Vegan Nutella Recipe with Only Four Ingredients

vegan nutella

Oh my goodness, you guys! I made vegan Nutella! Not only that, it was delicious, easy, and used only four ingredients!

I followed this Nutella recipe from Su Good Sweets, though I like my Nutella a bit less sweet, so I halved the sugar. I also only had 1 cup of hazelnuts, so I halved the recipe. Lots of halving going on!

Here’s how it went down.

  • 1 cup toasted hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Puree the hazelnuts in your blender for a lot longer than you think you need to. Just keep blending, stopping once in a while to scrape down the sides of your blender, until it reaches the consistency of natural peanut butter. See the note below!
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. You might need to stop and scrape a few times during this part, as well.
  3. EAT! You can store what you don’t eat right this second in a glass container with a lid. A mason jar or old jam jar works perfectly.

NOTE: Su was so right about blending up the hazelnuts. It was sort of amazing to watch! I ground them up into a meal and thought there was no way they could get more ground than they were. Thanks to Su’s encouragement, though I kept processing and ended up with smooth, creamy hazelnut butter.

I was tempted to stop there, because hazelnut butter seems pretty darn decadent on its own, but I also had a craving for nutella on toast, so I went on.

All of that whizzing in the food processor leaves things on the warm side, and the spread firms up once it cools. I couldn’t resist spreading some right onto a piece of toasted oatmeal bread for dessert with a glass of almond milk! YUM!

I haven’t had Nutella since quitting dairy, so I’m pretty excited to have a jar full of the stuff in the fridge! I’m going to eat some with a banana for breakfast right now!

  2. Thank you so much. My husband buys Nutella and my daughter is allergic to dairy so she gets so bummed. I can not wait to make this for her. She is going to be over the moon. <3
