  • Add all ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and stir with a whisk until the mixture is completely smooth and creamy.
  • Taste it and add more maple syrup if you want it sweeter! Add more nut butter and cocoa powder for a thicker cream or more water for a thinner chocolate spread. Enjoy!


  • For a similar taste to "Nutella", I would recommend using hazelnut butter, however, if you can't find it, then simply use creamy peanut butter or your favorite nut butter. Use sunflower seed butter for a nut-free version.
  • Use your favorite liquid sweetener instead of maple syrup. Some examples are rice malt syrup, agave syrup, date syrup, etc. Or use powdered Erythritol for a sugar-free, low-carb Nutella. You might need to add a little more water to thin out the spread.
  • You can melt dairy-free chocolate chips and add a few tablespoons for an ultra-rich and chocolatey spread!
  • Add a tiny dash of instant coffee (or room temperature espresso liquid in place of the water) to enhance the chocolate flavor.

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
