Did you know that chocolate meringues are low in fat? They also can be easily converted into a sugar-free treat perfect for those on a low sugar lifestyle or concerned about refined sugars. They are also an exceptional gluten-free treat (even with the Nutella)!
Chocolate Nutella meringues are the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy, with a touch of creamy hazelnut deliciousness! What really sets these meringues apart from the store bought version is the addition of Bourbon Vanilla beans from Beanilla. Bourbon vanilla has a traditional flavor, and is the most popular type of vanilla. Bourbon vanilla from Papua New Guinea (PNG) comes from the fruit of an orchid variety called Vanilla Planifolia, and is rich in the natural organic compound called vanillin. Bourbon beans have a creamy, sweet, smooth and mellow flavor that enhances this recipe perfectly. This light and nutty treat is a wonderful addition to lunchboxes or as a quick pick-me-up during the day.
