3. Process the hazelnuts

Process the hazelnuts in a food processor for about 2 to 5 minutes until they start to look like oily butter.

5. Process some more

6. Store or devour

Once you get the desired texture, place into a storage jar (for up to 6 weeks) or enjoy immediately on toasts, desserts or just dip a spoon in! You can always add some dark chocolate chips or dates for extra darkness and sweetness, or if you want it less oily, swap some oil for almond milk or water.
