  • 250 g hazelnuts
  • 1 cup pure icing sugar Pure icing sugar is gluten free; soft icing sugar & icing sugar mixture contain cornflour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp vege oil or similar flavourless oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC. Arrange hazelnuts on an oven tray and roast for 10 mins.
  • Transfer roasted nuts to a clean tea towel and gently rub off the bitter hazelnut skins.
  • Transfer the hazelnuts to the food processor and blitz for a few minutes until their oil is released and it forms a paste.
  • Add in the sugar, cocoa, oil, vanilla and salt and blitz again for 2 minutes until it forms a spreadable consistency.
  • 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.
  • 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!)
