Keto Nutella Ingredients
You will be surprised to see that you need only 5 ingredients to make a delicious sugar-free Nutella.
- Hazelnuts – Choose raw hazelnuts and roast them yourself to release their natural oils. However, if you’re short on time, you can use dry roasted hazelnuts.
- Coconut Oil – you can also use avocado or macadamia oil. This ingredient makes the consistency a little smoother and creamier.
- Cocoa Powder – Quality cocoa makes the difference in the dessert’s color and flavor. Therefore, the higher the fat content of cocoa powder, the more intense the color will be. Cacao powder can also be used.
- Sweetener – powdered sweetener is a must for this recipe, so it dissolves faster when blended. You can adjust the amount depending on how sweet you would like your keto Nutella!
- Vanilla Extract – use the best quality vanilla extract that you can find. Makes the spread taste incredibly rich.
- Salt – to enhance and balance all the flavors in this homemade Nutella.
