How to make nutella brownies when I quit nutella and don’t have hazelnuts? Hazelnuts aren’t cheap and they’re not easy to find.
I did some research and found the best substitute.
I don’t have a recipe for me to incorporate the secret ingredient into a baked brownie and I certainly don’t want to buy the real nutella. So I decided to make a no bake one.
The easiest way out is actually buying chocolate hazelnut butter but it’s not an easy find for me.
Have you guessed the ingredient yet? I gave you so many hints already 😜
COCONUT NUTELLA BROWNIES
Raw, Vegan, nut free, dairy free, gluten free, grain free, naturally sweetened
10 tbsp sunflower seeds (approx 100g)
10 tbsp raisins or pitted dates (approx 2/3c)
8 tbsp desiccated coconut
2 tbsp raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
1 tbsp liquid sweetener (or omit)
4-6 tbsp coconut oil
Add all the dry ingredients into the food processor and pulse for 1-2 minutes.
Add the optional liquid sweetener and coconut oil.
Start with 4 tbsp first.
Pulse for 1 minute.
If everything does not stick together, add one more tbsp of coconut oil.
Pulse until the batter is sticky and well combined.
Place a baking sheet on top of your brownie pan or freezer safe container.
Transfer the batter to the pan.
I recommend using your hands to spread and press the batter down.
If there’s any oil on top, dap it off using a paper towel. You don’t want your brownie with white spots!
Freeze for at least 1h.
Slice and enjoy!
Btw, my favorite flower is sunflower 💛
