Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
This recipe is a modification on one we found in the Oh She Glows Cookbook and a mix of Epicure’s Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. The Epicure recipe uses almonds and hazelnuts and calls for icing sugar. The Oh She Glows Cookbook uses pure maple syrup on the nuts and roasts them before grinding into a nutbutter and includes the addition of healthful ingredients like hemp seeds, chia seeds and ground cinnamon. I personally enjoy the flavour of the roasted nuts and have used Cocoa Acai booster in place of plain cocoa powder. I find that using the maple syrup instead of the icing sugar is sweet enough but feel free to modify as needed for your personal taste! Enjoy!
