Did you know that it’s really, really easy to make your own Nutella®-type spread? I’m here to tell you that it is! My kids were amazed by this stuff, and I must say that I liked it better than the store bought kind. The original recipe can be found at Hell Yeah It’s Vegan!
This is another recipe that allowed me to use my Nutri Ninja. It was so easy to just layer all of the ingredients in one of the blender cups and let the blender do the rest. I couldn’t find whole hazelnuts at the store, so I used hazelnut meal instead. It worked out just fine. I also used 2 Tbsp. oil in the spread, otherwise there wasn’t enough liquid to blend it properly.
This is what it looked like when it was finished. The consistency was similar to a non-Newtonian fluid, if you know what that is. Like when you mix cornstarch and water to make a fluid that resists force, but becomes liquid again when left to rest. One full recipe of this spread was enough to feed all seven of us for breakfast, with just a tad leftover. It was absolutely delicious and we highly recommend it!
