Raw Hazelnut Chocolate Coconut Spread

This one really challenged my blender. Its my second time working with nuts and I guess I’ll just have to accept the fact that my blender is not able to process them to a smooth nut butter. Nevertheless did it turn out pretty yummy after I spent quite some time with this mousse-like spread.

Last week I tried myself on peanut butter. I didn’t soak them first so that my blender had a loot of work. It would just ground them instead of changing the consistency, and i poured oil, agave syrup and eventually just water to it. I ended up with the stickiest peanut butter ever, hard to spread and pretty chewy. Luckily I like it though. Until I opened a jar of store-bought peanut butter today and… well, what should I say. They sure know how to get us ;)

Back to the Hazelnut spread. I let them soak for about an hour and threw them in the blender. I had to add quite a big amount of liquid until my blender caught on the nuts. But then it finally worked and I was more than pleased with the result. Here is what I used:

200g of hazelnuts
a few tsp of cocoa powder
1/3 cup of coconut cream
5 dates
(3-5 dl water or milk or both)

Throw everything in your blender, except for the liquids. If your machine is good enough, you won’t need it ;)

This spread is a good alternative to Nutella & Co. It’s rich, tasty and you actually know what’s in there.

Preserved, it suits perfect as a gift. Like here, for my Foodie-Penpal.

    • Thanks! Use it up quick though, it gets bad real fast… I unfortunately had to throw away most of it cause after about 3 days it starts to get sour! Nuts are always best when eaten fresh. You surely know that as a Nutaholic :P Tell me when you found THE nutella!
