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. I could not get the hazel nuts to be smooth and creamy. The spread is gritty but has a good flavor. Anyone know how to make it smooth and creamy.

  2. OMG, this is amazing. Dude, your stuff’s awesome! I just wished there was a way to make it last longer- then, I don’t even know how long this can last. I made this 3 days ago, turned out waaaaay tooo much but i modified the proportions…anyway, am wondering for how long I can safetly keep it in the firdge. I usually throw stuff away 1/2 days before best the by date anyway. Not sure about this item.

    I served this to my bros with some chips(mango chips,banana chips,lime candy), our weekly poker night was awesome! Finally something new and healthy…been trying to feed them healthy stuff ever since my boyfriend infected me with paleoisitis; ain’t really paleo, more medditerean/fish-oil-omega ratio calculation-carbs-keto sometimes, best thing i did for myself. Anyway, I used maple syrup but I replaced one part of it with a few drops of liquid stevia (one local brand without the gross stevia aftertaste) to make it suitable for a long-night eat-it-all poker match. Worked well! Nutella is gone for good, this stuff’s awesome. I recommend dutch cocoa powder, as in the type of coca, it doesn’t have to be from Denmark. The aroma’s nice, the taste’s perfect, it’s a must-use thingy. Keepthem coming! XD

  3. Today I tried this recipe for a family gathering. Nobody else there does paleo, so I was curious if they would like it. Where the adults thought the chocolate flavour was maybe too strong, all the children were loving it. My daughter and I love it too. I just made too much for what we can eat in a week, so next time I’ll try to split the ingredients in half. I think I am going to use some for a filling for muffins, that should be delicious too. And of course I should try your banana bread.
