Homemade Peanut Butter is one of the easiest recipes I have ever done. Homemade Peanut Butter only takes 5 minutes too! I have a recipe for Sunflower Butter on my blog already, but this is my first time making homemade peanut butter. My husband is a huge peanut butter addict so he loved this homemade peanut butter. The best part of this homemade peanut butter? It only takes 1 ingredient!
This can homemade peanut butter can barely be called a recipe. Can it get any easier? Recently, I wrote a post called Peter Pan Exposed. You should have seen all the nasty ingredients in that peanut butter! I bought these peanuts out of the bulk bin at Sprouts and they were on sale for $1.99/lb. So this homemade peanut butter is so much cheaper than buying processed stuff! Healthier too. You can add in whatever flavor combinations you want to this homemade peanut butter. I personally think it might be fabulous with a little pure maple syrup.
Homemade Peanut Butter
These first couple pictures are of the peanut butter in the process of getting to the butter point. At first, it will look like this below, more of a peanut powder.
Then like this.
And the final product…
- 2 cups peanuts (Raw, roasted, salted etc. Really any would work well.)
- Put the peanuts in a food processor and start to pulse, stopping every 30 seconds to allow the peanuts to release their oils. You will start to see it get moist.
As soon as the homemade peanut butter gets as moist as you would like it to be, store it in a container and keep in the fridge. Should last a couple of weeks. That's it! Enjoy!
