You may need to add more sweetener depending on how sweet you like it. Pour into a jar and enjoy on toast, oatmeal, cookies!
- 2 cups hazelnuts
- 2 tablespoons cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
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.
Peel off most of the hazelnut skins, which will make a creamier spread.
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.
Add in cacao powder, vanilla extract, maple and salt and blend until combined.
