Low-Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Spread aka Keto Nutella

Low-Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Spread aka Keto NutellaPin recipeFollow us 45.5k

Today I'd like to share a recipe from my Fat Bombs Book! This keto Nutella is the perfect high-fat treat for your ketogenic diet. It's dairy-free, sugar-free and won't spike your blood sugar.

I personally prefer the taste to be less "hazelnutty", and for that reason I additionally used almonds and macadamias. Besides, macadamia nuts are high in heart-healthy MUFA!

Enjoy this chocolate & hazelnut delight just like you would Nutella! Spread on a slice of low-carb bread, keto pancakes or waffles. And it's ideal for making fat bombs such as truffles, and even creamy low-carb smoothies.

Ingredients (makes about 2 cups/ 500 g/ 1.1 lb)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 °F/190 °C. Spread the hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, and almonds on a baking tray and transfer to the oven. Bake for about 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove the nuts from the oven and let them cool for 15 minutes.
    If using whole unpeeled hazelnuts: 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. Low-Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Spread aka Keto Nutella
  2. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate with coconut oil in a water bath. Place a bowl over a pot with boiling water and let the chocolate melt while stirring. Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Low-Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Spread aka Keto Nutella
  3. Place the nuts into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Low-Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Spread aka Keto Nutella
  4. Add the melted chocolate, coconut oil, powdered erythritol, cacao powder and vanilla powder. Pulse until smooth. If you’re using coconut milk, slowly drizzle it to the processor while blending (to prevent the chocolate from splitting, use warm coconut milk or cream).

Can I use liquid stevia in place of erythritol?It's the only sweetener I have.(Now foods liquid drops)


Absolutely! Any low-carb sweetener, to taste Smile Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-carb Ketogenic Diet


HI! I am allergic to macadamia nuts. Is there any other nut I could substitute? Perhaps just use hazelnuts? Thanks!


Yes, you can substitute macadamia nuts with hazelnuts (more "hazelnutty") or with almonds (subtle flavour).


Wow, the more I experiment with keto and low carb recipes, the more I am amazed at how easy and delicious healthy food can be.
What is your favorite bread to eat with this spread?


Hi Noline, a neutral tasting bread would be best with keto Nutella: Low-Carb & Paleo Bread: The Ultimate Guide


Can I use xylitol?


Yes, you can use xylitol. I would just use powdered instead of granulated (this can be done in a coffee grinder).


Are there any other sweeteners to substitute such as coconut sugar, Lakanto Sweetener?


Hi Candi, if you want to keep this recipe low in carbs, you can use any of these options: Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-carb Ketogenic Diet - Lakanto is a good option but I wouldn't recommend coconut sugar.


Can you use vanilla extract? (Oppose to vanilla powder)


Yes, you can use 1-2 tsp sugar-free vanilla extract instead (just added in the list of ingredients).


OMG - this looks amazing! I have tried other recipes and it either separated or it was grainy. But this looks amazing! Definitely am going to make this.
I pre ordered your book last week. Can't wait to see what you have created. Thanks for all your amazing recipes (and app).


Thank you so much! Just be careful in case you use cream/ coconut milk (listed optional). It may separate if the cream is too cold while blended with the chocolate.


Wow, thanks for coming up with this recipe.  I'll need to try it soon.  /Doug.


Thank you Doug, I hope you like it! Smile
