What is Needed to Make Keto Nutella?
If you are ready to jump right in and become a pro at making this chocolatey delicious spread, read on for the necessary supplies, tips, tricks, ingredients, and instructions!
Tools and Supplies Needed to Make Keto Chocolate Spread:
How to Make Keto Nutella
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread the hazelnuts onto the baking sheet, and roast in the oven for 12 minutes.
Place the roasted nuts into a container with a lid, and shake to remove almost all of the skin. Add the hazelnuts and olive oil to a food processor, and pulse until smooth, and the oils have begun to be released from the nuts.
In a bowl that is microwave safe, melt the chocolate chips until smooth. Add the cocoa powder, melted chocolate chips, Swerve, vanilla, and salt to the food processor, and blend until smooth and creamy. If the spread is too thick, add additional olive oil as needed until you reach your desired consistency.
Use immediately, or store in an airtight container in the fridge.

If you are ready to enjoy this keto chocolate spread, you only need to set aside less than 30 minutes and you’ll be enjoying it! Seriously! Just 10 minutes of prep time and just 12 minutes of cooking time is all you need to make this low carb keto spread!
How Many Carbs Are in Nutella Spread?
This keto version of the delicious chocolatey spread has just 2 net carbs, whereas if you go and buy a jar of Nutella, you are looking at more like 12 net carbs per serving.
This recipe makes 12 servings.
Can You Have Hazelnuts on Keto?
One ounce of Hazelnuts contains roughly 6.5 net carbs, which makes them easy to fit into your keto diet as a snack.
What are the Best Things About This Keto Nutella?
Well outside of the delicious chocolatey goodness, here are some of the best things about this keto Nutella:
- It’s sweet, but not too sweet. The sweetness in this spread is toned down from the original Nutella, which is, in my opinion, much better.
- It’s healthier! Original Nutella has just 7 ingredients, but of those ingredients, there is more sugar than any of the others. That is obviously not the case with this recipe, making it healthier.
- It tastes so close to store bought, you might just forget that you are eating keto!

How to Store Keto Nutella
Once finished, store your keto Nutella in a sealable glass jar. You can store this keto chocolate spread in the fridge for up to one month. While you can keep it in the cupboard for a shorter period of time (about 7-10 days), I have found that keeping it in the fridge helps with the consistency of the spread.
