Making homemade hazelnut butter only requires one simple ingredient, roasted hazelnuts.  This nutty spread is delicious and a great alternative to traditional nut butter.



2 cups (276 g) raw shelled hazelnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and spread out the hazelnuts on a baking tray.  Then roast the hazelnuts for 10-13 minutes.  Stir halfway through.  The nuts will become fragrant and the skins will start to pull away.
  2. Once done, let them cool briefly (5-10 minutes), then remove the skins by placing the hazelnuts in a kitchen towel and pulling up the four corners to make a pouch.  Then use your other hand to rub the hazelnuts inside the towel to create friction to remove the skins.  Or take the skins off each individual hazelnut.  Remove the hazelnuts from the papery skins.
  3. Blend in a food processor (or a high-speed blender only if you have a tamper stick).  Scrape down the sides as needed.  It will take around 5 minutes or more depending on the strength of your food processor.


Remove loose skins and don’t worry about super stubborn ones that don’t come off.
