Basics: Homemade Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter

This is for everybody who is ridiculously obsessed with peanut butter. And let me start by saying that I cannot believe I haven’t made this sooner! I feel like a fool for ever buying organic peanut butter at the grocery store. (That sh*t is not cheap). And now I learn, that for 2$ /lb, you can scoop up natural peanuts from any bulk store and create your own organic, healthy, easy, and cheap peanut butter. Of course, if Β Kraft products are you’re normal go-to spread, (with the cute cuddly teddy bear on the label- what’s up with that anyway??), then this might take some getting used to. But I guarantee you’ll be feeling a lot better about spreading a spoonful of this on your toast.

Keep in mind that because it’s all natural peanut butter, it’ll keep for about 2 months, and should be stored inside your fridge. You can add some natural sweetness if you’re not used to the taste, like a tablespoon of honey for instance.

This literally took me 5 minutes. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of peanuts (shell off)
  • 20 ml vegetable oil (or: 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp)
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp honey
  • Optional: salt to taste
  • Optional: use peanut oil instead of vegetable

Directions:

Throw peanuts in blender. Pulse a few times on low, for about a minute until peanuts are in tiny pieces. Continue. (You’ll need a spatula to loosen the mixture on the sides of blender). Once peanuts are crushed, slowly add oil inside. Blend on medium until smooth. Pour inside airtight container and store inside fridge for up to 2 months.

Music:Β Not all homemade products have to be difficult or time consuming. The perfect song to fit this recipe is without a doubt by Two Door Cinema, “Something good can work out”. Enjoy this fun summer tune!
