“Nutella” in my Vitamix

A yummy treat.

A yummy treat.

For the past six months I’ve been cooking off of Nicole’s Whole Family Kitchen Meal Plans, which include 5 dinners, two snacks, and a grocery list. It cost me $80, but has been well worth it.  You can download a free sample week right here.  Did I mention everything is gluten free?

At this point, I sound like I’m being paid to write all of this, but I’m just an ordinary satisfied customer.

Think about this, I never have to plan for what to make for dinner, and I never have to labor over my grocery shopping list.

Kind of blows your mind, right?

The downside is, my whole family has to be courageous about trying new foods, for example, bison burgers.

This week’s brave new adventure included making “Nutella”.

I didn’t follow Nicole’s recipe exactly, because I used my Vitamix.  If you have a food processor, that might work too.

First I toasted 1.5 cups of hazelnuts in the over at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.  Then I put them in a clean kitchen towel and rubbed the skin off.

The other ingredients were:

  • 1/4 cup + 2 T cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 can coconut cream from Trader Joes

Just like Nicole promised, this spread was excellent on g-free zucchini bread.  Yum!
