Combining two favourite breakfast spreads into one: This healthy sugar free peanut nutella is so simple to make and great on bread or waffles.
Remember Elvis' peanut butter banana sandwich? It was fried, sometimes with a couple of bacon slices in it; and it's so famous for its decadence it even has its own Wikipedia page.
Naturally, it's famous because Elvis is famous, but there is something to be said about combining two (or three) wonderfully tasty things and turning them into something new that's just an explosion of flavours.
Now, I know a kid that loves peanut butter with nutella. This kid is not famous and therefore there is no Wikipedia entry about peanut butter nutella. But when I was thinking about what to make with the peanut flour the kind people from Sukrin sent me, I thought of that kid's happy face and knew I'd follow his good example.
It's simple to make your own nut-ella with hazelnuts, cocoa powder and sweetener. So simple and so delicious, in fact, that I have made this sugar free nut-ella already and followed on with these no bake nut-ella bars.
Sugar free peanut nutella, friends, is even simpler. There's no roasting and grinding of nuts. It's you with a fork, a bowl and minimum elbow grease.
You mix the peanut flour with some almond milk (or milk), add cocoa powder, coconut butter and some sweetener. The result is a creamy spread that is, if I may say so, rather irresistible.
The nice thing about peanut flour is that it is not only high in protein, but also fat reduced and therefore less "sticky" than peanut butter. I always feel like my teeth are wearing little peanutty jumpers after biting into peanut butter. To add some creaminess to the spread, I added coconut butter, which you could sub with coconut oil if that's easier to get hold of.
Sugar free peanut nutella is definitely one of the new staples in our fridge.
It's great with waffles and on bread (I'm working on a grain free muffin recipe right now, so watch this space). And there is one more unexpected use I found: If you omit the two additional tablespoons of almond milk and add another tablespoon of coconut butter, it makes a delicious peanut nutella frosting to use on cupcakes or as a filling for cakes. Win-win!

Can you use almond flour instead ..?
Hi Liz, I would only recommend using almond flour if you have a good food processor. The peanut flour by Sukrin is super super fine and most almond flours are not. To ensure you get a smooth paste with regular almond flour you need to be able to blend it really well. I have made almond butter using regular almond flour, but it takes a few minutes. I hope this helps.
Just made this and added a T of roasted hazelnut oil. Very easy & delicious! Thanks for sharing...
Hi, I'm new to going sugar free and this may sound like a silly question but is coconut butter the same as coconut oil??
Not a silly question at all 🙂 No, they are different. Coconut butter is buttery-creamy (and absolutely delicious) and contains the meat of the coconut. It's Coconut oil does not. It's like the difference between peanut butter and peanut oil.
When you buy coconut oil, it's good to get a virgin oil as opposed to a refined oil. It's much less processed.
Coukd you make this using the peanut butter powder they now have in stores that you just have to mix water in??? That That would That would be easier for me me to get then peanut flour
You could try that - let me know how it went! The peanut butter mix made with the peanut flour is less "sticky" in the mouth than peanut butter. Experiment with the amount of liquid you use and see what gives you the right consistency
WOW! This looks so creamy and tasty!
Thank you! It is made in no time and is so good.
Im going to make this for my sister for a Christmas gift! Brilliant!
