I am absolutely obsessed with peanut butter at the moment. I am usually an almond butter kind of girl and I hadn’t had peanut butter for years until a few months ago and I was only used to the kind in a jar with all the added crappy ingredients.
Seeing as I make my own almond butter, I thought, why not make my own peanut butter too? It is the exact same process.
People are often amazed that nut butters are this simple to make. You literally just throw everything in and blend it until the desired consistency. Do you like it super smooth? Just blend it for longer.
You can use any nuts you want, or combine them to make a mix. If you are allergic to nuts, but you can eat seeds, then sunflower seed butter works really well too.
– Roasted and unsalted peanuts (any amount)
1) Put the peanuts in a food processor and process until smooth. For really smooth and creamy peanut butter, it takes around 7 minutes.
Done. That really is it. I kept mine in the fridge and it is usually gone in a couple of days – I just can’t stay away from it.
You can even add flavours into it if you like. Cinnamon and vanilla work really well.
