Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325F. Add your hazelnuts to a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 3-4 minutes or until lightly golden.  The hazelnuts I use are skinless and have already been roasted.  I find that roasting them for just a few minutes, gives them a little boost in flavor and the heat also allows them to blend up better in the food processor.
  • If your hazelnuts are raw, roast 7-10 minutes instead.  If your hazelnuts have the skins on them, once roasted place them on a kitchen towel and rub them together to remove the skins.  The hazelnuts that I used, I bought  skinless and roasted, which makes things much easier!
  • Remove from the oven and pour into your food processor, while they are still warm.  Process until they are broken down into a butter.  First they will become like a meal or hazelnut flour.  Then it will start to clump up.  Then it will start to come together like a butter.  This is the same method I use to make my own almond butter. This could take up to 10 minutes, depending on your food processor or blender.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients and process until smooth and creamy.Store in the fridge in an airtight container for a few weeks or freeze.

Notes

If you would like the spread to be thicker, you can add in 1/4 cup of heavy cream during the last few minutes in the food processor.  I tested it and it really makes the spread thick and super creamy.
