- 1/4 cup hazelnut meal
- Note: for a smoother texture run the hazelnut meal in a coffee grinder - works great!
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
Result? It tastes just like the real thing! Probably a little healthier than the real thing too. I don't care what the commercials say 'nothing but hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa'. Whatever,....I've seen the ingredients; there's more than that in there (including palm oil, soy lecithin, etc..). Again, as per usual, I'd rather just make it myself.
Did you know that although Nutella is originally an Italian product the main manufacturing plant for North America is in Brantford, Ontario? I didn't know that until today. Even better is manufacturing it in my own home though :-)
