The Easy Way to Make Nutella
Making homemade ‘Nutella’ sounds complicated. It’s not! Don’t be intimidated. It’s actually quite simple:
- Just throw some roasted hazelnuts in your food processor and blend smooth.
- Then add in some melted dark chocolate and sweetener (I like this pure stevia powder — no weird aftertaste!)
- Salt, vanilla and coconut cream take it over the top. #obsessed.
ps. If you’re a fan of Nutella, be sure to check out my Keto Nutella Bark! Who *doesn’t* love hazelnut and chocolate together?? It’s so good.
It doesn’t take much to sweeten this pie. I used just a pinch of this highly concentrated stevia. (Plus the chocolate adds some sweetness, too)
You only need about the equivalent of 1 Tbs pure maple syrup or
- 2 Tbs sugar/ sugar equivalent such as powdered monkfruit
- 25 drops liquid monkfruit drops
- 35 drops liquid stevia drops
- replace the 1 Tbs water with 1 Tbs vanilla monkfruit syrup

Whip and Swirl
Homemade ‘nutella’ + whipped cream + more ‘nutella’ swirled on top = one LUSCIOUS dessert!!
For this pie, I whipped the cream separately first, then folded in the ‘nutella’. This makes it even lighter (see those delicious tiny air pockets?) Sort of like a rich chocolate mousse! Decadent!!
And then added MORE whipped cream on top. I absolutely love the added fluffy creamy texture with the rich pie AND the crunch hazelnuts on top. (I love me some texture!)

Whats the specific serving size and how many grams of net carbs per serving?
10 slices & 5 grams net carbs per slice, according to a quick calc on MyFitnessPal. 🙂

Please, provide the full nutrition per serving: calories, fat, net carbs and protein.
You can input all the information into MyFitnessPal and get the information. It is going to differ depending on brand of ingredients, etc… So better to do a little of the work yourself anyway. I do this regardless if someone provides nutritional information or not.
I just learned there are many kinds of Coconut milk / cream that have additives, and only a few with the only ingredients being coconut and water – just sharing with the world these days as I had no idea – Read the Label on your Coconut milk. I was surprise HOW many additives there are.
The canned coconut milk has very few if any. I don’t use the cartons, which are full of additives.
Use canned, and be sure to check the labels. There are many good brands available these days 🙂

Actually most canned coconut milk has sodium metabisulfite, to whiten it. Many people are allergic to that sulfite additive. The exceptions are health brands like Thai Kitchen and some others you will find at places like Whole Foods. As opposed to a typical Asian grocery..where it all has the sulfites.
I’ve actually never seen a coconut milk with sulfites added. But yes Thai Kitchen is a good brand. I have started buying cans of organic coconut cream from Thrive Market 🙂 < http://thrv.me/prettypies save 25% off your first order with my link> No additives- just coconut and water.
Can you provide the nutritional information? Being keto I find some of these desserts can pack more carbs than I would like! Thanks in advance!
Sure! From MyFitnessPal I got 274 cal, 26 fat, 10.3 carbs, 5.3 fiber, 5 net carb, 5 protein. You can cut smaller slices to reduce the carbs if you want 🙂 that’s what I do.
Hi, do you have a substitute for flax seed? Thanks!
Chia seeds should work, too. Maybe ground into a powder first.
If you are keto and not paleo could you sub cream for coconut milk?
Yes, that should work fine 🙂
I made this but with some swaps as I’m keto and not paleo. Butter fornthe crust and whipping cream instead of coconut milk/cream. I may have over whipped the cream before folding in the keto Nutella but holy cow it was amazing. It was like a keto Nutella French silk pie. I might add hazelnut infused whipped cream on top. This was delicious.
Yay!! So glad you liked it and you we’re able to adapt it! That hazelnut cream sounds amazing! Yum
I have Suntella from Lakanto. How much would I use in place of the Hazelnuts?
This looks amazing!!!
Sorry I missed your question until now! You could replace the hazelnuts with about 3/4 cup Suntella. taste and adjust for sweetness as needed. If you try it, let me know how it goes 🙂
hi im confused as to the ingredient list,
do you mean 1 x 13.6 oz coconut cream? sorry im in australia so im a bit confused but eager to try this recipe out
I use the cream that rises to the top of a can of coconut milk after it’s refrigerated.
If you only have cans of coconut cream, use about 1 cup of cream (8 oz). It’s ok if it’s a little more or less.
Hope that helps! Enjoy!
Is there a substitute for the pure stevia powder?
For low carb, you can use 1 Tbs powdered monk fruit + 1/2 Tbs extra coconut milk (always adjust to taste).
Monk fruit or stevia drops will work too. I would start with 5 or 10 & see if it’s sweet enough.
If you’re not low carb, the alternative is listed in the recipe (maple syrup).
Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions or need help 🙂
Hi! I made this pie last night exactly as your recipe. I really enjoyed the “nutella” flavor, but found I don’t enjoy the Stevia powder flavor (it was my first time using). I have Erythritol and Stevia drops and prefer a combo of both, how much would you suggest I try when I make pie again? I also have Swerve, how much if it would you recommend? And, if I’m using low-carb Maple syrup, how much of it? Thanks!
For a combo, I would try 1/2 Tbs powdered erythritol (Swerve) + 5 drops stevia + 1/2 Tbs coconut milk. Adjust to taste.
For sugar-free maple or other liquid sweeteners that measure like maple syrup, use 1 Tbs.
Hope that helps! 🙂
