Homemade Nutella (Gluten and Dairy Free!)
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1.5 cups
  • 250g hazelnuts
  • 1 cup pure icing sugar (Pure icing sugar is gluten free; soft icing sugar & icing sugar mixture contain cornflour)
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp vege oil (or similar flavourless oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 180ÂșC. Arrange hazelnuts on an oven tray and roast for 10 mins.
  2. Transfer roasted nuts to a clean tea towel and gently rub off the bitter hazelnut skins.
  3. Transfer the hazelnuts to the food processor and blitz for a few minutes until their oil is released and it forms a paste.
  4. Add in the sugar, cocoa, oil, vanilla and salt and blitz again for 2 minutes until it forms a spreadable consistency.
  5. Taste the Nutella at this stage, if you want it sweeter then add more icing sugar, if you want it more chocolately and rich, add more cocoa.
  6. Transfer the Nutella to a clean, airtight jar. I store mine in the fridge and it can last up to a month (but I doubt it will!)
