Recipe | Snacking on Apples & Nutella

applesnutella-1

During my health nut phase, I ate a lot of peanut butter and apples as my healthy snack. But one day I was reaching for the peanut butter in the pantry and I saw the Nutella jar sitting innocently right next to it. Hmm, I thought. I slathered on the Nutella and it was even better than I imagined. You would be surprised how well they go together. Try it! You can use any apples you’d like but so far I’m sticking to my favorite, the Fuji apple. The one above as you can tell are Granny Smith apples but it didn’t wow me like the Fuji did. I thought the tartness would complement the Nutella but the sweetness of the Fuji apple fits much better.

And if you’re curious about the calories, it has the same amount as reduced fat peanut butter but with more sugar (of course) and less vitamins. But we don’t really care about that stuff, right?

One more tip: stir in a small spoonful of Nutella in your oatmeal. Hmm-mmm! Dessert for breakfast.

  1. Mmmm. I found Polish Nutella (no hydrogenated oil! Even healthier!) at a Jon’s market. I think the problem with Nutella is that I’m tempted to eat more of it than I am peanut butter. But mmmm. I’d also recommend homemade Nutella, or the hazelnut praline paste I posted a while back. With pears.

  2. Nutella + Apples is a sure recipe for bliss. I add some PB to bring it to nirvana :-). Actually made a galette once with that combo… youve inspired me again!! Thanks!

  3. Kate, thanks for the Polish Nutella tip! I will definitely try it when it’s time to restock.

    Thanks Sara! I’m glad you like the combo.

  4. Thanks everyone for the comments!

    Amanda – That’s so funny! I hope you liked it.

    Maria and Kevin – Thanks for the tips! Now I have more reason to eat Nutella :)

  5. This sounds so good! And I was just snacking on some apples and peanut butter. I may have to run to the store today to get me a bottle of nutella :)
