    Knockoff Nutella

    My comment states there is varying evidence as to whether or not palm oil is good for you, I certainly did not condemn it. But to correct your points:a. humans do not need palm oil to function; nor do we need saturated fats. It's true we need a source of essential fats that our body can not synthesize, but in no way does that source need to be palm oilb. although there is some medical debate as to which types of fats are good and bad, the majority of studies continue to agree that a non-saturated fat is better than a saturated fat This is based on clinical trials, not based on diet opinionc. believing that palm oil/coconut oil is better for you because it is a current fad is falling victim to the popular opinion fallacy. I'm sure you've witnessed various fads in your lifetime, and I hop...

I'm sure you've witnessed various fads in your lifetime, and I hope you haven't assumed them all to be true or scientifically valid. Again, there may be research in the future that shows saturated fats aren't as bad as we thought, but to believe its better because its popular is a weak argumentd. I will consider reading the book you suggested, but upon brief research I see it was written by a naturopath and most of his other books have flashy titles - I'm very dubious about his credibility

    Knockoff Nutella

    Ya for sure. The Nutri-Bullet was a bad choice for this recipe.

    Good tip, Ill try that out next time! Thanks

    Ya I've seen those peelers and have thought about getting one for this purpose. Maybe someday

    Ya its a bit healthier. No palm oil (which Nutella gets a bad rap for; who knows if its really that terrible), and you could adjust the recipe to have less sugar and it would still taste great in my opinion. I store it in small pyrex container with a tight plastic lid, in the fridge. Not sure about how long it would last though.
