… you can find a list of sweeteners and their glycemic indexes here and some more info here.
While you’re making this recipe, you may notice the homemade Nutella heats up in your food processor or Nutribullet. This happens because of the prolonged blending time and friction and is totally normal. If you find that your device itself is heating up, you may want to give it a little break in between blending.
Let’s make some homemade Nutella!
