Healthy Vegan Nutella

I’m pretty sure everyone has sat down and ate an entire jar of Nutella before. No? Just me? Awesome. Regardless of whether or not you have self-control, no one can deny how incredible the classic combination of chocolate and hazelnut tastes.

The problem with Nutella is that it’s packed FULL of sugar which will cause you to feel nasty after you eat it, and it’s just plain bad for you. Nutella also has dairy which can cause you to bloat and breakout. Not cute!

So I thought- what if I veganized this decadent topping AND made it healthy? Talk about a win-win. The best part is that it’s only 4 ingredients! Easy, healthy, and damn delicious! That’s what I’m talking about!

This spread is the perfect gooey blend of chocolate and hazelnut. It’s a great way to sneak in some protein and pack in extra antioxidants from the hazelnuts!

  • Blender. Vitamix reccomended!


  • 1 cup roasted, unsalted hazelnuts I got mine here.
  • 1/2 cup flaxseed I swear by this brand
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unflavored protein powder This is optional, but I highly recommend it! My favorite can be found right here.


  • Throw all of the ingredients into a blender and you're good to go! I highly recommend using a Vitamix. I literally worship mine, and I use it for so many recipes.
  • Blend until your Nutella is silky smooth (about a minute or two). If you're using a smaller blender, feel free to add a tiny bit of melted coconut oil or plant milk to thin the mixture out.


Storage: You can keep this in the fridge, just be aware that it will slightly harden. It’s still just as delicious and spreadable (kind of like when you refrigerate natural peanut butter). You can also store it in a cool, dry place, but it will not last as long.
Using a food processor: I haven’t tried this recipe in a food processor but I’m sure it will work. If anything, you may have to double the recipe so it mixes together more efficiently.

There You Have It, Folks!

This is truly the perfect for topping toast, apples, or just eating straight out of the jar! This is also a great recipe to double, so you have even more. I hope you enjoy your vegan Nutella! Let me know what you like to pair your spread with!
