Chocolate nut spread

Ingredients

1 cup (250ml) of organic Medjool dates + 5 tbsp. (75ml) of water
1/2 cup (125 ml) organic chocolate chunks
1 cup (250ml) raw organic hazelnuts
1 cup (250ml) raw organic almonds
1/2 cup (125ml) raw organic walnuts
1/4 cup (62.5ml) unsweetened organic cocoa powder
1/2 cup (125ml) of almond milk
2 Tablespoons (30 ml) organic coconut oil

Preparation

1
Preheat your oven at 350º.
2
On a cookie sheet, spread the hazelnuts, the almonds, the walnuts and put them in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
3
In the meantime, cook your dates with the water for 5 minutes in a small pot.
4
When it’s all in puree, melt in your chocolate chunks, the coconut oil and stir in the cocoa powder.
5
When your nuts are roasted, put them in the food processor and mix until you see it starts to turn into butter, about 3-4 minutes. I find it’s faster when the nuts are still hot compared to cold ones.
6
Add in the chocolate and continue mixing until it’s a paste. Put in the almond milk and you will get a nice smooth texture, really spreadable.
