Nut butters are a great source of healthy fats. Nuts can help maintain a good level of fat burning hormones as well as control appetite and cravings. Try this cheaper recipe for a clean nut butter (no added preserves, sugar, flavors or enhancers).

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups raw hazelnuts
Instructions
  1. Cook hazelnuts at 170 degrees Celsius for about 10 minutes until skin begins to crack and hazelnuts look slightly golden.
  2. Remove skin once hazel nuts are cooked.
  3. Using a soup blender, blend the hazelnuts into butter. The hazelnuts will first break down into smaller pieces and then into powder. Use a tablecloth to cover the blender and avoid wasting any flying bits.
  4. Continue blending until oil starts coming out of the hazelnuts and eventually butter starts forming. Scrape the sides of your bowl and blend until a fine gritty butter is formed.
