Ingredients

  • 300g  hazelnuts
  • 70g or to taste sugar  or other preferred sweetener
  • 30g  cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp  coconut oil
  • 1 tsp  vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp  salt

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast for 12 to 15 minutes, until fragrant.
  2. Carefully put the hot hazelnuts in a jar with the lid on and shake. The papery skins will fall right off. Remove the nuts that are now skinless and put them in a food processor or a high-powered blender, then re-shake the jar until the rest of the skins come off as well.
  3. Grind the hazelnuts for about 5 minutes until they turn into a creamy hazelnut butter.
  4. Add the sugar or other sweetener, cocoa powder, coconut oil, vanilla, and salt. Blend for another minute until all the ingredients are combined smooth.
  5. Transfer to a jar. Store in the refrigerator for several weeks.
