Nutella Puff Pastry Swirls


These tempting pastry swirls look like they’re difficult to make…but they’re not!  They feature vegan Nutella, rolled up in flakey vegan & gluten-free puff pastry.  You’ll be going back for seconds. 

Watch the tutorial here. 




  1. Preheat oven to 220°C fan and line 2 large baking trays with grease proof paper.
  2. Unroll the pastry sheet leaving the baking paper underneath. This will prevent sticking. Use a rolling pin to slightly flatten out any wrinkles in the pastry. Dust over some flour if the pastry is too sticky.
  3. Spread 3 – 4 tablespoons of vegan ‘Nutella’ over one half of the pastry sheet, leaving the other half plain.
  4. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts (optional) over the ‘Nutella’ and press them down slightly to stick.
  5. Lift up the plain pastry, and fold over, on top of the ‘Nutella’ to create a parcel.
  6. Roll into a log. Watch the tutorial here. 
  7. Using some long / thin string or a sharp, serrated knife, cut the pastry roll into 2 inch rounds (as thick as you’d like them).
  8. Place on the baking tray, spread 2 inches apart (as they will spread / puff up).
  9. Brush the tops and sides of each swirl with some dairy-free milk. This will help get a gorgeous golden colour to the pastry, along with making them extra flakey.
  10. Sprinkle with more chopped hazelnuts (optional).
  11. Place the tray one at a time in the oven and bake for 10–12 minutes or until the pastry is golden in colour.
  12. Once fully baked, remove the tray from the oven and place the other tray in to bake and repeat.
  13. Allow to cool slightly, then serve with a dusting of icing sugar.
