There’s nothing quite like the scent of a really tasty recipe filling the kitchen. Like a good crispy roast chicken or a slow cooker stew that’s been marinating for hours. Well, this 5-Ingredient Keto Nutella beats them all hands down!

The aroma of toasted hazelnuts is so warming and aromatic. I’m telling you guys, this sugar-free keto Nutella could sell houses! Forget freshly ground coffee or a home baked loaf, get this on the go, it’s that good!

…and if you’re not moving house, well it will wake sleepy heads out of their beds for breakfast for sure!

What I love about this 5-Ingredient Keto Nutella is that it’s sugar-free, packed with heart-healthy MUFA and super easy to make. You can totally customise how smooth you make it too. Simply blitz for a longer time if you want it super smooth or slightly less for more of a crunchy texture from the hazelnuts. I like a bit of texture so went for somewhere in the middle.

Smother on a slice of keto toast, low-carb graham crackers or if you’re a nut butter addict like me, spoon straight from the jar! You can even use this keto chocolate hazelnut spread to make all sorts of sweet fat bombs — all those options!

Is Dark Chocolate Healthy?

We used 90% dark chocolate but any dark chocolate with at least 85% cacao is a good low-carb option. Although there is a small amount of sugar, the carb count is low and it's one of the ingredients that can be used in moderation when you follow a healthy low-carb diet. You can also use sugar-free chocolate (dark, milk or even white if you can get it) sweetened with stevia or inulin.

If you want to avoid any added sugar, you can also use unsweetened 100% dark chocolate and then add more sweetener to taste.

Can I Use Whole Unpeeled Hazelnuts?

We recommend using peeled hazelnuts as the skins tend to add a bitter aftertaste. You can easily remove the peel. Simply bake the nuts as instructed. Once roasted and cooled, rub the hazelnuts together in your hands to remove the skins. This makes the butter smooth and avoids the bitter taste imparted by the skins.

Will this work with almonds or cashews? Those are the only nuts my daughter is not allergic to.

Absolutely! It won't taste the same way but it will make a delicious chocolate spread!

How many cups is the Hazelnut after being ground in the food processor. I purchased some toasted ground hazelnut, but don’t know how much to use with this recipe.

Hi Jo, if you go by the grams (about 300 g), you'll be ok. That should be about 3 cups of finely ground hazelnuts.
