Keywordhazelnut, nut spread, nutella, shelled hemp seeds
Servings250 g


  • 2 Cups 240 g Hazelnuts
  • 1/2 Cup Shelled Hemp Seeds
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/3 Cup real Maple Syrup or Raw Honey, Barley, Rice or Date Syrup
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Plant-based Milk of choice or 2 Tablespoons Oil


  • If the hazelnuts are not already roasted, preheat the oven to 200˚C and bake for 6-8 minutes or just until they begin to brown.
  • Rub them together in a paper towel to take the skins off.
  • It’s okay if a few stubborn skins won’t come off.
  • In a highspeed food processor, blend the nuts and hemp seeds until they’ve turned into a butter.
  • Now, add all other ingredients and blend until the butter is completely smooth - like Nutella!
  • Decant into a clean glass jar with a lid.
  • Keep in the fridge.
