A pinch of salt
1 teaspoon Natural Vanilla Extract


This is probably one of the easiest (and tastiest) recipes you’ll ever make…

  • Simply roast the hazelnuts at 180oc for 10 minutes.
  • Grind them up in a food processor until smooth.
  • Add maple syrup, cacao, maca, salt and vanilla extract.
  • Stir until full mixed.

The mixture should be perfectly thick and creamy, ideal for spreading on to a warm slice of toast, drizzling over a sliced banana, or simply eaten from the jar (our preferred method!).
