GO NUTS!…. with nut butter

Nut butter

How to make nut butter. I made 3 different kinds in under an hour

I have never made nut butter before. Actually I have not really eaten it before. But 2 days ago I went to the local health food store, where I tried hazelnut butter. And its fantastic! It almost tasted like Nutella.

You can make so many different kinds of nut and seed butter – sauvy and sweet. I made 3 different kinds and that only took an hour.

You can roast the nuts or make a raw nut butter. I made roasted hazelnut butter.

Take 200 grams of hazelnuts and roast for 7-8 minutes in 200 degrees oven (395 Fahrenheit).

You can make you nut butter with or without the skin. You can easily remove it by putting the nuts in a tea towel at rub for a few minutes.

Now add the nuts to a food processor and start processing. It takes about 10-15 min of processing before the butter is ready. For a while it will be hazelnut flour but slowly you will begin to see the nut flour turning runny. It’s ready when you can pour it out of the food processor.

I made one without skins, one with skins and one with skins which I added a bit of cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla. The last kind is very similar to Nutella 🙂

The butters can keep for months in the fridge – but they won’t 😉
