Healthy Nutella?!

Oops, I did it again. I gave another yummy (but sugar-laden) food a HEALTHY MAKEOVER. Did you know the *first* ingredient in Nutella is SUGAR! No wonder people love it.

And they are tricked into thinking it’s a healthier choice by their advertising. Sure it has real hazelnuts and cocoa, but it’s got a LOT more than that. Don’t get me started on the deceptive practices of the food industry. Makes my blood boil, ha.

I’m a little obsessed with nutella flavor lately. Did you catch my recipe for “No-tella” Truffles? Omg they’re delish. But I couldn’t leave out my low-carb/keto friends on the hazelnut fun! You’re gonna thank me after you taste this! lol

I have a feeling that even more hazelnut recipes are in order! Ooooh, I bet a hazelnut PIE CRUST would be delish! Or what about cookies?! So many ideas!

So many keto BARK recipes!

Have you tried making low-carb bark yet? It’s seriously SO simple and SO delish! (And you’d never guess it’s sugar-free!)

So many of you guys LOVE my Peanut Butter Bark recipe! Did you know I also have a Cinnamon Praline Bark and Chocolate Almond Butter Bark. I LOVE THEM ALL. You’ve gotta try them. Yes, ALL of them 😉

But there’s something very special about THIS bark: HAZELNUT. Oh my goodness, the hazelnut chocolate flavor is just INCREDIBLE.

And here’s the best news: there’s less than ONE CARB per piece!! So go ahead and enjoy a piece or two, friend 😉

Easy! Just Blend, baby, BLEND

If you have a food processor or high speed blender, you’re in luck! All you do to make this bark is blend some roasted hazelnuts, cacao, coconut oil, & stevia.

Spread it out on parchment and sprinkle with more hazelnuts. Freeze it, slice it up, and enter hazelnut HEAVEN. This is seriously blissful stuff.

Where to find hazelnuts

I found my hazelnuts at Aldi (but they no longer carry them regularly). I have also gotten them at Sprouts. But if your grocery store doesn’t carry hazelnuts (which many do not any more), Amazon to the rescue!

And even BETTER, I just saw that you can buy them pre-roasted, AND blanched (which means NO skins!) This is a major time-saver.

Now you can skip the entire first step of roasting and removing the skins from your hazelnuts. That’s a good 15-20 minutes saved. Hallelujah!

How to store bark

Keep this bark stashed in your freezer for any time you need a delicious boost of good-for-you fats & protein in the form of HEALTHY Nutella!

This is made with coconut oil, so it will melt if left out at room temp.
