With more and more emphasis on the dangers of too much sugar in our diets, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to resist tucking into sugar laden treats to keep cravings at bay. I’ve recently discovered that most savoury foods are packed with this little evil which to be honest shocked me as I was of the impression that it was sweet that we needed to worry about! One of my favourite treats is Nutella spread on crackers. Having recently discovered that Nutella has 5.5 teaspoons of sugar per 2 tablespoons I was a little sad to tell you the truth so I set out to find a cleaner, healthier and reduced sugar version of this delicious chocolate and Hazelnut spread. I came across some recipes online and tweaked them a tad to find a recipe that suited me. This took me 5 minutes to make and the taste is incredible. (I am eating it from the jar with a spoon as I type- No lie!) I am now on a mission to find healthier, low sugar versions of all my favourite sweets and treats! I hope you enjoy.
