We all know how I feel about the real Nutella, see here, here, here, here, here. But there is something to be said for a good alternative, using healthy oils, natural sweeteners, and a super simple recipe. My sister (remember this recipe she did for us?) has been working to make this as creamy and Nutella-like as possible. And she finally nailed it. So thanks Jocelyn, keep on making our lives healthier.

Though this really doesn’t contain any hazelnuts, the creaminess and chocolatiness of this spread really is Nutella like. You really should try it, it’s amazing.

(Also, sorry for the lack of posts recently, school has been a bear)

1 cup unrefined coconut oil

1/2 cup unsweetened coco powder

1/4 cup maple syrup

a pinch of both salt and vanilla

Simmer everything together in a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Pour into a  8×8 pan and let set until it’s set up.
