Who says that you can’t eat your favorite sweets and have a ripped, muscular physique at the same time?
No one, not anymore.
Until now, we were all well aware of the fact that store-bought sweets are packed full with unhealthy carbs, additives and preservatives, products which should never find their way into your home and body.
Who would have thought that Nutella and ketosis, or any other healthy diet for that matter, could live in harmony?
Nutella, like countless other brand name spreads have been known for decades as the ideal way to start your day, so much so that marketing experts have spent most of their careers creating a culture of necessity for certain products at the breakfast table.
Well, no longer.
With this amazing, healthy keto friendly Nutella recipe I’m going to share with you today, you will be able to enjoy everyone’s favorite sweet in the world and stay on point with your nutrition and weight loss goals.
Let’s get to it!
When can you eat it?
Unlike store bought sweets, when you make your food by yourself you are able to keep track of what you put in and are in full control of the ingredients. This lets you stay healthy and you will always know what you are putting into your body and what you are feeding those who are dearest to you.
Having said that, you can serve and indulge in this homemade low carb Nutella pretty much anytime you like, per your personal preference.
Try to always cut out carbs completely at the end of the day, but even if you indulge once in a while after hours, the total carb intake is so low that it won’t have any negative effects on your progress in the gym.
Just be wise with your eating, and enjoy.
Creating the Goodness
For this recipe, you will need to invest 5-10 minutes of your time and the following ingredients:
- 2 cups hazelnuts
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pure stevia extract
- a few drops of liquid hazelnut stevia
Toast the hazelnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes, until fragrant.
Place the toasted hazelnuts on a clean surface and spread the out to cool.
You can then proceed to rub them with a towel in order to loosen and remove the skin. Don’t worry if you can’t remove the skin of off every piece, it will taste just fine.
Once cleaned, you can put them in a blender or food processor and blend until turned into fine crumbs.
Then add all of the other ingredients and blend until it all turns into a fine, smooth spread.
You should taste and adjust the salt to stevia ration as per your preference.
