Yep. I see it. I’m not going to pretend that these keto chocolate hazelnut twists look amazingly attractive.

I am going to tell you that they are incredible. They’re chocolatey and nutty with a nice crisp and have all of those familiar chocolate-hazelnut flavours that we miss.

Using the 5-Ingredient Keto Nutella (simple with hazelnuts) or Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (using hazelnuts, macadamias and almonds) means that you’re avoiding all of the nasty sugars and fillers that are in the commercial high-carb and high-sugar varieties.

And, if your friends says “Ewwww! They look like….” Just smile, knowing that these keto Nutella twists are more for you. Enjoy!
