  1. Add coconut oil and hazelnuts to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Blend on a low speed for 15 seconds and then increase to a high speed for 35 seconds (until blended time reads 50 seconds).
  2. Stir mixture towards center of jar, then secure lid.
  3. Blend on a medium speed for 50 seconds. Stir, secure lid, and repeat this cycle two more times.
  4. Add cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar to jar and secure lid. Blend on a medium speed for 50 seconds.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. Bring to room temperature before serving. 

To toast hazelnuts:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread hazelnuts on shallow baking sheet and toast in oven until skins darken, approximately 8-10 minutes. To ensure even toasting, stir the hazelnuts after 4-5 minutes in oven, then finish toasting.
  3. Wrap the cooled hazelnuts in a clean kitchen towel and rub towel back and forth to remove most of the hazelnut skins.

Note: If making in Twister jar, decrease ingredients by half.

    It sounds like you could really benefit from a Twister Jar. I’ve never had to add any oil to any of the nut butters I’ve made (dry roasted almonds are one of my favorite).

  • Blendtec

    Use speed 1 for low, speed 9 for high and speed 5 for medium. :) Yes, you should be able to continuously blend if using the Twister jar. You will also want to decrease the recipe if using the Twister jar. Happy blending!

    I use just the herb that has been blended to a powder. No bitter after taste. Also much less expensive and you can grow it yourself.

    That is not entirely the case. Coconut sugar keeps the blood sugar from spiking like it does with regular sugar. It is also less processed.

    I followed step by step with my brand new twister jar…and now my blender is smoking with Over Temperature on the display!
