Homemade Rawtella ~ 

A raw version of Nutella, a delicious European chocolate-hazelnut spread.

Nutella, in its original form, was first created in the 1940s by Mr. Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker and founder of the Ferrero company. At the time, cocoa was in short supply because of rationing due to World War II, so chocolate was very limited. So Mr. Ferrero used hazelnuts, which are plentiful in the Piedmont region of Italy (northwest), to extend the chocolate supply.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoon raw cocoa or carob powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey, or stevia, or Muscovado sugar
  • 1 tablespoon raw coconut oil
  • flax or nut oil
Preparation:

Food process raw hazelnuts for several minutes until clumpy and oily. Add cocoa/carob, vanilla, sea salt, coconut oil and honey/stevia, and process until smooth. Stir in flax or nut oil until you reach desired consistency.

Quantities of cocoa/carob, vanilla, sea salt, sweetener, and oil may be adjusted to taste. It would be best and a bit healthier when soaking your hazalnuts overnight. (But be sure to use it up fast, because it doesn’t hold the hazelnut flavor very long.)

Very yummy spread on a banana! Enjoy  😉
