    Nutella ideas and help

    Shop Now
    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.

    You could try to substitute macadamias. I believe they are less bitter than hazel nuts. Good luck!

    Did you roast and peel the hazelnuts? Too many of the brown skins add bitterness.

    what about pure glucose? At least it doesn't contain fructose, if I remember correctly.

    some cocoa powders do seem more bitter than others.
