Hazelnut Butter. If you are a nut lover then you are going to love this! Rich, sexy and delicious this nut butter will make you very happy indeed. Eat alone or mix it with Raw Cacao and honey and you’ve just made healthy Nutella in seconds. Hazelnuts, also known as filberts, are a sweet-flavored nut that can be enjoyed in baked recipes, as snacks and used in lots of raw recipes. Hazelnuts contain a good array of vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber and healthy fats. They add a nutty and rich flavor to baked desserts, cereals and the nut butter can be spread on toast, mixed in ice cream, smoothies and used as a dip.
Hazelnuts contains phytochemicals, including proanthocyanidins, quercetin and kaempherol. These proanthocyanidins belong to a group called the flavonoids. Flavonoids may support brain health, improve circulation and reduce symptoms associated with allergies.
Hazelnuts contain heart-healthy fats that can protect heart health. Specifically, they are high in healthy polyunsaturated and mononunsaturated fats and low in unhealthier unsaturated fats. Hazelnuts are a good source of oleic acid. Oleic acid can help to lower levels of bad cholesterol, LDL, and can raise levels of good cholesterol, HDL, in the body.
Hazelnuts have a high amount of vitamin E as well as B vitamins, including folate. Vitamin E is important in maintaining healthy skin, hair and nails. The B vitamins are important in proper cell and energy metabolism. Hazelnuts are also a rich source of potassium, calcium and magnesium. These minerals provide many health benefits, including regulating a healthy blood pressure. Unlike unhealthy snacks such as chips and refined products, hazelnuts can provide the body with a rich supply of nutrients for good health.
Traditionally hazelnuts are used in lots of sweet desserts and confectionary.
