Making your own organic Hazelnut Butter is fun and rewarding! It is really easy to do and will save you a lot of money in the process. What more could you ask for?
Well, the benefits don’t stop there! Hazelnuts are super high in plant based fats, protein, vitamin e, thiamin and magnesium. Just to name few. To find out more about the added health benefits of Hazelnuts click here.
I have found that having a good blender is a must when it comes to make things such as nut butters. I recommend using a high speed blender to get smoother and faster results. I personally use a Nutri Ninja. There is a lot of blenders on the market ranging in price and capability. I had a tight budget so I opted for the Ninja. It came highly recommended on many vegan forums. I have been using it over a year now and I have not been disappointed as of yet.
