Nutella was a big treat in our household when I was growing up. My mom didn’t buy it often, but when she did, my sister and I couldn’t get enough of it. We spread it on toast for breakfast, added it to our peanut butter sandwiches for a decadent lunch, and sometimes we drizzled it over a banana for a late-evening snack. It was pure heaven.

I haven’t thought about Nutella in years, but I’ve noticed it gaining popularity lately. I’ve seen lots of Nutella recipes popping up in my Pinterest feed, and when I saw a display of Nutella in our local grocery store a couple of weeks ago, I decided to grab a (family-sized) jar and give some of the recipes a try. And I’m so glad I did! I had forgotten how decadent the combination of hazelnuts and cocoa is, and I’ve found tons of delicious and creative ways to enjoy Nutella for breakfast and dessert.

Whether you’re trying to figure out how to make homemade Nutella, or you just want a collection of yummy Nutella recipes to try with store-bought hazelnut spread, we’ve got everything you need right here!

How to Make Homemade Nutella: 4 Easy Recipes

When I first started researching for this post, I naively assumed that homemade Nutella involved nothing more than throwing a bunch of hazelnuts and cocoa into a food processor. Boy was I wrong! There are lots of different homemade Nutella recipes out there, and they’ve all been carefully tested to ensure the perfect combination of ingredients and blending techniques.

If you want to know how to make homemade Nutella, here are my top 4 favorite DIY recipes:

Easy Vegan Nutella | Minimalist Baker
This recipe is vegan and gluten-free, and only requires 4 ingredients. It’s super simple to make, and tastes delicious. It’s not as sweet as other homemade Nutella recipes, but if you’re health-conscious and want a hazelnut spread you can enjoy with minimal guilt, this is the one for you!

Healthy Nutella | Chocolate Covered Katie  
If you’re trying to limit your sugar and calorie intake but still enjoy sweet things, this healthy homemade Nutella recipe is fantastic. She uses maple syrup as a sugar substitute, with a pinch of stevia for added guilt-free sweetness.

Homemade Nutella | Crunchy Creamy Sweet
If you’re looking for a homemade Nutella recipe and don’t mind the added sugar, I really like this one. It’s still relatively easy to make (about 25 minutes total prep and cooking time), and the addition of powdered sugar makes this spread absolutely delectable!

Homemade Nutella | The Splendid Table
This recipe uses confectioners sugar and tastes a lot like store-bought Nutella. I highly recommend it!
