Chocolate Hazelnut Almond Butter is my healthier alternative to that ever-so-popular sugary brand.
How to Make Chocolate Hazelnut Almond Butter
I made this Chocolate Hazelnut Almond Butter barely sweet. But if you need a bit more sweetness, feel free to add some more honey or even some maple syrup.
You can also roast the hazelnuts and remove the skins but those were two extra steps I wanted to avoid to make the process faster. Since this chocolate hazelnut almond butter is made with raw nuts, you’ll just pop everything into a food processor or powerful blender – like a Vitamix – and let it rip.
Make sure to scrape down the sides often and be patient. It can take a few minutes for everything to come together.
It’s easy to halve the quantities if you’d like to make less. Or, simple double the quantities if you’d like to make more.
How Long Does This Chocolate Hazelnut Almond Butter Last?
This nut butter will last for a couple weeks, but it’s best when kept in the refrigerator.
