Homemade Nutella

Another week, another exciting Healthy Food Friday with American Express! This week is one of my favorites, and by the title you may see why. Homemade Nutella… can I get a HUGE yes?!

Hazelnuts are delicious. They contain health benefits and well, combined with good quality chocolate and good-for-you ingredients you essentially have a healthier version of the amazing Nutella. Only it tastes EVEN better. I promise.

The Benefits of Hazelnuts

Chocolatey hazelnut flavor, spreadable, and amazing. Don’t forget a spoonful (or two) while it’s warm!
