Chances are you have a Nutella jar in your kitchen cabinet. If you are like me, you eat it with a spoon almost every day. There is nothing like the rich, gooey, sweet and salty combination of chocolate and hazelnuts. I always thought it would be nice if I could make a homemade version that tastes just like the real thing – but without the refined sugar. I’m so happy to say that I can officially say that I have made a fat-free, sugar-free, keto-friendly copycat of Nutella.
Did you know that Nutella is not just for toast? It is actually a pretty amazing spread that is made from hazelnuts, cocoa and a host of other delicious ingredients. If you are following the ketogenic diet, then this is a must-have in your pantry.
Before the diet, were you a Nutella fan?
If that’s the case, I’ll show you how to create a tasty keto version of Nutella, the popular nut spread! All you’ll need are some raw hazelnuts and a food processor or blender to get started. It’s really very simple to prepare with only a few keto ingredients, and you’ll adore the creamy, rich chocolate dip that can be eaten guilt-free as a special treat.
How can you eat homemade Nutella on a keto diet?
To make the finest Nutella keto chocolate sauce, follow these steps:
- For up to two weeks, keep the hazelnut spread in a jar with a cover on the counter. It may be kept in the fridge, although the coconut oil thickens the texture somewhat. We term the texture we saw a smudge because it resembles a thick smudge rather than a big smear.
- Raw hazelnuts should be roasted in the oven for a few minutes. The skins peel off easily once they’ve been thoroughly roasted. You may just wrap them in a kitchen towel and toss them about. The rubbing action between the towels removes the majority of the skin off the towel. Because this is a tough task, remove as much skin as possible.
- I’m looking for whole hazelnuts, but I can’t seem to locate them. I’ve discovered that some grocery shops only offer hazelnuts as a seasonal item around the holidays, but I’ve had luck finding them in the bulk area of my local Sprouts and at the farmers market. Hazelnuts are also available on Amazon.

TIME TO PREPARE: 15 MINUTES
15 MINUTES FOR COOKING
30 MINUTES TOTAL TIME
To create this delicious keto chocolate dessert, you’ll need a food processor or blender, as well as roasted almonds.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread the hazelnuts out on a baking sheet and roast them for approximately 13-15 minutes. When roasting the nuts, be cautious not to burn them.
To remove as much of the shell as possible, spread the roasted hazelnuts on a towel and massage them with a rag.
In a food processor or blender, combine the toasted hazelnuts. Close the cover and knead the dough for a few minutes until it is smooth.
Combine the keto sugar, coconut oil, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Take proper care of it.
Melt the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe dish for 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth and melted. In a food processor or blender, pulse the melted chocolate until smooth.
Fill a glass halfway with the ingredients and serve. As the sandwich filling cools, it will stiffen somewhat. In a jar with a cover, store in the refrigerator. This recipe yields about 1 1/4 cup of spread.

I like how smooth and creamy it is. It has a deep taste, and a little quantity can satisfy any sweet appetite. Overall, this sugar-free Nutella dressing is a big success! Roasting and crushing the hazelnuts is, in my opinion, worthwhile.
These are my favorite basic and easy ideas, and I hope you love them as much as I do!
After tasting this dish, my colleague Jennifer had the following to say:
This dish has a deep hazelnut taste, and the addition of chocolate makes it even better. When you combine it with berries, you get a fantastic dessert! This dip was a hit with my family. When you combine it with the ice cream, you get the ideal dish, which is comparable to Magic Shell but is keto. Because it’s smooth, creamy, and delicious, it’s ideal for cheesecake or any meal that calls for ganache.
Then create chocolate cheesecake keto fat bombs!
