The other week I went home with a whopping 2-pound bag of Virginia peanuts, so I made a batch of homemade peanut butter in the food processor. The end result was an intensely nutty and fresh spread nothing like the kind from a jar.
Hazelnut shortage in Turkey? Don't rush the grocery store and start hoarding Nutella. Do try making your own chocolate-hazelnut spread using domestic nuts from Oregon and Washington! As always, from scratch tastes better and takes less than an hour!
I like it chunky and slathered liberally. This recipe gives you an excuse to eat quantities of it as an adult, guilt-free. I used hazelnut oil for my peanut butter, as that’s what I had in the house, but feel free to use whichever nut oil you fancy.
Do you have a food processor, a few basic ingredients and about half an hour? Then you can whip up a jar of this chocolate-hazelnut spread. Think of it as Nutella's vegan cousin, full of chocolate-y, nutty goodness and sweetened with maple syrup.
