There were two things that I really missed when I first changed my way of eating; Nutella and Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Do you sense a theme there? Chocolate and hazelnut has to be the best combination ever invented.

I’ve used them here in a healthy, get deceptively lush dessert. If you can’t easily get hazelnut butter, sub it out for any other nut butter. It won’t bring back those heady days of eating Nutella straight from the jar… but maybe that’s a good thing.

Avocado may seem like an odd ingredient but thanks to its mild flavour it is undetectable when combined with chocolate and hazelnuts in this healthy fat bomb recipe. Enjoy!

Hey Martina!
What a delicious recipe. Will definitely be trying it out this weekend! It can sometimes be pretty tough finding something that can satisfy my sweet tooth (I used to live on chocolate before keto) haha
I know you love home-cooked deserts (obviously), but how do you feel about meal replacement deserts? I've been thinking about this brand for a while, as it would make life so much easier. But I'm not sure they'd be as good as something made from scratch. What do you think? Here is the link bit.ly/ketodietfoodreview
Have a lovely day!

Thank you Jodie! I'm personally not a fan of any ready-made treats or snacks. When I travel I either fast or just take a bag of nuts or an avocado with me. I don't eat any treats on most days, it's only occasionally and mostly when creating recipes for the blog.
