Vegan Nutella - with NO oil and NO sugar - for a delicious and nutritious treat. Spread on top of your favourite crepes or pancake!
(Omit this 1st step if you have bought roasted hazelnuts).
On a baking tray, spread out the hazelnuts and bake at 180°C for 10 to 12 minutes.
Take the hazelnuts out of the oven and wait until they have chilled, then remove the very thin and brown layer on top of each ones.
Place the hazelnuts in your food processor and blend for a minute or 2(depending on the speed of your food processor) until the nuts are finely ground and sticky.
Add the cacao powder, salt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, soya cream and mix until it becomes very smooth (for about 30 seconds).
You want to achieve a smooth and thick consistency.
Optional: add 1 tbsp. of chia seeds to the mix and mix one more time.
Transfer your Vegan Nutella into an empty jar of marmalade or a bowl, cover and keep in the refrigerator.
