Paleo Not-ella (Chocolate Hazelnut Butter)

So I have to apologize because I had every intention of posting this three days ago but life got in the way.  Nothing bad but just extremely busy trying to balance all my new life roads.  I just want to make sure I find balance and travel down the road where I can help the most people.  Whether it be free recipes, cooking videos, cooking classes, etc I just want to help spread the good food word.  I don’t know if cooking classes are going to end up being the best route since I haven’t shaved or cut my hair since I got out of the Marine Corps two weeks ago.  Curious to see, you can follow my #operationcaveman journey on Instagram HERE.  Make sure you follow me as I post teasers of recipes I am working on as well.

Paleo Nutella

So I have a confession to make, I have never eaten Nutella so as far as the accuracy of this recipe, I am trusting my taste testers (friends who just want free food).  It may be spot on or it may be miles away but I do know it tastes delicious either way.  So far, my favorite thing to do with it is to take my Paleo Banana Bread and slather it with warm not-ella or taking that same recipe and making not-ella stuffed banana bread muffins.  Make sure you leave me a comment letting me know your favorite way to use this recipe.  I look forward to your responses.

  1. Is there a substitute for the cocoa butter? We are snowed/iced in here in Northwest Arkansas, and I would love to make this but cocoa butter is not available by us.

  2. First off, I cant believe youve never tried nutella. Its amazing. That being said, I made this tonight and it was delicious. It had a certain tang to it that I wouldnt typically associate with nutella but it was till yummy. My texture was smooth just like nutella too which was awesome. Thanks for the recipe, george!

  3. What is shredded coconut butter? I have never heard of it. Where would one find it? I am just starting out in the Paleo world and this sounds great.
