Healthy Homemade Nutella (sugar free, low fat, low calorie, gluten free, dairy free, vegan) - Healthy Dessert Recipes at Desserts with Benefits

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!
