Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe
Homemade peanut butter takes about 10 minutes to make and is creamy, healthy and you know exactly what you are putting in it.
- 3 cups (24oz) of shelled peanuts (your choice: honey roasted, roasted or un-roasted, salted or unsalted)
- Put the 3 cups of peanuts in the bowl of your food processor or blender.
- Turn the blender on and let the peanuts break down, scraping the sides if necessary. Continue to blend the peanut butter until you begin to see a very smooth texture (you will go through stages as you make the peanut butter: 1. crunchy, 2. paste, 3. thick paste, 4. ball of peanut butter, 5. smooth peanut butter).
- Taste the peanut butter and add salt to taste.
You can add 1 teaspoon of peanut oil or vegetable oil if you think your peanut butter needs it but I found it is best without it. You will have a pretty runny peanut butter at first but once you put it in the refrigerator overnight it will thicken up. A few optional additions to peanut butter: Honey, Sugar, Caramel, Chocolate
