vegan chocolate hazelnut spread
Vegan Nutella – two magic words that almost feel a little reverent at first. That must have been how Harry Potter felt before his first “Expecto Patronatum.” Is that really possible? Nutella in vegan? Might seem impossible at first, but it’s not. And this recipe here is living proof.
Past times are those moments when I longingly glance at the supermarket shelf for the Nutella jar. Yes, you caught me, before my switch to a vegan diet, I was a wee bit of a Nutella addict. Quasi to the extent that I could easily, armed only with a spoon, finish a jar. No problemo!
vegan Nutella with two ingredients
You can sit back, for once the success of this recipe does not depend on your skills! But on the power of your kitchen appliance. As mentioned earlier, you need an appliance that can grind the hazelnuts very creamy. This can be done with a powerful food processor, or blender.
But if you now fancy yourself on the sofa while the machine does the work, I have to disappoint you. You’ve got a little bit of work to do.
As I said, the success of this recipe really only depends on how creamy your result will be. Because a Nutella with pieces nobody wants. Whereas I have to admit that I was a bit lazy with the second attempt for this recipe and didn’t mix as well. As you can see from the pictures.
Of course, the quality of your ingredients matters too. The better the quality, the more delicious the taste experience! Therefore, be sure to buy organic or Demeter quality. For the chocolate, I would look for a cocoa content of at least 85%. So the chocolate is nice and creamy when melting in a water bath.
Less Waste Tips
Actually, you are already very Less Waste on the way with the recipe. A few tips I still have:
- Buy unpackaged hazelnuts. If nuts are in season, you can buy them at the weekly market or, of course, collect them yourself. The latter is free! But please leave some for the wild animals! Personally, I always buy my hazelnuts in bulk.
- The chocolate you could of course also make yourself and save waste.
Alternatives to the products used
If you want a semi-authentic vegan Nutella, you probably can’t get around the combination of hazelnuts and chocolate. After all, Nutella is a chocolate-hazelnut spread.
But of course, if you have allergies or other reasons, you are welcome to experiment and take other nuts. The recipe should actually work with all nuts.
Meal Prep Tips
Actually, this paragraph is superfluous. The homemade vegan Nutella with two ingredients should be prepared of course in the best case in advance. Because between us, you will hardly be in the mood to mix a batch of Nutella in the morning at eight o’clock, so you can prepare yourself a slice of bread. Not to mention the fact that you will mutate into the biggest enemy of your neighbors if you make a lot of noise with your blender for 10 minutes at this early hour.
Therefore, always have a jar handy. The Nutella also keeps easily 2-3 weeks if you store it in a screw jar as dark as possible. Storage in the refrigerator is not recommended. Unless you like Nutella en block. Thanks to the chocolate, Nutella tends to get hard as a rock at refrigerator temperatures. If you still accidentally packed it in the fridge, then do not panic. Simply melt again in a water bath.
Why you should try this vegan Nutella with two ingredients:

- 200 g hazelnuts organic
- 85-100 g dark chocolate 85%* organic
- 1 pinch salt optional, organic
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract optional, organic
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon optional, organic
Preheat oven to 200° Celsius.
Spread hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast in the center of the oven for about 5 minutes until cracks start to form in the shell and itstarts to smell like hazelnuts.*.
Remove hazelnuts from oven, let cool and remove shell.*.
Break chocolate into pieces and melt over a bain-marie.*
Place hazelnuts in food processor or high-powered blender. Blend until you have a liquid andsmooth hazelnut paste.
Add liquid chocolate and other ingredients if needed. Blend well again and pour Nutella into a sealable jar.
*Use chocolate with 85% cocoa or up. The amount of chocolate depends on your preference. If you like it hazelnuttier, then less chocolate. If you like it more chocolatey, then more chocolate.
*Don’t let the hazelnuts out of your sight in the oven. Roasting times can vary greatly depending on the oven and suddenly the nuts are burnt.
*The easiest way to remove the shell is with a towel. Place nuts in the towel, roll back and forth several times on a hard surface. The shells should come off practically by themselves this way.
*No water should splash into the chocolate and the bowl you are melting the chocolate in should not be touching the water bath.
*Store Nutella at room temperature in a kitchen cupboard. This way it will keep for 2 to 3 weeks.
