Nut’Hella Good Keto Cake


As a kid I always loved Nutella.  Whenever my mom came home with a jar, I knew I would be sneaking spoonfuls of that hazelnutty gooey chocolate whenever my mom left the kitchen.  Now as an adult I still want the hazelnut chocolate flavour but a cleaner version and therefore, I came up with this cake recipe so I can enjoy the taste without the added sugar and other unnecessary ingredients.

If you loved the hazelnut spread as much as I did, you will love this cake!
