On average, a nun brings 230 kcal per 100 grams, which is certainly a calorie cake, but less than other pastries and snacks.
The caloric intake of the nun
On average, 100 grams of nun will bring between 230 and 240 calories, 5 grams of protein, 30 grams of carbohydrates and 10 of fat.
This will vary depending on the type of preparation: the type of cream can vary the energy intake of the pastry. Similarly, a lighter preparation at home will not have the same number of calories as the nun of the district pastry chef or that of Christophe Michalak!
In any case, in comparison with industrial cakes or spreads whose energy addition often flies above 450 kcal per 100 grams, affording a nun from time to time is not dramatic for the line. It must be avoided in the drastic phase of diet.

Some information about the nun
This pastry is made of a base of puff pastry and custard, traditionally coffee or chocolate. She was born in the 19th century in the Parisian café Frascati.
It is actually a recipe similar to that of lightning, with the difference that the presentation is very different, since the nun consists of two sprouts resting on one another and covered with the perfume of the cream that composes them.
Today, the creativity of pastry chefs allows to revisit the nun: cocoa and raspberry, vanilla, caramel, vegan versions and even … religious salty with tomato!
