Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

  • 2 oz roasted hazelnuts
  • 1 oz dark chocolate, melted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • water as needed (about 1 tbsp)


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp homemade chocolate hazelnut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt


  • dollop of chocolate hazelnut butter
  • handful of blueberries
  • pinch of coconut flakes
  • chopped roasted hazelnuts
  • drizzle of maple syrup


Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

  1. In a food processor, pulse the hazelnuts until smooth. Add in the chocolate, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. If the butter is not coming together, add small amounts of water as needed, just enough to create a smooth, buttery paste. Spoon the mixture into a bowl and set aside until ready to use.


  1. Bring the milk to a boil (watch it carefully so it does not overflow), and stir in the oats. Simmer until the liquid has absorbed and the oats are tender, stirring often. Stir in the homemade chocolate hazelnut butter, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Adjust the oatmeal to your desired consistency by using more milk if too thick or simmering longer if too runny.

To Serve

  1. Serve the oatmeal with a dollop of the homemade chocolate hazelnut butter, fresh blueberries, coconut flakes, roasted hazelnuts, and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.
