There are very few people in the world who don’t love the hazelnut-y taste of nutella, however with so much sugar packed into one tiny jar, it’s pretty obvious why eating it by the spoonful becomes a childhood past-time. So, if you’re mindful of what you put in your mouth, this raw, homemade nutella cups recipe by Instagram sensation @cleaneatingsurvivalguide is the ultimate alternative!

“The inspiration for this recipe came from my childhood love of nutella. Every bite of this dessert takes me back to sneaking a spoon of nutella as a child, only this dessert is healthier and more nutritious for you!”
