I think we literally jumped up and down for a bit, shrieking, before dumping it into our shopping cart by the armload.
Nutella does have a significant amount of sugar, however, which is fine for most people but can be problematic for diabetics or those on significantly carbohydrate-restricted diets (commonly recommended by doctors to control some forms on epilepsy).
But guess what? THERE'S A SOLUTION.
Hold on to your seats, people - I discovered NutiLight, a natural, sugar-free and gluten-free alternative to popular chocolate hazelnut spreads out there, on Netrition the other day.
Yup, not just chocolate hazelnut, but also chocolate almond!
And they're both so divine that I eat this straight out of the jar with a spoon. SO GOOD.
They're also packed with fiber, thanks to the addition of chicory fiber (the fiber you find in fiber one granola bars).
The spreads are a bit thicker than Nutella and a little harder to spread, but they're still definitely spreadable and, if consistency is an issue for you, the consistency is just about the same if you microwave the spread for 15 to 30 seconds (depending on the amount that you're warming).
I bet these would taste great in some of those Nutella-based recipes I keep seeing pop up on Pinterest...can anyone guess what this afternoon's activity is going to be?
|To NutiLight baking, that is.|
