Healthy Homemade Nutella
Nutella is a chocolate-hazelnut spread that is creamy, rich, chocolatey and oh so delicious. Though, sadly, it’s full of sugar, artificial flavoring and palm oil… not so appetizing. So I made a healthy homemade version! No nasty ingredients whatsoever. This all-natural Healthy Homemade Nutella has all the taste, texture and richness of the storebought stuff without the excess calories, sugar and fat. You will eat this by the spoonful!
You can use this Healthy Homemade Nutella in any way you’d use the storebought version, but there’s no guilt involved.
It’s perfect spread on some whole grain toast.
It makes every boring bowl of oatmeal come alive with flavor.
It’s delicious spooned over Vanilla Frozen Yogurt.
And when it’s paired with sliced apples, strawberries or bananas you’ll shout “Mmmmm!!”
I could go on listing more and more ideas but I should probably just give you the recipe, huh? I’m sure you know what you’ll do with a jar this chocolate-hazelnut magic.
Dive in head first, right?
This recipe uses organic stevia and all-natural erythritol as sweeteners instead of white sugar and high fructose corn syrup, so you can feel good about serving (and eating!) this. Storebought Nutella’s first ingredient is sugar… not so great.
Below I compare Nutella’s nutrition label with my Healthy Homemade Nutella’s nutrition label. Nutella’s nutrition label is on the left, the Desserts with Benefits nutrition label is on the right:
Wow, what a HUGE difference! For the same amount of chocolatey goodness my recipe has 110 less calories, 5g less fat (with less saturated fat too) and 21g less sugar (that’s nearly 2 tablespoons)!
You know what that means, right?
You can have DOUBLE the amount of my Healthy Homemade Nutella for less calories than the storebought stuff. Ohhh yeeeahhhh
This recipe might be light on calories and light on fat, but it sure isn’t light on flavor! It’s seriously rich, totally creamy, incredibly chocolatey and perfectly hazelnutty. Yeah, I know that’s not a word but I don’t really care because I have a jar of healthy Nutella sitting in my kitchen calling my name
