Zen #2: Nut Butter

A perfect Nutella!



Chocolate Almond-Hazelnut Spread

  • flaxseeds (about 2T)
  • 4-5 splenda, or 4-5t of brown sugar/white sugar
  • 1/2 scoop Vanilla WHEY protein powder (make sure it doesn’t act as a THICKENER, i.e. make liquids into a shake)
  • a small spoonful or two cocoa powder
  • a handful (about 1/4c.) of wheat bran (you can toast it first if you want but I wasn’t about to toast anything after I got done with the hazelnuts)
  • 1 3/4c. Emerald Cocoa Roasted Almonds
  • a handful (about 15-30) of ROASTED hazelnuts

→It’s really simple. Put the ingredients into a food processor container or very high-quality blender (I have a vita-mix) in the order listed and whiz away! SO much better than the store bought Nutella which is 99% sugar.

Uh-oh…I think the melatonin I took is starting to kick in. I’ll have to do the stir-fry later.
