“ A delicious and healthy chocolate and hazelnut spread. This is perfect for baking with, or to use as a dip too.�


Not-Tella: Homemade Hazelnut Spread Recipe by A Clean Bake acleanbake.com

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 1 cup

Ingredients • • • • • •

1 cup/140g/5oz. raw unsalted hazelnuts ¼ cup/50g/1.8 oz. heaped raw unsalted cashews 3 tbsp/21g/0.8 oz. cocoa 2-3 tbsp/28-42g/1-1.5 oz. Norbu/Natvia Pinch salt 1 tsp tapioca starch or arrowroot powder if using for spreading (as opposed to baking)

Method 1 2 3 4 5

Optional: Toasts hazelnuts in a dry pan shaking periodically, until you start to smell a toasty aroma. Add the hazelnuts and cashews to the bowl of a small food processor and pulse 10-12 times (it takes a bit longer if you toasted the hazelnuts) until they form a coarse flour, then process continously, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl periodically, until it forms a thick paste. This will take a while. The nuts hold on tightly to their flour texture, then start to form a giant ball. Just keep going; eventually the oils will release and the nuts will become a loose paste. Add the cocoa, Norbu or other granulated sweetener, salt and tapioca/arrowroot (if using) and process to combine. Taste, adjust cocoa, sweetener and salt to your preference, and process once more to combine. Transfer to a dish if serving immediately, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Note: Toasting the hazelnuts is optional and offers a slightly richer flavor to your Not-tella. Feel free to skip the step; your spread will still taste great. Do not toast the cashews.

DF

Without thickeners, the spread will be a little runnier than you may be expecting. If you want to spread it onto toast, add additional cocoa powder and/or the prescribed tapioca (or more) until it reaches your desired consistency. It will become pretty solid in the fridge, but will soften again when brought back to room temperature.

Cinnamon Swirl Spelt Bread Recipe by Vonnix

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

@vonnix

Cooking Time: 2-3 hours

Servings: 1 loaf (18 slices)

Ingredients For the bread: • 310ml/10.5 oz. warm water • 1 envelope of yeast • 373g/13.1 oz. wholemeal flour • 273g/9.6 oz. wholemeal spelt flour • 4g/0.1 oz. salt • 28g/1 oz. Natvia • 42g/1.5 oz. coconut oil, melted • 1 egg

For the egg wash: • 1 egg beaten • 5ml/0.2oz water For the filling: • 42g/1.5 oz. Natvia • 16g/0.5 oz. ground cinnamon • 40g/1.4 oz. unsweetened apple sauce • 37g/1.3 oz. dried white mulberries • 45g/1.6 oz. sultanas

Method 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

In a small bowl, stir together water and yeast. Set aside for a few minutes to allow the yeast to activate. In the bowl of a standing mixer, whisk together flours, salt and Natvia. When yeast has activated, pour into flour mixture. Add coconut oil and egg. Fit a dough hook to your standing mixer. Allow dough to knead on medium speed for around 10 minutes, or until the dough comes together and is slightly tacky (but not sticky)! Grease a large bowl with coconut oil and place dough inside. Rub the top of dough with a little more coconut oil, and then cover with plastic wrap. Place bowl in a warm place (I left my dough in the microwave) and let it rise for 1.5-2 hours, or until dough has doubled in size. Meanwhile, grease a 9x5” loaf pan with coconut oil and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and Natvia. When the dough has risen, dump onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a minute. Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to a long rectangle (around 10” x 20”).

8 Smear surface of dough with applesauce, then sprinkle over cinnamon mixture and dried fruit. 9 At one of the shorter ends, start rolling the dough as tight as possible. Pinch the seam shut with your fingers. Place dough seam side downs into prepared loaf pan. 10 Cover with a clean kitchen towel, and set aside to rise again for 45 minutes to an hour, or until the dough has risen above the edges of your pan. 11 While you’re waiting for the dough to rise, preheat your oven to 347°F. When dough is ready, take egg wash and brush over the top of bread - be very gentle so you don’t deflate your beautiful bread! 12 Bake bread for about 40 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. If the bread is browning too quickly, cover with a sheet of aluminum foil - I usually do this for the last 10 minutes. 13 Allow bread to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing, or for at least 30 minutes if you can’t resist .

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 35 minutes Servings: 8

Method 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Preheat the oven to 350F/180°C. Coat a 6" spring form pan with nonstick spray and set aside. In a large microwave-safe mixing bowl, melt the chocolate chips and butter/coconut oil together by microwaving on high for about 60 seconds until nearly melted, and stirring until completely smooth. Stir in the rest of the wet ingredients (eggs, vanilla, applesauce). In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (almond meal, cocoa powder, baking soda, Norbu, and salt) and then stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth into an even layer. In a separate bowl, prepare the swirl by stirring together the almond butter and Norbu. Distribute spoonfuls of the almond butter across the cake (or pour into a zip top bag, seal it, snip off the corner, and use it to pipe thick lines of almond butter across the cake), then gently drag a butter knife or toothpick through to create the swirl pattern. Bake for 35-40 minutes until tester comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, before removing from the pan and cooling completely on a wire rack. Melt the remaining ¼ cup chocolate chips and, while still warm, drizzle over the top of the cake. Allow to set before serving.
