Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I am absolutely addicted to Nutella.Does this recipe have less calories & fat than the original? Seriously I had to freeze the jar and still finished it in 3 days, not sure if I want to venture down this road. I could make tiny batches at a time without having the temptation of an entire jar on hand Submitted by:

This recipe is good but it does not have less calories than nutella! A serving of nutella is 2 tbsp and has 200 cal, 12 grams of fat for 2 tbsp. This recipe is 1 tbsp serving. So they are about the same. It has less processed ingredients tho Submitted by:

please rate recipes only if you tasted it and it is good or bad. If this has way too many calories for you, then don't make it. But to rate it if you haven't made it messes with the ratings and is unfair to the submitter. Submitted by:

I think I may try this with 1 cup of a natural peanut butter (already pretty well blended basically) and 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips. Still should add a bit of a different flavor, while not adding near as much sugar and not making this taste like a dessert Submitted by:

Made this with hazelnuts, unsweetened baking chocolate and maple sugar. Absolutely delicious. Will try more nuts for the same amount of chocolate next time.

Does this need to be kept refrigerated? Mine got very hard in the frig.

I read a story a long time ago...This is like eating a candy bar. 160 cals for Kroger brand Nutella for 2 tbps then think about even if you add a whole wheat sandwhich round for 100 calories...that's 260 calories...and who can really stop at only 2 tbps...thats why i just don't buy it anymore.

You people keep hollering about Nutella, but it has partially hydrogenated oil too. This recipe has 2 ingredients, and the fat is GOOD fat. The smaller the ingredient list, the better. Have you all learned nothing! Nutella is NOT good for you, at all! Submitted by:

If you only compare calories, then no, this isn't an improvement over Nutella, but if you compare healthiness of ingredients and even taste, yes it's an improvement. Love it ! Submitted by:

Nutella has 2g protein, 11g fat, and worst of all, 22g carbs--more than twice as many carbs as this recipe. And the first two ingredients in Nutella are sugar and palm oil. There are only 50 hazelnuts in a Nutella jar. Plus, Nutella is made with hazelnuts; almonds are more nutritionally dense. Submitted by:

I have a comment as to how this is "better" than Nutella, despite the fat/calorie facts. The key here is that the recipe is for almonds rather than hazelnuts and therefore provides better Omega-3 benefits. If the sugar content is a problem for you, might I suggest adding only 1/2 the chocolate chips Submitted by:

No. This has MORE calories than Nutella. Nutella has 100 calories in a tablespoon, and this has 100.6 calories. Also there are way more than 2 ingredients. Have you looked at the ingredients in a package of chocolate morsels? This recipe is very misleading. Submitted by:

This says that each serving is one rounded tablespoon and that there is one hundred and one calories per serving. That means the small dish pictured above has about 1,000 calories. Submitted by:

I think that a lot of you are missing the point here. This doesn't have the chemicals and other crap in it that Nutella does. 100 calories from a healthy alternative is a better option that 100 calories from an unhealthy option. It's not rocket science folks, it's common sense. Submitted by:

I have tried this with pecans - I roast 2 cups of pecans and then put them in a food processor. I put 1/2 c of choc chips with a little coconut oil on the stove to melt. Once I remove it, I add a little Hawaiian Chile pepper salt and add all of this to the pecan butter. Pretty tasty. Submitted by:

This recipe conveniently forgets to list sugar and saturated fat. Tollhouse Semisweet Chips have 8g of sugar & 2.5g saturated fat in EACH 1 Tbsp. The calorie count is EXACTLY the same as for Nutella (1 Tbsp=100 calories). No wonderful health benefits here. Shame on you for omitting data. Submitted by:

How funny! I just read this recipe in the Sparkpeople lunch cookbook on my Kindle while at the gym this am.Looks good, but WAYYYYYYYY too many calories for me! I don't see any calorie savings over Nutella, though you are avoiding extra sugar and chemical additives.

I wish folks would do the math before complaining about the fat & calories. If you divide the yield by the # of servings, you'd get a serving size of 2 tbsp., not 1 tbsp. In which case, YES, it has less calories and fat than Nutella. (As an admitted Nutellaholic, I'm eager to give this one a try...) Submitted by:

Also going to point out that 1 serving of this is 1 tablespoon and 1 serving on Nutella is 2 tablespoons. I will agree it is probably a cleaner food? Depending on the choco chips used. Kinda bummed after evaluating nutrition info. Submitted by:

how about unsweetened cocoa and sweetener, meaning no sugar added? Certainly healthier/lower carb, no?
If the cocoa means it's dry, us a dash of liquid sweetener, even flavoured, like DaVinci or Toriani?

I think perhaps the key in comparing this to Nutella is to concentrate not on the quantity (grams of fat or sugar or calories) bur rather on the quality of the nutrients (non-hyrdogenated oils, real foods) and recall that it's a "better" treat, a "healthIER" choice vs. a staple healthy choice.

Looks delicious and I love almonds and chocolate chips but I don't eat sugar and am on a moderate calorie diet so wouldn't eat this really. I had made it when I did the no stars rating and just tasted because then I was eating sugar. It was good but just too high in the bad stuff for me to cook. Submitted by:

Made my version with Whole Foods freshly ground almond butter and Enjoy Life! chocolate chips! Awesome. Hit that sweet spot! I almost added cocoa instead of the chips, as the cocoa would cut down on calories, but went with Enjoy Life! instead. Submitted by:

i really liked this and had fun making it.

also to the person commening before me, yes it is about the same calorie count, but has way less sugar, and way less sodium.
also has less fat among other things so this is still better for you overall.

There is more to nutrition than calories. You have to consider protein, type of fat, minerals, and vitamins. This looks like a great treat, if you need more energy. Submitted by:

I substituted fat free sugar free chocolate syrup I got from health food store made with double clarified water and dark chocolate to add to the almonds. Almost the same recipe except I added 1t. of EVOO. Tastes great mine I'm sure has more more calories because of olive oil. But I love it. Jem Submitted by:
