Nutella Biscotti recipe – 90 calories

I love Nutella, so I thought this would be a great recipe to try… and I certainly wasn’t disappointed! These biscotti have a great flavor and are quite crunchy. You can also try using white chocolate chips instead of the regular ones for a nice visual effect.

Tips and Advice

The number of ingredients in the recipe is not the main criterion. Berkreasilah with the number and type of vegetables used, for example using tomatoes, radishes, sweet potatoes, lettuce, spinach, and others. To complement the protein source can add ingredients such as boiled eggs, tempeh, beef, chicken, or fish, which must also be processed in a healthy way. Avoid boiling vegetables if not needed, because most vitamins and minerals will dissolve into the cooking water. Food is cooked in advance will be more easily absorbed by the body's nutrients, and also can kill harmful microorganisms.
