Homemade Hazelnut Butter Recipe!

Nut butter is a delicious and nutritious snack. Instead of buying ready-made nut butters from stores, you can easily make them at home. Here is a simple nut butter recipe:

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (preferably coconut oil or hazelnut oil)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • Salt (optional)

  1. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast them in a preheated 175 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. This will enhance the flavor of the nuts and make them easier to crush.
  2. Put the hazelnuts from the oven in a food processor and grind on high speed for 1-2 minutes. The nuts may be difficult to grind at first, but after a while the oil will be released and the nuts will be more easily crushed.
  3. Once the nuts are well ground, add the vegetable oil, honey or maple syrup and salt and mix for a few more minutes.
  4. Keep mixing until the hazelnut paste has a smooth and creamy consistency.
  5. Put the nut butter in a glass jar and store it in the refrigerator. This recipe makes about 2 cups of nut butter.
