Keto Nutella Recipe

Image
I am a tad bit obsessed with Nutella...some might even call me an addict. The sad part about that is that Nutella really doesn't fit in with my ketogenic lifestyle. That was why I was pumped to find a keto friendly Nutella recipe over at this site. First, it was really easy to make and a very limited cleanup. There are just a few ingredients and all just added into a food processor or high powered blender.  Did it taste exactly like Nutella? No. Did it fulfill my Nutella craving? Yes! Sometimes when we choose to make a lifestyle change we have to make some sacrifices...Nutella just might have to be one of mine! Enjoy!

Overall, I love the holidays. Thanksgiving is my favorite. My family comes from all over the country and each one brings their favorite dish. We have stuffed artichokes, bread, every pie you can imagine, bread, my aunt Mary's sweet potato casserole loaded with all the toppings, bread...you get the point.
