A Keto-friendly homemade hazelnut spread is a delightful way to enjoy a rich and creamy spread akin to Nutella while staying in line with the principles of a ketogenic diet. This recipe offers a low-carb, sugar-free alternative to satisfy chocolate cravings.


  • 1 cup raw hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons powdered erythritol or stevia (Keto-friendly sweetener)
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sugar-free chocolate chips (optional for extra richness)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast for 10-12 minutes until aromatic and lightly browned.
  2. Remove the hazelnuts from the oven and let them cool slightly. Rub them between a clean kitchen towel to remove most of the skins.
  3. Transfer the roasted hazelnuts to a food processor or high-speed blender. Blend until they turn into a smooth hazelnut butter, scraping down the sides occasionally.
  4. Add cocoa powder, Keto sweetener, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to the hazelnut butter. Blend until well combined and smooth.
  5. Optionally, fold in a handful of sugar-free chocolate chips for extra richness and texture.
