Recipe: Coconut Almond Hazelnut Butter (Using a Vitamix)

Fresh almond hazelnut coconut butter made using a vitamix

 

Ingredients:

Two cups of raw almonds
One cup of raw hazelnuts
One third of a cup of dried unsweetened coconut flakes
Pinch of sea salt
One teaspoon raw local honey

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Keeping the almonds and the hazelnuts separated, place them on a baking sheet ensuring that they are not overcrowded. Place them in the oven and roast for approximately 10-15 minutes (I took my hazelnuts out a few minutes before the almonds). At the same time spread the dried coconut onto a baking sheet and place in the oven for only 3-4 minutes (It will toast fast so keep an eye on it!). Once the hazelnuts are complete the skins must be removed. Wrap them in a tea cloth and rub them so that the skin comes off as much as possible. Place the almonds, hazelnuts and coconut into your Vitamix (or a food processor or other high speed blender). Add a pinch of salt and then begin to blend. Start your Vitamix at a 1 and slowly increase to a 10. Use the tamper to scrape down the edges as needed. It will take a minute or two for the nuts to start releasing their oils. Once the desired consistency is reached, stop blending. Add in the honey and stir in with a spoon. Transfer to a jar for storage in the fridge (the best way is to use a spatula to scrape all of the nut butter out).

Enjoy on your favorite fruits, toast, etc!
