Recipe: Nutella

If you love chocolate and hazelnuts, Nutella is the perfect match. Unfortunately, its ingredients are not that perfect.

Once you look a bit more closely, it’s not just a lot of calories in there but also ingredients which you rather not have in your body.

Regular Nutella consists mainly of palm oil, white sugar, some milk powder and a tiny amount of hazelnuts plus some cocoa.
