I may or may not have had a 2-minute low carb English muffin with homemade sugar-free Nutella spread with my coffee this morning. Hey, don’t judge! This indulgent sounding little meal is actually packed with protein and healthy fat, sans the carbs, gluten, and sugar. Besides, I needed a quick and easy low carb breakfast to conquer this busy day.
How is it that the long Thanksgiving weekend always flies right by? You think you have all this time, but it quickly fills up with multiple get-togethers for different sides of the family, frenzied holiday shopping, and whatever tasks you’ve been putting off doing around the house. With December right around the corner, it feels like the holiday season is here. You want something festive, and maybe chocolate-y. But with how busy this time tends to get, not to mention all the food you just made for Thanksgiving, many of us need a little break from cooking.
Sugar-free Nutella Spread
Sugar-free Nutella spread is a wonderful way to solve this little problem of “need chocolate” + “no cooking”. It requires just 5 ingredients and a few minutes to whip up! When you don’t want to spend time in the kitchen, it’ll satisfy your craving for chocolate (and Nutella!) over the aforementioned microwave English muffin.
Later, when you’re preparing desserts throughout the holiday season, you can use this sugar-free chocolate hazelnut spread in any recipe calling for Nutella. My 5-ingredient Nutella crumble bars are a great one to try! I also have another recipe incorporating it coming soon.
Like any nut butter, this low carb Nutella spread does sometimes thicken slightly over time. Partly this happens due to natural oil separation. If your recipe needs it to be ultra spreadable, or if it’s just denser than you like a few days later, you can always blend in a little more oil to make it smoother. Otherwise, if you just find that the oil separated toward the top, you’ll also want to blend it again. Don’t just pour it off, or the spread will be too hard. Try blending first without adding anything, and if it’s still too thick you can try adding a little more oil.
Blendtec Blender Giveaway
The important thing for making this recipe is a high-powered blender. Don’t underestimate this – you need something powerful enough to make nut butter! I got my Blendtec toward the end of the summer, and you guys, I’m totally in love with it! In my kitchen it’s used for everything from soups to nut butters to smoothies to making dough… I could go on.
