So you think that nut chocolate spreads make a healthy choice for the kids’ lunch box? Now there really is a healthy, great tasting spread! This recipe is 100% sugarfree and the only oil is the natural, good oil from the nuts.


  • 100g hazelnuts, raw or dry roasted no added salt or sugar

  • 100g of chickpeas (keep the liquid)

  • 80-100g Natvia

  • 15g skim milk powder

  • 20g pure cocoa

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

  • 100ml liquid from canned chickpeas


  • 1.

    Process hazelnuts until like almond meal or med-fine grind coffee.

  • 2.

    Transfer to a bowl and combine with all remaining ingredients except the liquid.

  • 3.

    Put back in food processor and process whilst gradually adding liquid until desired consistency is reached.

  • 4.

    Keeps in the fridge for at least 2 weeks.


Optional ingredient: 1 teaspoon lecithin powder: to improve blending making it smoother/creamier You can use milk instead of the chickpeas liquid If you make it too runny, add a bit more cocoa and skim milk powder, or just cocoa for a richer, more chocolatey taste. If mix is too dry, add more liquid from tin or extra milk/non-dairy alternative.
