Date Hazelnut Chocolate Spread – Healthy Nutella

This Date Hazelnut Chocolate Spread is a healthy flavorful hazelnut spread made without refined sugar, using dates instead. It is a delicious way to enjoy life’s sweet moments without any of the unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients.

Our spread gets its sweetness from natural date paste, bringing a yummy caramel-like taste without the need for refined sugar. Dates are not just sweet, they’re packed with good stuff like fiber, potassium, and antioxidants. Mix in some top-quality hazelnuts, some good quality cocoa powder and you’ve got a spread that’s both nutty and chocolaty.

Say goodbye to artificial additives and excess sugar, our spread is all about keeping it simple and good for you. Spread it on whole-grain toast, mix it into yogurt, or enjoy it straight from the spoon. Each bite is a tasty way to treat yourself without guilt

How to make date chocolate hazelnut spread 

Begin by preparing the sweet date paste. Combine dates and boiling water in a food processor, blending until a smooth paste forms. Set it aside for later.

Next, preheat your oven to 300F (150C). Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast them for 15 minutes. Allow them to cool, then gently rub them between your hands to remove the skin.

Transfer these toasted hazelnuts to a food processor and grind them for about 10 minutes until a thick paste is achieved. Now, add in the date paste, coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt. Keep processing until the mixture turns velvety smooth.

Pour in the milk and mix until everything is well combined. If you prefer a thinner consistency, slowly add more milk until you reach your desired thickness.

Now, it’s ready to be served immediately, or pop it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy this delightful treat. Hope you will try this delightful Date Hazelnut Chocolate Spread. If you do make sure to share the photos with me on Instagram. Would love to see how they turn out for you.

    Dattel Haselnuss Schokoladen Creme bereite ich auch gerne zu, aber mit selbstgemachter Haselnussmich – Haselnuss Drink, so ist das Rezept vegan.
