The 'Minimalist Baker' blog recently published a recipe for homemade hazelnut butter. In recent years, many consumers have swapped store-bought peanut butter for healthier sandwich spreads. This lightly spiced hazelnut butter provides the perfect way to dress up any slice of bread.
The DIY hazelnut butter is extremely simple to make and only requires three ingredients. To begin, it is necessary to toast the hazelnuts until they are fragrant and golden brown. Once roasted, the hazelnuts can be combined with cinnamon and sea salt and then pulsed in a food processor. The food processor helps to turn the nuts into a smooth and creamy sandwich spread. For those who prefer nut butters that are on the sweeter side, there is also the option to add a little bit of coconut sugar.
The end result is a delicious nut butter that is gluten-free and vegan-friendly.
