If there’s one thing I love about this time of year, it’s all the baking I get to do. The holiday season is upon us! (Does that sound cliche? I couldn’t help it.) Even though we don’t celebrate Christmas, this time of year still means baking (healthy versions of) delicious goodies. Like sugar-free Nutella bars, hmm?
My latest baking addiction is these rich, buttery chocolate hazelnut crumble bars. They’re so simple with just five ingredients, yet they taste absolutely decadent. By the way, they are also paleo, gluten-free, egg-free, sugar-free, and low carb – perfect for all kinds of food allergies. My friends with no food allergies love them, too. They’re just as good as cookies, but faster to prepare since you don’t have to scoop the batter into individual portions – just press into the pan and cut them up at the end.
Even when I’m not baking these bars, I’ve been totally obsessed with Go Lo Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (and the company isn’t even sponsoring this post, I just truly love the product). It’s low carb, lacking any strange ingredients, and tastes just like Nutella. It’s sweetened with erythritol, which is my favorite sweetener because it can be found in nature, doesn’t spike blood sugar, and has no after taste or side effects. Love, love, love it. I can’t say that enough.
One day I was eating this decadent spread, and thought to myself, this would make a perfect dessert filling! And so, these sugar-free Nutella bars were born. You could easily substitute a homemade chocolate hazelnut spread, or even original Nutella if you don’t mind the sugar. (Update: I also love making these with my homemade 5-ingredient sugar-free Nutella spread) Your favorite nut butter, flavored or original, would also work, but you’d want to sweeten it first.
