Have you ever tried your hand at homemade peanut butter?
If not – now’s the time to try. No fear. Just grinding until you arrive at smooth spreadable peanuty love.
It’s easy and spoonfully delicious!
We are always looking for ways to eat healthier without sacrificing flavor or nutrition and this peanut butter is a bonafide hit. There are no additives, no corn syrup, no hydrogenated oils, no unpronounceable extras.
All the stuff that’s fit to eat and nothing more!
Here’s what you’ll need:
A food processor
2-4 cups salted dry roasted peanuts (or the peanuts of your choosing)
Optional: 1 tbsp (or more to taste) raw honey
Using the sharp blade in your food processor, pour in 2-4 cups of peanuts and grind on high for 5-7 minutes, until desired consistency acquired.
Be patient. The natural oil in the peanuts will soon turn the whole peanuts from solids, to a mealy crumb, to lovely smooth peanut butter.
Add raw honey (optional) and continue grinding until well incorporated.
Or omit. Either way, you’ll end up with a tasty treat.

Store in airtight container (< I use fun squatty wide-mouth jars) in darkened pantry.
We love this stuff.
Spread on fruit, bread, waffles, crackers or a smidge on a finger.
Each time I open the jar, I wonder why I didn’t make homemade peanut butter sooner.
Don’t be me.
Don’t wait any longer!
Get to grinding!
