Spread the love…or in this case, the “peanutella.” This health-ified version of the iconic chocolate-hazelnut spread that everyone knows and loves comes packed with protein and a rich, indulgent flavor but with far fewer calories and sugar. You can use it as a topping for your favorite fruits (bananas, applie slices or berries), whole-grain toast, or if you can’t resist, even dip your spoon right in. It’s seriously that good!

This recipe makes Makes a scant cup

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

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


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 third tablespoon water if it’s too thick.
