Last year we discovered the joys of Nutella- a chocolately hazelnut dream that we love to spread on crepes, toast and dip fruit in. I recently saw a recipe online for rawtella- a healthier version of the one we love. Well, I tried it last night and it was no good. So this morning I did some tweaking and came up with this version. Bri and I even pulled the real deal out of the cupboard and taste tested both. They taste almost identical, except my recipe is not nearly as smooth. I think if you could grind the hazelnuts into a meal or very finely than it would go together much smoother. Makes sure you refrigerate too. It tastes great cold with a banana!
1 C hazelnuts (meal or just full)
abt 1 C water
4 T cocoa
1/2 C agave
1 tsp vanilla
1 T coconut oil
pinch of salt
In your high powered blender mix the hazelnuts and water until you get a smooth consistency. Add the remaining ingredients and process until completely combined. Chill and then serve.
