Keto Nutella Ingredients

You will be surprised to see that you need only 5 ingredients to make a delicious sugar-free Nutella.

keto nutella ingredients
  • 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.

Tips For Making The Best Homemade Sugar-Free Nutella

  • To obtain a super creamy homemade Nutella, make sure that your hazelnut butter is extremely creamy before adding the rest of the ingredients. 
  • If the hazelnut butter is not super smooth, add a little melted coconut oil.
  • Replace hazelnuts with peanuts or almonds if you’re looking for a different nut butter option.
  • For a more intense taste of chocolate, melt about 1/2 cup of chopped chocolate bars, then gradually include it into the final recipe, blending until everything is well blended.
  • If you want the spread to be thicker, add some heavy cream to the food processor during the last few minutes. 

Can I Use Hazelnut Butter?

Sure, you can save tons of time by using store-bought hazelnut butter. You’ll need about 2 cups of hazelnut butter. Skip to the part where you add the rest of the ingredients and mix well to make the best keto Nutella!
