Home Made Natural Peanut Butter

I made fresh Peanut Butter again today!

Bruce is a huge PB fan. We eat it often for breakfast, spreading it with jam or honey on toasted Ezekiel Brand Breads or English Muffins.

One day about a year ago, I realized that I was buying A LOT of natural Peanut Butter. I decided that day I could make it just as good myself, for less. Ever since, Peanut Butter Grinding has become part of our cooking repertoire.

Pecan Coconut Butter & Peanut Butter

It is so easy, there’s almost no excuse not to do it. Plus, it tastes great, saves us $, contains NO added oils, sugars, flavors or preservatives, and does not separate! Sometimes, I go exotic and do Pecan Butter or Almond Butter instead, just to mix it up  little. ;).

Okay ~ are you ready? Let’s Get Cooking!

Home Made Peanut Butter

Grinding Peanuts

*Ingredients for 12 oz 

1.5 cups of unsalted peanuts

1/4 tsp salt (omit if peanuts are salted)

~ a small electric food processor

* Method:

Place peanuts in food processor. Grind for about a minute. Scrape down sides with a spatula. Taste. Add more salt if needed. Grind one to two more minutes.

At first, the mixture is crumbly, then forms a ball, and then will become smooth. It will get warm!

Place in container, but leave uncovered until cool. Enjoy!

CHEERS, and HAPPY EATING

  1. I don’t know why but I would never have thought of making my own peanut butter. It does make sense and it looks delicious 🙂

    • Thanks, Petra! Grinding your own Peanut Butter is easy and rewarding. Once I tried it, I was hooked!

      It took me a few rounds of making it to ‘get the feel’ of how long to grind it, but once you ‘get it’, it’s a breeze!

      We hope yo give it a go. If you do, please check back in with us and let us know what you think! Cheers!
