Homemade Healthy Nutella Recipe

This homemade healthy nutella recipe tastes even better than the original. The best part is its actually healthy, organic, and lower in sugar. If you have not looked at the label on Nutella, you may not realize that it's more than 50% palm oil and sugar. Surprisingly the nuts and cocoa make up less than half of the jar. The pre-made nutella in the grocery store has 21 grams of sugar per 2 tbsp. of the spread!

If you or your kids are hooked on this stuff, try swapping it out for this healthy homemade version to make this a healthy snack. Hazelnuts are quite nutrient dense. Just one ounce of hazelnuts provides the following:

  • Calories: 176
  • Total fat: 17 grams
  • Protein: 4.2 grams
  • Carbs: 4.7 grams
  • Fiber: 2.7 grams
  • Vitamin E: 21% of the RDI
  • Thiamin: 12% of the RDI
  • Magnesium: 12% of the RDI
  • Copper: 24% of the RDI
  • Manganese: 87% of the RDI

Without the large amount of added sugar, you can call hazelnut butter a healthy food but I wouldn't call Nutella healthy!

My son and I made this recipe in abut 15 minutes and he eats as an after school snack most days. Give this homemade healthy nutella recipe a try…

  • Place your hazelnuts into the Vitamix and blend until it turns into nut butter
  • Add the remaining ingredients
  • Blend for 1 minute, stop and scrape down the sides
  • Blend for another minute. Taste and adjust as desired.
  • Pour into a glass jar and cover it. This is shelf stable and can be stored in your pantry but you may prefer to keep it in the fridge if you like it to be more firm.
