I used both a food processor and a blender for this recipe.My blender could not handle the hazelnuts at the beginning and then I switched to the blender to make the spread smoother. If you don't mind a chunkier spread you can make it entirely in the food processor. Or if your blender is powerful enough to handle it, you can make it entirely in the blender.
1 1/2 cups hazelnuts
2 tbsp roasted hazelnut oil
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
3 tbsp cocoa powdered, unsweetened or more to taste
2 1/2 tbsp evaporated cane juice (sugar)
1 tsp GF vanilla extract
1 tsp agave nectar or honey (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process for five minutes, scraping the sides as needed. Transfer to a blender to obtain a smoother paste. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking. Transfer to a jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator.
