Love the delicious flavor of nutella? This is a 5 minute delicious recipe, that will also be good for you! Hazelnuts have good essential fatty acids that are needed in all of your cells to maintain health, and if you choose raw cacao powder, you will be giving your body a high source of magnesium and antioxidants which help us to fight off disease.
1-2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (or even better is raw cacao powder which has not been processed at all and retains all the antioxidants and no sugar)
1-2 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup
Place hazelnut butter in a shallow bowl.
Add cocoa powder and mix it into the nut butter with a fork.
Mix in honey or maple syrup. Taste and adjust seasonings. If you need to thin the mixture, add halzelnut oil, walnut oil, or coconut oil (warmed to liquid consistency).
*To make your own hazlenut butter, toast hazelnuts on a cookie sheet in a 400 degrees oven for about 10 minutes. Remove as much of the nut skins as possible in a damp towel, add to a food processor and process into a paste.
