I made the Primal Nutella a few weeks ago and MAJORLY failed. Apparently I find the taste of Stevia appalling. So I made a second batch. The texture isn't right but I think I know why. The problem is that it's pretty nutty tasting. Is there a way to cut that bitterness? I have had an awful lot of food failures lately and am getting a bit discouraged so any help would be appreciated.
The recipe was a cup of Hazel nuts, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, coconut oil for the consistency and sweetener which I went with a tad bit of simple syrup and honey because I LOATHE Stevia.
Sorry guys! Posted this in the wrong thread. DUR.
I'll answer anyway....I'd use xyliol. it'd be perfect.

Also, soak the hazelnuts first. You'll get that tannin-y taste out and the nuts will be much more mellow and sweet.
