Want to make your own hazelnut butter? It’s easy! Use raw or toasted hazelnuts, and try adding other nuts or seasonings (salt, vanilla, cocoa powder) for fun flavor combinations.

Ingredients

Preparation

If you prefer raw hazelnut butter, skip the toasting step.

To toast:

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Spread the nuts on a baking sheet. Place them in the oven and toast until lightly colored and skins are blistered, 10 to 15 minutes.

Wrap toasted nuts in a clean kitchen towel and let sit for 2 minutes. Rub nuts in the towel to remove loose skins (optional). Don’t worry if all of the skins don’t come off! Cool completely.

To make the butter:

Place hazelnuts in the bowl of a food processor. Run until the nuts release their oils and make a smooth paste. This will take 10 to 15 minutes, and you will need to scrape the bowl down occasionally.

Store in a clean container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
