“The homemade Nutella” … it has been on my todo list for a while and suddenly there it was!
I’m about to go to the office and have some left over almond butter. Not much, really. I add a little cocoa to it and bring it with me. Voila, the homemade Nutella for lunch. Tasty, but not perfect. It needed a little tweaking with some extra ingredients to end up with a really good and soft spreadable Nutella. One that your can’t leave alone! And all this with the basic & simple almond butter …
Nuts about almonds
Not long ago, I discovered the almond butter. It’s not only a good substitute for peanut butter, it is also a perfect filling for these mouthwatering almond butter cups and you could use it for these no bake peanut butter (or the ‘almond butter’ -) bars. Almonds are great. If I don’t make butter from it, I add them to my oatmeal breakfast. And as nut as I am about almonds, chocolate always wins (duh ..). No surprise foods like these with the nuts & cocoa combo are the best (+ everything from scratch = YAY)!
