Not Nutella: dairy gluten and sugar free chocolate spread

Not chocolate spreadt

Not chocolate spread

This is my first attempt at a gluten, dairy, sugar free chocolate spread substitute!

I realize that first line doesn’t make it sound appetizing at all, but I assure you this was wonderful, if very naughty!

Try it and let me know what you think!

Not Nutella


  • 1 tbs coconut milk (just the cream)
  • 1 tbs coconut oil (Use butter if not dairy free)
  • 1 tbs Hazelnut butter or roasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs carob powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sweetener to taste (I used xylitol)
  • Tiny pinch salt


  1. Melt the coconut oil or butter with the coconut milk
  2. Mix in the hazelnut butter, carob powder and vanilla until smooth (if too thick add a little of the coconut water or some unsweetened hazelnut milk)
  3. Stir in the salt and sweetener.
