Hazelnut butter (or any nut butter) is made by crushing the nuts until a paste forms. I made use of a blender to make this spread which is high in protein, fiber, and essential fatty acids.
Head straight on to the Recipe For Hazelnut Butter ♥
Last month my car license came up for renewal. Before the world became concerned with illegal transactions we could send a cheque off in the post and the license disc would be posted back to us. But this is no longer the case. Now we have to go in person. The form clearly indicates that you need to take with proof of residence and your Identity Document. Together with the means to make payment, either cheque, cash or credit card. And your odometer reading needs to be filled in on the form. I have no clue why they need the latter information as we can drive our cars here until the wheels fall off! They never go for roadworthy checking unless you are selling the car. When I arrived I was about tenth in the queue. The person being dealt with at one teller was creating quite a comic scene.

I only caught the end of it, but she had not brought any of the documents with her that she needed. This is a new requirement and she was fairly senior in years so it was understandable. Next in line was a young gentleman with his father-in-law. His offer of proof of residence was not acceptable. The proof needs to be an account with your residential address listed, or a copy of a lease agreement in your name, if you are renting. His lease agreement had expired which meant it could not be used. And to complicate matters, his in-laws were living with them and had just moved here. Neither license could be renewed. They were moaning about the waste of time, but it was of their own doing. The theme was repeated down the line. Thankfully I had everything to hand and my transaction took less than 5 minutes.
Much like this hazelnut butter! All you need is a powerful blender. The possibilities are endless and you can turn this nut butter into that famous chocolate spread, or add some interesting spices for a twist. I have left it plain and used it to fill my shortbread biscuits for a great afternoon treat.

Love this recipe, Tandy. I really hear you about the renewal of car licenses and such like. The laws have changed, for the better hopefully. I recently renewed all of our SA passports and it really wasn’t to bad at all. We had our passports within two weeks.
Passport renewal is amazing. We have also never waited for that 🙂
I need to get more adventurous with nut butters.
Have a great Monday.
🙂 Mandy xo
They are so easy to make 🙂
I love hazelnuts, what a great idea to process into butter!
They are one of my favourites as well 🙂
I bet this hazelnut butter is delicious, they are one of my favorites.
I much prefer my own to commercial butters 🙂
Mmm, I do love nut butters, and hazelnut would have to be my favorite. Can’t wait to try this! 🙂
Please let me know when you do 🙂
Lovely recipe, Tandy. I would very much like a chocolate spread kinda hazelnut butter.
It is so easy to make 🙂
You know, I have been thinking about trying to eat (almost) exclusively local and one of my concerns was peanut butter. But of course there are local nuts that could substitute–thanks for the inspiration! I once accidentally made pecan butter trying to grind pecans in my coffee grinder for a recipe 🙂
That can happen so easily! The trick is to grind them with sugar if you are trying to make a flour like consistency 🙂
My pleasure Inger 🙂
nut butter sounds so easy! and yet i haven’t made any ever. that needs to change asap. love that you seasoned this one with coconut oil and honey for a bit more oomph (:
I tried to keep it as natural as possible 🙂
This is such a delightful treat, Tandy! Can’t wait to give it a try!
I am sure you will enjoy it Agness 🙂
Love hazelnuts, a hazel nut butter sounds amazing. And much cheaper then buy it int store. Easier to do all our own butters for sure.
much cheaper and you can add any flavouring you like 🙂
Ooohhh yum! I love the idea of a hazelnut butter. It sounds super yummy!
I am going to keep on with these butters Amy as they are so versatile 🙂
Now that’s quite a story you have to give just to re-register the car, a bit crazy but the nut butter sounds the business.
It is because everything is so corrupt here!
