Homemade hazelnut butter is sometimes forgotten in favour of its immensely popular chocolaty cousin. Without the chocolate, you get a magnificent, speckled-brown nut butter that is still opulent and decadent but much healthier and lower in sugar. The term "hazelnut" refers to any nut that comes from a species of the genus Corylus, particularly the nuts from the species Corylus avellana. Depending on the species, they may also be referred to as "cobnuts" or "filberts."

Hazelnuts are used in baking and sweets, confectionery to make praline, and in items like chocolate bars, Nutella, chocolate truffles, and Frangelico liqueur. They are also combined with chocolate to make chocolate truffles. Pressed from hazelnuts, hazelnut oil has a powerful flavour and is used in cooking. The two countries that produce the most hazelnuts worldwide are Turkey and Italy.

Although hazelnuts have a little more fat than almonds or peanuts, they are nevertheless just as healthy. In comparison to pistachios, hazelnuts have less saturated fat per serving, and the majority of their fat is heart-healthy unsaturated fat. Once you have mastered this fundamental recipe, experiment by adding vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, or chopped dark or white chocolate.
