Rainforest Action Network's Palm Oil Fact Sheet.
So I put out a request on my Healthy Life, Happy Life community page for alternatives to Nutella. I received some great responses, one being a recipe for homemade hazelnut spread! Woot!
The boys and I made it today and it is so good!
Here's the recipe I received. My adjustments are in red.
Homemade Hazelnut Spread
1 cup blanched hazelnuts
1/2 cup canned, full-fat coconut milk (I used boxed coconut milk)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. vanilla
2 T. coconut oil or ghee (I used coconut oil)
pinch of Celtic sea salt (I used grey salt)
Toast the hazelnuts at 350 degrees for 10 minutes; remove the skins if they weren't already removed by using a damp cloth to rub them. (I highly suggest you buy hazelnuts without the skins if you can. It was a royal pain to remove them myself!)
Put nuts in food processor and pulse until creamy- scrape bowl a couple of times
Add coconut milk, nectar or syrup, cocoa, vanilla, coconut oil and salt and continue pulsing and scraping sides until creamy.
Store in the fridge! Yum!
The flavor of this is on point...so tasty! Ya'll definitely have to try it...if you do, please let me know how you like it!
