Fellow Nutella lovers, stop what you’re doing right now as our day is here – World Nutella Day.
Legends created this day back in 2007 as a way to appreciate Nutella and its versatility in the kitchen. Soon after thousands of like-minded die-hards were sharing their Nutella creations on social media and no one has turned back since.
My best memories of this creamy hazelnut spread are from childhood pancake days and skiing trips. Then of course there are the odd few spoon-in-the-jar Sundays where things can get really out of hand.
Thankfully Nutella isn’t a complete sin. It’s actually relatively healthy in appropriate quantities, which is why these Nutella Energy Balls are the perfect chocolate fix when we’re all trying to watch our sugar intake.
Just one ball contains 95 calories, and with peanut butter and almonds in the mix they also make for a perfect protein kick. I nibble these in the afternoons when my sweet craving gets the better of me, or grab a few in the morning when I need a quick breakfast.
They’re healthy, delicious and so easy to make so grab a spoon and your Nutella jars and make them immediately. Horray for Nutella Day!
