Toddler Friendly Homemade “Nutella”

Toddler Friendly Homemade “Nutella”

Simple ingredients, no palm oil, no refined sugar and absolutely delicious! You need this chocolate spread in your life! 

It is smooth, drippy and SO creamy! I grew up loving Nutella, I mean who didn’t?! I wanted to create a healthier version for my son as traditional chocolate spreads are loaded with processed sugar and preservatives. This definitely hits the spot! 

It is so simple to make but does require some patience very and a high powered blender/food processor! 

I always use cacao powder for a chocolatey flavour as it isn’t roasted and therefore the enzymes in it remain active which means it is nutrient-rich and packed with antioxidants.

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 10 mins 

Serves: 12 servings 

Suitable From: 1 year +

 What do you need?

2 cups hazelnuts

4 tbsps cacao powder

2 tbsp melted coconut oil

3 tbsps coconut sugar

1 tbsp maple syrup 



1. Roast the hazelnuts for about 10 mins at 180c.

2. Once they are cool enough to touch, rub the skin off.

3. Add the hazelnuts to a food processor and blend until they become smooth, you’re looking for the consistency of nut butter. This could take around 5 minutes depending on the strength of your blender! You may need to stop a few times and scrape down the sides.

4. Add in the remaining ingredients and pulse until combined.

5. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
