Chocolate Protein Hazelnut (Nutella) Spread

protein nutella crepes

A few days ago, I [somewhat] impulsively bought some hazelnuts because I love the flavor and wanted to experiment with them. I looked around online for recipes but ended up wanting to try homemade Nutella, but with a catch– I’d use protein powder instead of chocolate chips.

It was very quick and easy to make (though skinning the hazelnuts was a slight hassle) and the flavor turned out great! The consistency is obviously a little thicker and not as smooth as Nutella due to the protein powder. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup hazelnuts
  2. 1 scoop (30 g) chocolate protein powder
  3. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  4. 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  5. 1/4 cup almond milk
Instructions
  1. (If your hazelnuts are already toasted and skinned, skip this step!) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spread hazelnuts in one layer on a cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes, then allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Put the nuts in a kitchen towel and rub them to get all the skin off. (You won't be able to get ALL the skin off, but do your best because the skins cause a slightly bitter taste)
  2. Once the hazelnuts are skinned, throw them in the food processor and pulse until it forms into hazelnut butter.
  3. Add vanilla and coconut oil and pulse.
  4. Finally, add in protein powder and milk and pulse until you reach a smooth consistency.
