Recipe: Ombar Hazelnut Spread

 

Prep time: 5 mins

Cook time: 15 mins

Makes 2 cups


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups hazelnuts
  • Coconut sugar to taste
  • 70g Ombar Coco Mylk, melted
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 50ml plant-based milk of choice - we recommend coconut!
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Big pinch salt

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 190°C. Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and roast for 12 to 15 minutes, until fragrant.
  • Carefully put the hot hazelnuts in a mason jar with the lid on and shake. The papery skins will fall right off. Remove the skinless nuts and put them in a food processor or a high-powered blender, then re-shake the jar until the rest of the skins come off the remaining nuts.
  • Blend the hazelnuts until they turn into a creamy hazelnut butter - this should take about 5 minutes. 
  • Add the melted chocolate, coconut oil, plant milk, vanilla, salt and sugar to taste. Blend for another minute until all the ingredients are combined and appear smooth.
  • Transfer to a large mason jar. Store in the refrigerator for several weeks.
