I’m sure the strapline ‘Two hazelnuts, skimmed milk and a dash of cocoa in every serving’ is supposed to make you see Nutella as nutritious. But for the mum of a child with tree nut and dairy allergies it just sounds like a nightmare combination! However, it tastes so good I wanted to recreate a nut free Nutella for J and make a delicious dairy free and nut free chocolate spread.
I love a challenge and recreating popular treats so they are safe and delicious is one of my favourite things to do! I never want J to miss out on something that his friends can have but sometimes we just need to do things differently. And different can be just as good…
Welcome nut free nutella!
And I am soooo pleased with the result! It tastes nutty, chocolatey, moreish and is great on toast or with fresh fruit. In fact, it’s so good it often never makes it to toast but gets eaten straight out the bowl! It will last for up to five days in the fridge though if you have more willpower than me!
This nut free, dairy free chocolate spread only contains 4 ingredients and can be made in minutes. So it’s great to whip up as a last minute treat and is also nice and healthy for an after school snack or sandwich filler.
