Healthy homemade Ferrero Rocher bites - Only 5 ingredients + vegan option!
For me, one of the most important things when it comes to nutrition, is to feel good in the inside and eating foods that nourish my body. However, this doesn't mean that you have to ban all your favourite treats from your diet.
I made it my duty to show you healthy and delicious treats, which taste just as good as junk food, but make you feel so much better and contain high quality ingredients.
These beautiful homemade Ferrero Rocher are full of raw cacao, healthy fats and - the best is yet to come - they are free from refined sugar. A healthy and indulgent treat, but with all the nutty flavour and full texture of the real Ferrero Rocher.
(for approx. 12 bites)
- 2/3 cup (150g) hazelnuts
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ~ 4 tbsp chopped hazelnuts
- 3-4 tbsp honey (or maple syrup for a vegan option)

Start by picking approximately 18 hazelnuts and put aside. Add the rest of the hazelnuts to a food processor and blend until they're chopped into fine pieces. Add the cacao and vanilla extract to the food processor and blend everything again.
Now add the honey or maple syrup and blend until the mixture starts to stick together. Roll the mixture into small bite-sized balls, insert one hazelnut in the center and roll the ball over the chopped hazelnuts to it.
Finally place in the fridge for 30 minutes and enjoy!
