Silky smooth and rich homemade hazelnut butter studded with chocolate sandwich cookie pieces, this 2-ingredient nut butter is easy to make and impressive. Naturally vegan, it comes together in less than 20 minutes and is great for snacking on all day long.

There is nothing I love more at the moment than homemade nut butter (and creations with said nut butter) as it is so easy and there are so many flavour combinations to explore! My recent obsession is definitely due to my new blender (I have a Vitamix which I am in love with and is really powerful) but I have always loved nut butter.

Over the last few years, I have worked on a few yoga retreats with some inspiring friends and fellow plant-based foodies/trained chefs and one thing that always makes guests happy is the array of homemade nut butters. From rich and chocolatey to warmingly spiced or the salty classics, it brings people together! Every time I returned from the yoga retreats; I would always feel so inspired to make my own but then the spark would fade. I always felt they were never as good, as smooth or as creamy without the high-powered blender or food processor. That said, you can definitely make your own in other blenders/processors but just be patient and keep going until it is super smooth and creamy.

So, back to this Hazelnut Bourbon Biscuit Butter. It continues on from my Cookies and Creamy Nut Butter aka Oreo Cashew Butter but this time I have changed the nut and the biscuit and made something equally as magical. And you only need 2 ingredients (or 3 if you add a pinch of salt):

  • Hazelnuts: I prefer to use the skin-off ones, but if you can only find ones with the skin-on, I’d say to give them a good rub between tea towels after they have roasted to remove the tough outer shell/skin as it will make the butter less smooth and a bit gritty. Roasting the nuts really adds to the depth of flavour and the smell is wonderful!
  • Bourbon chocolate sandwich cookies: you don’t need to buy the classic Bourbon branded biscuit as most supermarkets sell their own-brand variety that are still accidentally vegan and much cheaper. And they taste the same! A few of these cookies turns this already delicious hazelnut butter into the most addictive thing.
  • Salt: a little pinch really emphasises the nutty sweetness and the cacao flavours.

As a side note, don’t worry if your cookies start to melt into the nut butter if it is warmed up while in the blender, this is fine – it will taste just as good. I like to pulse the nut butter a few times to end up with chunks of cookie as well as small pieces blended into the Hazelnut Bourbon Biscuit Butter.
