I really craved something like nutella on bread, but instead I ended up making a yummy and healthy chocolate spread. It’s super easy and quick to make, and you can store it in the fridge for about 2 weeks (maybe longer, I ate mine too quick to find out 😉 ). If you want it to taste more like nutella, you can use hazelnuts instead of almonds. This tastes delicious on homemade bread (picture below), pancakes, on banana slices, or alone 🙂
What you need:
1 cup almonds
3 large, soft dates, pitted (I used mejool dates)
1 tbs + 1 tsp cacao
2 tbs maple syrup
2 tbs coconut oil (or other oil)
1/4 cup almond milk (or whichever milk you’d like)
What you do:
In a good blender or food processor, start of by blending the nuts, until a nut butter consistency. (I took me about 1 minute with the Nutri bullet blender). Thereafter, add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
You might want to use hazelnuts if you want the spread to taste more like Nutella. For a thinner consistency, add little bit more milk.
