Chocolate hazelnut spread, it’s delicious!
But mainstream options contain tree nuts and milk,
neither of which work for our food allergies.
Since I’m not the one with the allergies,
I have been known to sneak a yummy Justin’s nut butter pouch when I can.
The ingredients are decent and natural, and it makes a delicious snack for mom.
But this still wasn’t solving the problem of not having yummy chocolate spreads for my boys.
That’s when I decided to take matters into my own hands…
and just make some!
In hindsight, I should have done this a looooooong time ago because my kids love it.
Dairy-free and nut-free chocolate apple spread?
And you can’t get much easier and cost effective than this.
Even those who can eat the store-bought spreads should consider making this at home.
These spreads can be quite expensive otherwise.
All this takes is a handful of ingredients, mixed together.
No stove, blender, or mixer required, and the kids can help!
Additionally, chocolate spread can be made safely for several allergies.
Use nut butters or seed butters if those work for your allergies.
We use unsweetened peanut butter because we are allergic to tree nut but not peanut.
Controlling the sugar content,
using my favorite natural ingredients,
and having a nice, filling, protein treat for my kids is fantastic.
I don’t really have a recipe because this is such a “to taste” kind of recipe,
but the ingredients are below. Enjoy!
