Prep time 5mins
Cook time 10mins


  • 2 cups hazelnuts
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Roast hazelnuts on a baking sheet for 8-10 min to get the natural oils heated and make it easier to blend.

  • Step 2

    Peel off most of the hazelnut skins, which will make a creamier spread.

  • Step 3

    Add hazelnuts to a food processor or high speed blender. Blend until a creamy butter is formed. This may take 8-10 minutes depending on how powerful your blender is.

  • Step 4

    Add in cacao powder, vanilla extract, maple and salt and blend until combined.
