is nutella as healthy as peanut butter?

Nutella vs PB: Nutella is made with hazelnuts; pb is made with peanuts. To compare, check the nutrition facts: the protein, fat and carbohydrate content, and the calories. Both of these are vegetarian, so healthier than a lot of animal products, but also look for added sugar, which raises the calories and is less healthy. Lower fat and sugar and calories and higher protein is healthier. Brands may differ.
