Sugar free nutella & peanut butter
Since I have stopped eating sugar I have been able to come up with homemade versions of some of my favourite spreads - Nutella and peanut butter!
For nutella I just whizz up some bland tasting nuts, I had macadamias on hand today so I used those, then add 3 tablespoons cacao powder, 1 tablespoon margarine, 1 tablespoon dextrose and some milk to create the right consistency.
For peanut butter I whizzed up a packet of peanuts until it became as fine as I could get it with my blender, then added 1 tablespoon olive oil, pinch of cayenne pepper and a pinch of vegetable salt. I whizzed it up again for a couple of minutes.
Neither of these versions will look as smooth, nor taste as sweet as the commercial ones, BUT that's the whole point. To me they taste divine.
