How to Make Sinfully Delicious Vegan Nutella

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Nutella is a delicious hazelnut spread that vegetarians miss out on because it is made from non-vegetarian rennet made from the stomachs of calves. But you don’t have to miss out on the sinfully delicious taste of Nutella. You can make your own Vegan Nutella quickly and easily.

Making a vegan-friendly batch of Nutella at home is simple and you will find yourself addicted to its creamy deliciousness.



  • 2 cups of raw hazelnuts
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup of cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons agave
  • ¼ teaspoon plus 1/8 of salt
  • ½ cup almond or soy milk
  • 3 tablespoons of oil (optional)




  1. Preheat oven to 420ºF
  2. Begin by scattering your hazelnuts out on a baking sheet. Roast for 14 minutes. Make sure to let the hazelnuts cool completely. After the hazelnuts have cooled rub them with a dry paper towel to remove the skins.
  3. Put the hazelnuts in a food processor. Process the hazelnuts until you have a butter-like texture.
  4. Now add the rest of the ingredients into your food processor. Blend for 3 to 3 minutes. You will need to stop the food processor a couple of times to scrape down the sides. Make sure that everything is incorporated into the mixture.
  5. Use your delicious vegan version of Nutella right away or keep it stored in an airtight container.

One delicious way to use your vegan version of Nutella is to make a quick, easy and heavenly mug cake. With two simple ingredients and 90 seconds in the microwave, you can have a cup full of unforgettable chocolate goodness.


Simply follow this simple recipe for the mug cake:

  1. Put a quarter cup of your vegan Nutella into a mug
  2. Crack large egg or egg equivelant into the mug
  3. Stir until completely blended
  4. Put mug into the microwave for 90 seconds
  5. Let cool and top with confectionary sugar or dairy free cool whip. Enjoy!

      Hello, Karin...not all people who choose to eat a vegetarian lifestyle cut eggs, milk, cheeses and creams out of their diet. I have a very large circle of vegetarian friends and I'd say more than half still eat eggs and drink milk. It's a personal choice how you suit your diet to your bodies needs.
      1. Karin
        It is no longer a 'personal' choice when what you do harms others. Sorry, please look at what your appetite for eggs and dairy is doing to animals. Please look at some undercover Mercy for Animals investigations to see the cruelty and suffering you are supporting. Only being vegan will stop the suffering (that is if you are choosing your diet and lifestyle to stop the abuse and killing of animals) . It isn't all about you. All the nutrients you get from animal products can come from other, non cruel sources. Animals don't want to die and suffer a life of slavery for your food.

          Lots of us raise our own chickens free range. I also purchase raw milk from a local farmer who treats his animals with love and respect. I do agree that too many animals are suffering for our food chain that is not the case for every farmer many respect their animals and nature.
          1. Karin
            we have turned domesticated animals into commodities that only have worth if they have something to give us. Do the chickens and cows live out their full life as companion animals when their 'production' slows down or are they killed? We are taking thing from these animals which are not ours to take and which we don't need. As for milk...we are the only species that keeps drinking milk past the age of weaning AND we steal it and drink it from another mammal?! You have been brainwashed by the dairy industry.

              Wow...there is no rationally discussing this with you. I have chickens free ranging that are 7 and 8 years old and haven't laid an egg in years. Not all animals are abused and I certainly would not deal with anyone who did not properly care for their animals.
