Ingredients

Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

For the bars

  • ¾ cup honey
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 to 3 pinches sea salt
  • 1 ½ cups dark or semi-sweet dairy-free chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add the hazelnuts to a baking sheet. Roast for 11-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes. Transfer the hazelnuts to a kitchen towel and rub as much of the skins off as possible. Set aside a handful of hazelnuts and transfer the rest to the bowl of a food processor or high speed blender.
  • Process until a butter begins to form, about 8 to 10 minutes, scraping down sides when needed. If you are having trouble with the butter forming, add a ½ teaspoon of melted coconut oil while the food processor is running. Add another if necessary. Once smooth and creamy, add cinnamon, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and sea salt.
  • Grease a 9x13 baking pan with coconut oil, then line with parchment paper so that it hangs over two sides.
  • In a medium bowl combine chocolate hazelnut butter, honey, eggs, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer. Mix until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add baking soda and salt and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Chop the hazelnuts that were set aside and sprinkle over the top.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking pan and bake about 30 to 35 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Due to the honey, the top will brown quickly. Cover with a piece of foil after about 25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool completely and then slice into bars.
