Ever wondered how to make nut butter at home? Watch this helpful step-by-step video on how to make homemade hazelnut butter! Ultra creamy, smooth, and rich. Perfect on toast, oatmeal, ice cream, parfaits, AND a spoon! Best of all, it's sugar free, low carb, gluten free, vegan, and keto-friendly!


  • 4 cups Hazelnuts (you can use raw or toasted)


  • Add the hazelnuts to a food processor and pulse about 20-30 times until you get hazelnut crumbs.  Process again for a minute straight until you get hazelnut meal.
  • Scrape down the sides of the food processor and process again (follow your processor's instructions, I had to stop every 60 seconds. It took me about 20 minutes total of constant processing, scraping, processing, etc...).
  • When nut butter is smooth and buttery give it a taste (add salt and/or stevia to taste). Let cool a bit and scoop into a pretty jar with a sealable lid. Store covered in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

Feel free to add ~1 tbs of oil (preferably a nut oil like hazelnut oil, walnut oil, almond oil, or even avocado oil) to make the processing go faster, you'll just get a slightly drippier nut butter.
