ITS WORLD NUTELLA DAY!
I – like every other normal human – used to be a Nutella NUT CASE. Once upon a time, I would make Nutella sandwiches with a spread thicker than both slices of bread and was also 100% a culprit of buying a jar of nutella with the sole intention of eating it only with a spoon.
Here I am today, on world Nutella day, living a gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan life style and I couldn’t pass up this opportunity to spread the word that you that you don’t have to give up the famous flavour of everyones favourite chocolate spread!
This recipe can be made organic, raw, gluten free, vegan & refined SUGAR FREE ! Which makes it totally ok to eat it off the spoon … occasionally !
1 cup Hazelnut Meal *
1/4 cup Raw Cacao Powder
1/4 cup Organic Coconut Milk – or as much as you need to reach the desired consistency
2 Medijool Dates
3 TBSP Agave syrup
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper
Pinch of pink salt flakes
Blitz with an immersion blender or in food processor !
* If you’re not strict on raw & like a more intense flavour you can mildly toast the nut meal for a few minutes over a low heat in a sauce pan until the hazelnut aroma is released.
