When you’re in the mood for some chocolate goodness, it’s time for my joyful “peanutella.” This spread is insanely delish and comes packed with protein and a rich, chocolatey flavor that rivals the iconic chocolate hazelnut spread we all know and looove… but for far fewer calories, carbs and sugar. My house is officially hooked. Spread a generous layer of this heavenly topping on whole-grain toast and add sliced bananas for a dose of heart-healthy potassium. Not bananas for bananas? Swap the berry (yes, fun fact: bananas are actually berries because they have many little seeds that are protected by the sweet fruit and peel) for blueberries, raspberries or sliced strawberries. It’s a toast-worthy slice of heaven.

Peanutella (Chocolate PB Spread):

  • • ¾ cup powdered peanut butter*
  • • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • • Pinch of salt
  • • 6 to 8 tablespoons water

*If you don’t have powdered peanut butter, see recipe in directions for using traditional creamy peanut butter.


  • • 1 slice whole grain toast
  • • 1 to 2 tablespoons Peanutella
  • • 1 banana, sliced in rounds
  • • Other berries for topping, optional



    TO MAKE THE PEANUTELLA: Mix all ingredients together until smooth and creamy. If it’s too stiff and thick, add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional water and continue to stir until you reach a spreadable-velvety consistency.

    If using creamy peanut butter, soften ¼ cup peanut butter in microwave (about 30 seconds) and then stir in 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, 3 tablespoons sugar, a pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons of water. Mix until smooth and well-blended. Add a 3rd tablespoon water if it’s too thick.

    TO MAKE THE TOAST: Top your whole grain toast with 1 to 2 tablespoons of Peanutella and layer with bananas and other preferred fruit.
