homemade peanut butter

For my birthday this year I got a food processor from Dyl and I can’t stop experimenting! We’ve been trying new things left and right. We continue to be amazed by what it can do. My favorite so far: peanut butter. Even if I never make anything else in my food processor, this makes it worth it. It takes a matter of minutes and makes you feel like a magician!IMG_2806

 

Prep time: 10 minutes
Servings: makes 1 cup

Ingredients:

2 cups peanuts

Make it your own: Create a flavored peanut butter to go with whatever you’re eating! Add some cinnamon, honey or even chocolate! Use your imagination!

Directions:

  1. Set up the food processor with the chopping blade and put the peanuts in the food processor.
  2. Pulse the food processor 5-10 times to chop the peanuts finely.
  3. Process on low for about 5 minutes until peanuts become creamy and smooth, stopping to scrape sides as necessary.
  4. Add sugar and salt a little bit at a time, pulsing to incorporate. Remember you can always add more, but you can’t take it out. During this step taste every time you add a little until it is how you like it. You may end up adding more or less then what I recommended!
  5.   Enjoy on sandwiches, dessert, fruit, or by the spoonful!

Tip: Make a few batches at once and save it in mason jars for the rest of the week. Also, you can use this process with almost any kind of nut – try making almond butter, cashew butter, or even sunflower butter!FullSizeRender
