“The homemade Nutella” … it has been on my todo list for a while and suddenly there it was!
I’m about to go to the office and have some left over almond butter. Not much, really. I add a little cocoa to it and bring it with me. Voila, the homemade Nutella for lunch. Tasty, but not perfect. It needed a little tweaking with some extra ingredients to end up with a really good and soft spreadable Nutella. One that your can’t leave alone! And all this with the basic & simple almond butter …

Nuts about almonds

Not long ago, I discovered the almond butter. It’s not only a good substitute for peanut butter, it is also a perfect filling for these mouthwatering almond butter cups and you could use it for these no bake peanut butter (or the ‘almond butter’ -) bars. Almonds are great. If I don’t make butter from it, I add them to my oatmeal breakfast. And as nut as I am about almonds, chocolate always wins (duh ..). No surprise foods like these with the nuts & cocoa combo + >> everything from scratch << make me enormously happy.

I just can’t help it !!!

It makes me so happy that control is hard to find. A choco-nut-mix like this won’t survive long when I’m around. Nothing new though. When I lived in Bangkok in my early twenties the Nutella jar disappeared regularly. No it didn’t melt… I lived there with my then and current boyfriend and our good friend Kuan. Secretly and ‘occasionally’ I at ‘one’ scoop Nutella. No mystery for me what happened with the Nutella. The guys would only raise their eyebrows. Last week I made these homemade Nutella for the first time… Before I had a chance to take pictures of my new favorite, I finished the jar … I just can’t help it!

You have been warned… it will disappear like snow in the sun.

  1. Hmm lekker! Ik maak weleens Nutella (Notella noem ik het) van avocado’s en cacao, maar dit vind ik ook het proberen waard. Ik limiteer vanwege darmproblemen echter lactose. Ik denk dat ik de melk wel kan vervangen door een plantaardige melk, toch?

    Mooie site heb je trouwens, mijn complimenten!

      Hi Angela!
      Dank je wel 🙂
      Ja, met avocado is ook erg lekker. Banaan daarbij ook trouwens.
      Ik gebruik meestal homemade amandelmelk, maar dat heb ik hierbij net niet gedaan… Ga ik snel doen.
      Zou geen probleem moeten zijn, hoewel de structuur er misschien iets door verandert. Probeer een beetje en voeg anders wat kokosolie toe! Ik laat je weten hoe het bij mij slaagt.
