Remember when you were little and a piece of toast with a certain big-name hazelnut spread was the absolute pinnacle? Well, here we are a few realizations about sugar, dairy, mass market food product additives, and maybe even a nut allergy, later – but that doesn’t mean we have to give up the pleasure entirely. We’re making breakfast sweet again with this Notella spread. It’s totally plant-based and nut-free so everyone can enjoy.
Vegan and Nut-Free Notella Spread
- Preheat oven to 350˚F.
- Spread sunflower seeds on baking sheet. Roast 7 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Cool 10 minutes, or until easy to handle.
- Meanwhile, melt together chocolate and coconut oil in double boiler or microwave on low power. Set aside.
- Blend warm sunflower seeds, sugar (if using), and salt in a high-speed blender until a thick, smooth paste forms. Add chocolate mixture and vanilla, and blend until smooth. Transfer to jars, and cool. Store at room temperature.
