Almost Primal Nutella

22 07 2011

Since going primal a few weeks ago, there are a few things that I have definitely been missing. Nutella is one of the them. But it’s full of vegetable oils that are mostly hydrogenated, so I decided to make my own.

I used:

2 cups of hazelnuts, raw and still sheathed in their shells

1/3 cup of organic cocoa powder (next time I would use half that amount, I found the flavour overly strong)

1/2-1 cup of 2% organic cow’s milk

2 TBLS of organic coconut oil

1/4 cup of icing sugar *gasp!*


Toss the hazelnuts into a food processor. Turning them into nut butter will take a while. Stop it every couple of minutes to scrape down the sides. Eventually, the nuts will start to release their oil and they will turn into a nut butter. Add the cocoa powder and process for another minute. Add the milk while the processor is still going. Add it slowly. You might need more, you might need less. Stopp the processor and taste it. If it’s got a good flavour, add the coconut oil and sugar and process for another minute.

Voila! Almost primal (but not really because it has sugar) nutella!
