Easy Vegan Nutella

It’s been a long time! Lots and lots going on – mostly in my writing life. Mostly, I’ve been making the same recipes (and y’all know that my husband is the one who cooks). He’s also the one who found a recipe for this and made it into his own. Honestly, I don’t think I’d eat nearly as well without him. 😉 So here we go! Let’s do this. An easy, vegan, homemade Nutella sweetened with fruit, so it’s healthy and delicious.

We put it on all kinds of things. Fruit, graham crackers, and (shown below) Homemade English Muffins. I also top my Baked Cherry Pie Oatmeal with it! Why not, right? Cherries and chocolate go SO well together. You can even stir it into Overnight Oats or Soaked Oatmeal. Honestly, it’s perfect for everything – even by the spoonful. Enjoy, friends!

Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard or #fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. And don’t forget to cultivate some positivity and gratitude today. Tell me in the comments what you’re grateful for if you’d like. Vibe high, my friends!
