Easy Homemade Nutella

By Nikki Webster (www.rebelrecipes.com)

Serves 4-6 | Prep 15 mins | Cook none |



  • 300g almonds
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp cocao powder
  • 4-6 tbsp maple syrup – depending on how sweet you like it.
  • Pinch Himalayan salt
  • 150ml water


  1. Add the almonds to your blender and blitz until you have a fine powder (reserve 1/4 cup of whole almonds to add in later if you like your nut butter chunky).
  2. Gently melt the coconut oil in a saucepan.
  3. Add the cocao powder, maple syrup, salt and coconut oil and blitz again so that you get a paste.
  4. Next add the water until you get the consistency you want.
  5. If you have reserved some almonds quickly blitz or crush them a little and stir into the mix.
  6. Spoon into a sterilised jar and seal – can be keep for up to 6 weeks but we doubt it will last that long!
