A healthy and delicious alternative to Nutella

In our constant quest for healthier food choices without sacrificing the pleasure of the taste buds, it is time to revisit a classic of gourmet mornings and comforting snacks: chocolate spread. Too often, store-bought options, including the famous Nutella, are loaded with sugar and less desirable ingredients like palm oil. Fortunately, there is a homemade alternative that is delicious, healthy, and surprisingly easy to make.

Why choose a homemade version?

Ingredient control

Making your own spread means regaining power over your consumption. By choosing quality ingredients, such as pure nut butter and natural maple syrup, we avoid unnecessary additives and preservatives. In addition, this recipe allows you to adjust the sugar to your taste, thanks to the sweet and natural contribution of maple syrup, a culinary treasure that enriches each bite with a subtle woody note.

With purchased ingredients, like nut butter and our maple syrup , it only takes a few minutes to obtain a creamy, rich-tasting dough. It's a quick and easy way to give your family a healthier option for their morning toast or snacks.

Q&A for Cocoa, Nut Butter and Maple Syrup Spread

Q: Can this spread be stored at room temperature?
A: It is best to store this spread in the refrigerator, especially if you live in a warm environment. In the fridge, it keeps well for 1 to 2 weeks. Take it out a few minutes before serving so that it regains a consistency that is easier to spread.

Q: Can you use peanut butter instead of almonds or hazelnuts?
A: Absolutely. Peanut butter can be a delicious alternative and will add a strong peanut flavor to your spread. Be sure to choose a peanut butter that is natural and has no added sugar to maintain the balance of flavors.

Q: Is this recipe suitable for vegan diets?
A: Yes, this recipe is completely vegan, as long as you use ingredients that contain no animal products. Make sure the nut butter and cocoa powder you choose meet this criteria.

Q: How can I adjust the consistency of the spread?
A: If your spread is too thick, you can add a little coconut oil or water, very gradually, mixing well after each addition until you reach the desired consistency. If it is too runny, add a little more nut butter or cocoa powder.
