cocoa hazelnut spread

Yield: 460g / 13 servings

Serving: 2 tb. / 35g

150g powdered erythritol OR xylitol

1/2 ts. salt

1/2 ts. vanilla

10g natural cocoa powder

(optional) 5g full-fat milk powder

80g neutral fat: cold-pressed palm oil / cold-pressed coconut oil / ghee (you could use butter, but it would make the nutella no longer shelf-stable)

200g smooth hazelnut butter (unsweetened, click here for a DIY recipe

(optional) 1/4 ts. xanthan gum (as a stabilizer)

In a microwave-safe bowl, gently warm the hazelnut butter until it is very warm but not too hot to touch (this makes it easier to mix), then pour it into a food processor or high-power blender.

Using the pulse setting, slowly incorporate the powdered dry ingredients into the warm hazelnut butter , mixing until fully combined.

Add the vanilla, mix, then add the oil/butter a little at a time until fully incorporated.

Finally, let the machine grind/process the "nutella" for 30 seconds or up to a minute to make it extra-smooth.

Pour your low-carb "nutella" into a glass container with a lid and store in a cool, dry place for up to 2 weeks. (It will last longer in the fridge, about 1 month)

Notes: The nutella will thicken up as it cools, so don't be worried if it seems very liquidy when you're mixing it

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
