Recipe - Alix's Vegan Chocolate & Hazelnuts Spread

Here's today the Protein & Vegan Chocolate Hazelnuts Spread of our Näak ambassador : Alix Noblat! 
We tasted it during a weekend with our ambassadors. It was soooo good! We really wanted to share it with you! 
Perfect after your morning run, your teatime snack or for a quick bite. Alix offers you a simple, smooth and greedy recipe to fill up your energy! You will need a blender and an oven (a frying pan will also do the job)

The list of ingredients for 1 jar of spread :

  • 30g of Ultra Recovery Vanilla Powder
  • 220 gr of maple syrup
  • 70 gr of raw hazelnuts
  • 65 g unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 360g of drained and rinsed chickpeas
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (coconut or canola)
  • A pinch of sea salt

Let's get cooking!

Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F

Step 2:

Roast the hazelnuts for 12/15 minutes. Be sure to stir them halfway through the cooking time. Keep an eye on them so that they don't get too hot, which could give them a bitter taste.

Step 3:

Let the hazelnuts cool and remove their skins with a kitchen towel. Grind them in a blender until you get a coarse powder.

Step 4:

Blend the maple syrup and chickpeas with the hazelnuts. Bring the mixture stuck to the edge back to the center.

Step 5:

Mix in the cocoa, the Ultra Recovery Vanilla Powder and the pinch of salt  to the mixture.

Step 6:

Stir in coconut milk with oil.

Step 7:

Blend and mix until smooth!

To be enjoyed on a toasted slice of whole wheat bread or fresh homemade pancakes, Alix's spread will delight young and old sports lovers!
