Perfect Alternative to Nutella!

Nutella is not vegan but this alternative is just as delicious and full of protein.

Breakfast in America can be a vegan’s nightmare.  Seems everything traditional is loaded with meat, eggs, butter, dairy, etc.  The search for morning meal options is ongoing for this breakfast eater so I was very excited when introduced to this chocolaty substitute.

Now don’t think this is a lame substitute!  This was made for me and I was fooled.  I did not believe it was not dairy until I saw the recipe.  We put it on top of whole wheat pizza dough with fresh fruit (mango, kiwi, cherry) topping, like a giant danish.  It can be breakfast or dessert (or lunch or dinner)!  You have to give it a try!!

Try this recipe below and share what you put it on.
