Sugar Free Nutella Just in Time for Valentine’s Day!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the first thing that comes to mind is chocolate and what’s even better than chocolate? Our Sugar Free Nutella – made from just 5 ingredients and tastes just as cheeky as the real thing!

We’ve said it once before and we’ll say it again – eating real food doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favourite foods. This recipe is even SIBO Phase 2 approved (a 2 tablespoon serve).

If you haven’t added these ingredients to your shopping list, we highly recommend you do and surprise someone special this Valentine’s Day.


  • 2 cups raw hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 170°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Scatter hazelnuts evenly onto tray and bake for 8 minutes, tossing half way to ensure they are evenly heated through.
  3. Once they begin to brown, remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  4. Remove the skin of the hazelnuts by using your hands and rubbing until it comes loose. Repeat until all skin has been removed (don’t stress if a small amount makes its way into the mix).
  5. Place the hazelnuts in a food processor and blend until an oily crumble forms. Add in remaining ingredients and blend to combine until a spread consistency forms.
  6. Transfer into an airtight jar and serve with strawberries or use as you would any other delicious spread.
  7. Store at room temperature and consume within 14 days.
