Healthy Hazelnut Spread
2 cups hazelnuts
1 cup almonds
¹⁄³ cup maple syrup
¹⁄³ cup melted cacao butter
4 tbsp pure cacao powder
½ cup plant-based milk (I like almond or oat!)
A pinch of salt
• Preheat the oven to 350°F and roast the nuts for 10-15 minutes until fragrant. Let cool slightly and rub them in a towel until the skin comes off as much as possible. This will make your nut spread smoother!
• Transfer the nuts to a high-speed blender or food processor and pulse until you’re left with a smooth nut butter. (This might take a while and you might have to stop in between to scrape down the sides, but it’s so worth it!)
• Add the remaining ingredients and blend again. Scoop into an airtight container and enjoy!
