Winter Chocolate Spread

Healthy chocolate spread with cinnamon
In less than two weeks it’s already Christmas Eve. So it’s time to prepare my big Christmas kitchen session. I love giving friends and family baked, cooked and home made presents. As soon as the first door of my Advent calendar is open, I start planning the ingredients and time table so that all the presents are ready in time.

Last year, I made chocolate truffles, pomegranate jam and honey with nuts and on the blog I shared a quick Christmassy granola with you. So I also thought about some small gifts this year. Today I have my recipe for a healthy chocolate spread for you to surprise your loved ones with. You only need a food processor and some patience to prepare it. And you should have some space left in your fridge or basement, because the spread lasts longer stored in a cool place.

Winter Chocolate Spread

Healthy chocolate spread with cinnamonIngredients for 150ml

150g hazelnuts
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1-2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1-3 tablespoons coconut blossom sugar

Preparation

  1. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast them for 10-15 minutes at 120 degree Celsius until the whole kitchen smells amazing. Keep some hazelnuts for the decoration.
  2. Take the baking tray out of the oven and let the nuts cool.
  3. Use a kitchen towel to rub the peel off the nuts and put the nuts into a food processor.
  4. Blend the nuts until you have a runny nut butter. Just blend in intervalls of 1-2 minutes and take some small breaks between them.
  5. Pour the nut butter into a nice jar and decorate with the left hazelnuts.
  6. Once it’s open the nut butter can be kept for several weeks, if it’s stored in an airtight container in a cool place.
