I found a way to make Nutella healthy.
These are horribly fattening. I made them this weekend and am actually proud to say that I did not eat a single one of these sinful sandwiches. I will admit to having a couple of the Nutella cookies though. I mean, c’mon. It’s Nutella for crying out loud.
For those wanting the recipe:
- 1 Jar of Nutella (small jar)
- 1 Cup of flour
- 1/4 Cup of sugar
- 1 Egg
- ~1 Tablespoon of milk
- Peanut Butter
Mix the Nutella, flour, sugar, and egg into a batter. Add just enough milk to moisten the batter up. Roll the mixture up into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool and then add the peanut butter filling. They will be super soft so let them cool a bit before putting the PB filling on.
I am guessing that each one of these sandwiches has about 500 calories in it. But you could get some of the ingredients in the organic section which would automatically make it healthy, right? RIGHT?
Got a buddy that swears that this stuff is better than Nutella. While its good, it doesn’t touch Nutella. I cant keep Nutella in the house because I cant stay out of it. But that got me thinking… For those that eat clean but have the need to satisfy a sweet tooth, what is your go-to snack/cheat?

The warm-up was, as it has been recently, wicked. I didn’t think much of it until my forearms started to burn half way through. It was 30 seconds of work & 30 seconds of rest of 5 hang cleans, 5 thrusters, 5 snatches, and 5 overhead squats (all with the 45# bar). A few rounds in they said we couldn’t rest the bar on our backs and had to hold it at our waist. Talk about getting the heart rate up!
As for the actual WOD, I felt like I made it through this workout a lot better than some of the other recent workouts. I felt like I rested less and worked more. I had contemplated going up to 135 on the push press but after talking to a few of the stronger guys, I opted not to. Looking back, I think that was the right call but in the back of my mind I know I could have handled 135. This turned out to be an awesome all body workout. 10 2/3 rounds @ RX.
Post-WOD I hit the rower and managed to sneak in a quick PR on my 500m row with a time of 1:39. In my log book, there are various level testing requirements and I want to start going through those as another self-measurement tool.
