Peanut Butter Recipe

Home Made Peanut Butter is a Healthy Treat and takes very little time to make

This Peanut Butter Recipe is very easy to make and takes only a few minutes, but the flavor is much better than store purchased peanut butter and you can use organic peanuts if you like.

 

Peanut Butter Recipe

2 ½ cups roasted, shelled peanuts

1 ¼ tablespoons of peanut oil or olive oil

½ teaspoons of Sea salt

Place the peanuts in a food processor and blend until fine.

Add the salt and oil

Blend until smooth

For crunchy peanut butter, add a teaspoon or two of chopped peanuts and continue to blend for about 30 seconds.

If you want Honey roasted peanut butter, you can replace ¼ of the oil with honey.

Place the peanut butter in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. It will remain fresh for up to two months.

If you have children this is a nice project to get them involved in. They will love making their own peanut butter and if they are old enough, it is a natural lead in to having them help you make peanut butter cookies.

 Chefs Note: I use Olive oil as a personal choice but you can use any oil that you are comfortable with. I also roast my peanuts because that is a very important health step in the process.

If you are roasting your own peanuts, The American Peanut Council suggests roasting peanuts at 295 degrees for 14 minutes to kill any dangerous pathogens.

 Lets compare:
