I cannot hold my excitement! This is arguably my best diet creation yet! 
     Who doesn't like Nutella? But here's the skinny on it: it's full of sugar and palm oil. (For reading on the adverse effects of palm oil, go here: www.livestrong.com/article/122886-adverse-effects-palm-oil)
     There are several from-scratch recipes for this, but none that are healthier than Nutella and diet-friendly, so I adapted!
     This really doesn't require much more of an introduction, so ENJOY!

--- Jenny


2 cups roasted hazelnuts 
1/2 cup dutch-processed cocoa
1 1/4 cup powdered xylitol (I powdered mine by processing it in a coffee grinder)
15 drops non-alcohol stevia
2 tablespoons unrefined sunflower seed oil
1 tablespooon coconut oil

In a food processor, liquefy hazelnuts. Yes, liquify them. To do that, process for 4-5 minutes. After they have passed the stage of "nut butter" and have liquified, add cocoa and zylitol a few tablespoons at a time while the processor is running. Add stevia and oils while the processor is running.
