Finally! A guilt-free, healthier Version of Nutella made with nutritious ingredients.

Raw cacao is  rich in antioxidants, iron and magnesium; hazelnuts provide healthy fats, fiber and iron and dates are also filled with lots of nutrients, making this the perfect treat.


3/4 cup of raw hazelnuts
18 dates
1/4 to 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk or water
1/4 cup of melted cacao butter **
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp of raw cacao powder

1/2 to 1 tbsp of raw honey


  •  Run hazelnuts   in a food processor until finely ground, almost to a butter consistency
  • Add the dates one by one and the raw cacao and continue to blend until a paste is formed
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. For softer consistency add more almond milk or water.

**be careful not to over heat the cacao butter, I put it in a small bowl and placed it over warm/hot water

Store in refrigerator
makes about 2 cups

  1. Thanks for the wonderful recipes D! Can you tell me if you buy the nuts and dates you use in bulk and if so, where?! Thanks!!!


    1. I shop at mothers market , but since I go through so many almonds I recently ordered 25 lbs from because they had organic raw Italian almonds for $6.50 per lb plus free shipping . I keep them in the freezer


  2. How long does it last in the fridge? Not that I’m expecting the ridiculously long shelf life of nutella, I’m just curious so we can make an amount we can eat before it goes bad.


  3. I discovered your blog through the link for this recipe on Facebook. I love the idea of making my own Nutella. Do you have any online sources for some of the things you use? Sadly, I live in Kansas where their idea of a health food store is expensive vitamin supplements and occasionally some elderberry concentrate. Thanks!


    1. Hello Dawn, I get most of my stuff through Amazon? I have amazon prime so I get second day free shipping. If you go on my blog on the right hand side there is a link to my amazon affiliate store with some of my favorite products
