Making actual homemade vegan nutella takes a long time and while it’s amazing and worth it, I just can’t be bothered with waiting an hour to devour something chocolatel-y.
Especially while on my period or during a crisis of I-NEED-CHOCOLATE-NOW. I know you know what I mean. Sometimes a dry dark chocolate bar just doesn’t cut it. And you NEED a overflowing spoonful of dreamy 1-Minute Nutella. And that is okay.
I had this exact crisis happen yesterday. Nothing sounded good for breakfast except chocolate. I was hungover after my bachelorette weekend and this recipe was born out of pure necessity, really. I allowed myself to have vegan chocolate nutella for breakfast with toast and pretzels. Me, the not-so-perfect health and wellness blogger. And I don’t regret it for one second. Life happens, you know? Chocolate equals happiness.
I just can’t recover from drinking like I used to.
So this magical 1-Minute Vegan Nutella was born. I didn’t roast hazelnuts or blend them in the food processor for approximately 25 minutes until they turn into hazelnut butter and my food processor starts to get tired or make weird noises. I didn’t even have to clean a food processor after. I couldn’t be bothered, remember?
All I did was grab a cereal bowl, pour in some runny nut butter, raw cacao powder, stevia drops and sea salt, and stirred until creamy and smooth. That is literally it. I know it’s groundbreaking content but someone has to do it.
But for reals, I thought you might appreciate this 60-second recipe because I sure do. No it doesn’t have hazelnuts so maybe it isn’t “real” nutella but it tastes pretty damn close. Pin it to remember for later when you are in a chocolate crisis and need to fulfill that craving IMMEDIATELY. This recipe is for those exact moments.
You can sub any nut butter or seed butter you have on hand. I used cashew butter. Peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seed butter, anything would work. You can also adjust the sweetness level. While I used stevia, you could use pure maple syrup or any liquid sweetener. I just prefer stevia to keep it sugar-free so it won’t spike my blood sugar.Print
1 cup runny nut/seed butter (I used cashew butter but any kind will work)
4 tablespoons cacao powder
vanilla stevia drops, to taste
pinch of sea salt
In a small bowl, pour in the runny nut butter, cacao powder, stevia drops and sea salt. Stir until creamy and smooth. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
