No-Tella Chocolate Nut Spread (FP) ~ Low Carb, Sugar Free

Who doesn't love Nutella hazelnut spread. It is so good on just about anything. However it is not quite waist line or blood sugar friendly.

This No-Tella is made with Peanut flour and so slimming and blood sugar friendly.

8 Servings

1 cup Peanut Flour 
2 TBS Cocoa Powder
1 TBS THM Gentle Sweet or Truvia
3 finger pinch of mineral salt. (Use 3 fingers and thumb to pinch the salt)
1/2 cup of water
1/2 tsp MCT oil (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Mix all the dry ingredients together
2. Mix all the wet ingredients together
3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add more water or more peanut flour to get the consistency you are after.
You can use milled hazel nut but it will be an S instead of an FP.

NOTE: Keep your serving to 2 TBS to stay an FP. More than that and this is best in an S setting

Season Salt

I love using good spices to enhance my food. I hate having what seems like a ton of spice jars out on the counter top when I'm cooking. So I created a spice blend of some of the most common spices I use, and also some of the most common spices used in many of the Trim Healthy Mama recipes. Having a season salt also save me time in food prep and clean up. 

Season Salt

½ cup Nutritional Yeast
¼ cup Mineral Salt
2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp Ginger Powder
1 tsp Turmeric (optional)
1 tsp Paprika (optional)
1 tsp Black pepper
½ tsp thyme
½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Put in the food processor and run for 60 seconds. Store in an air tight mason jar with the shaker lid.
