Healthy Nutella

The other day I made pancakes and had a craving for nutella but as I’ve started training to enter a charity kickboxing match – the real stuff was out of the question.

So, I decided to make my own.
I use agave syrup and roast my own hazlenuts which means it’s low Gi and rich in Magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin E.

I’ve also started putting a spoon of it with some natural yoghurt and banana as an after dinner treat. Yummmm!

As it’s packed with nuts which are a source of healthy fat – it’s best to keep the portion sizes to 1(or 2) Tbls.

————————

  1. On a tray pour the hazelnuts out evenly and roast for 10-12 minutes at 180 degrees.
  2. Take out hazelnuts and put into a clean tea towel while still hot.
