Nutella | Vegan, Paleo, Keto

Nutella | Vegan, Paleo, Keto


hi everyone and welcome to my channel
after I have posted my first nutella video many of you asked how you can turn
the Nutella into keto friendly Nutella so I’m gonna show you how and I’ve also
changed a few things over the past few months which I’m gonna share with you as
well let’s start by roasting some raw hazelnuts this is important because
roasting enhances the hazelnut flavor and allows any excess water to evaporate
of course if you want to keep this Nutella raw just skip the roasting and
use raw hazelnuts the bonus of roasting hazelnuts is that you can then also
remove the somewhat better hazelnut skins I usually roast the hazelnuts at
350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes or until the skins have darkened
and are starting to peel away from the nut to remove the skins transfer the
roasted hazelnuts onto a clean kitchen towel gather the corners and closing the
hazelnuts and then wrap the hazelnuts for one to two minutes until the skins
have fallen off don’t worry about the skins that do not come off and just add
the hazelnuts into a heavy-duty food processor now there’s more than one way
to peel hazelnuts you might have heard about boiling hazelnuts in water and
baking soda but it’s not ideal for this recipe because the less moisture we have
the better I will explain why in a little bit process the hazelnuts for a
few minutes until they turn into a completely smooth hazelnut butter a good
way to tell you’re at the right consistency when processing the nuts is
when the nut butter starts having an almost oily sleek or shiny surface
depending on your food processor this should take anywhere from 5 to 15
minutes if you have a high speed blender like Vitamix you can use that as well I
just find that in the initial stages of making nut butter using a food processor
is a bit easier when your hazelnut butter is ready add some cashews you can
skip the cashews but since there is milk in the original nutella recipe you
want to bring some of the creaminess back cocoa powder and a powdered
sweetener I’m using powdered monk fruit sweetener which works so well in this
recipe you want to use powdered sweetener because sugar doesn’t dissolve
in fact nut butters included so you’ll know teller will only be as smooth or
grainy as the sweetener you use as far as liquid sweeteners go such as maple
syrup I don’t recommend using them in this recipe the reason is that nut
butters are fat based whereas liquid sweeteners are water based since oil and
water do not mix well the addition of a liquid sweetener causes the nut butter
to seize up the last ingredient is sunflower lecithin the reason I’m using
it in this recipe is number one to boost the nutritional value of this recipe
because sunflower lecithin has lots of health benefits but even more
importantly sunflower lecithin keeps all the ingredients from separating as the
nutella sets in the fridge and it also increases smoothness once all the
ingredients are in the food processor blend again if you don’t add any other
ingredients in this recipe the Nutella will be quiet thin if you want the
texture to be thicker like store-bought Nutella you will need to add a few
tablespoons of coconut oil and also melted dark chocolate I add both these
ingredients when I make this for my husband because they do thicken the
nutella if you’re wondering about the exact amounts of ingredients i’m using i
will have a link to the recipe in the description box below this video and
that’s it homemade nutella that is not only begin and keto friendly but also
incredibly delicious you this little recipe is one of those
recipes where Tanner and I don’t agree on the final result so I prefer to tell
out with a little bit less sweetener less cocoa powder because I can detect
the hazelnut butter more and I love hazelnut butter
Tanner prefers and sell out with more sweetener and more cocoa powder more
coconut oil because it resembles the original nutella recipe a little more
you put this on some of the Nana’s work great for pancakes this is really thin
pancakes and typically I would buy this for my sister-in-law except her sister
and then eat the whole jar so I would not be able to distinguish putting this
and the other new tell mmm maybe that’s not true I think that this is thicker
than the original a Nutella the original hotel kind of like smooths out
thins out as it goes across your palate this is thick all the way through and
it’s delicious so me all right so I hope you enjoy this
