Have you ever dreamt of eating a chocolate spread without guilt? Well, I am here to make your dreams come true. 

This delicious vegan nutella recipe requires only 5 ingredients, yes ONLY 5! No refined sugar at all and it is extremely delicious. It is gone in hours in our household...but is guilt free, so that is ok :). 


Servings: 10 - Prep Time: 30 mins - Cooking Time: 20 mins



  • 250 grams of raw hazelnuts

  • 10 medjool dates

  • 3 tbsp of cocoa powder

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 50 ml hazelnut milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F. Spread the hazelnuts onto a baking sheet and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. 

  2. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Then pick up handfuls at a time and rub firmly between your palm so the skin falls off. Place the hazelnuts in a high-speed blender or food processor. 

  3. Blend for 3-5 minutes, stopping if needed occasionally to scrape down the sides, until a thin nut butter consistency is formed. 

  4. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again for an additional 3-5 minutes until smooth and well incorporated. Store in an airtight jar in the fridge. Enjoy!


  • Milk replacement: Instead of hazelnut milk, you can use any other plant-based milk or dairy milk of your choice. I like the strong flavour of hazelnut. 

  • Sweetness: If this is not sweet enough for you, you can add more dates or any other natural sweetener such as maple syrup or agave syrup.

  • Storage: Store in an airtight jar in the fridge.
