Forget store-bought Nutella! Go for this Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Almond Spread "Double Nut-ella" (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, and More Free).

Double Nutella (Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Almond Spread)

It's so easy to make your own version of Nutella---and you get to control the ingredients! I call mine Double Nut-ella because it uses both hazelnut and almond ingredients.



  1. Add hazelnut flour, cocoa powder, and honey to food processor. Process on high for about a minute.
  2. Remove top of food processor and scrape sides.
  3. Add oil, almond butter, and milk (if desired). Process for about 4 more minutes on high. Stop every minute or so to scrape sides to ensure all ingredients are fully incorporated.


I have an ancient food processor and I’m not sure that that my instructions on speeds and times will work the same for your own food processor, but I don’t think you can mess this recipe up too much. Because one starts with hazelnut flour versus hazelnuts, I suspect that even a mini-food processor or perhaps even a blender will work, but I haven’t tried those methods yet.

I did not add any dairy-free milk when I made this recipe, but after sitting in the refrigerator overnight, some additional liquid was needed. I added some full-fat coconut milk, just stirring it in by hand. But you’re free to add dairy-free milk when you make this recipe, omit it, or add it later, if needed.

Similarly, you might decide you need less or different oil. The oil does settle a bit in the spread after time and the mixture needs to be stirred, but I didn’t find that to be a problem for me. I’d like to try using extra virgin olive oil next time as I usually love that in combination with chocolate.
