Creamy Chocolate Hazelnut Butter {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 14, 2021

Nutella who? This chocolate hazelnut spread brings me back to my Nutella and pretzel dipping days. Aka- when I ate the whole jar in one car ride. However, this chocolate hazelnut butter is loaded with clean, nutrient dense ingredients, such as hazelnuts, pitted dates, pure maple syrup, raw cacao powder, and more. It's clean, tasty, and very easy to make! What more could you ask for? This is the perfect spread for toast, crackers, pretzels, drizzles, and all you can imagine. It only requires 6 ingredients and a food processor to reach that smooth and creamy consistency. Per usual, all ingredients in this recipe are vegan and gluten free. Let's get to it!
