Ad 4 Olive Group Saturn


No Tella Fella

Serves 4

The concept of Nutella is intriguing, hazelnuts and chocolate. Then you look at the actual ingredients and it's all downhill from there. Ditto on some of the healthier alternatives where the first ingredient might be cane sugar. The only solution was to make my own healthy version with all organic ingredients.


  • ⅓ cup hazelnut butter
  • 3 TBS cacao powder
  • 1 tsp Swerve
  • 1 TBS blood orange infused olive oil
  • 4 slices of Dave's Killer Bread
  • 2 bananas


1. In a small bowl, combine almond butter, cacao powder, Swerve and olive oil. Blend until smooth and creamy.

2. Toast the bread in a toaster. Apply the spread evenly across all four slices and top with sliced banana.


  • Other nut butters can be subbed
