I can so eat this by the spoonful. I must be working my food processor overtime with all the nuts I am blending. Never thought it can be so fun figuring out what nut butter should I make next.
I wouldn't call this nutella, I can't seem to get a very smooth consistency with the blitzing of hazelnuts. It does have a bite to it which I quite enjoy. I tried to use almond milk to make it creamier, which it did but I'm guessing I did not add enough of it. Nevertheless, this is a very good dip or pair it with some fruit, or do what I do, which is to eat it by the spoonful!
Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
2 cups of hazelnuts-preferably roasted to release more oil
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 tsp of honey or organic coconut sugar
1/2 cup of almond milk
2 or 3 tsp of cacao powder
Blitz hazelnuts for as long as it takes to make it into a butter. Add in coconut oil to make it smooth, followed by almond milk. Add cacao powder. Taste and add some sugar if required or honey. Eat!
