Homemade Peanut Butter

Quick Post: I had to make this – I just couldn’t help it. It’s so much more rich and flavorful than store bought peanut butter and it’s worth the little effort it takes to make. Tomorrow I’ll post the kids new favorite chocolate peanut butter spread. They couldn’t get enough of it! Thanks for reading, enjoy:)
Homemade Peanut Butter – adapted from A Homemade Kitchen
  • 1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 to 2 TBSP honey
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (optional)

Place nuts in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. With lid on, pulse the peanuts until they become a smooth and shiny butter, about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. If it seems your peanuts aren’t turning into a paste, slowly add the oil until incorporated and smooth. If peanuts turn into a paste easily, omit the oil. Taste, and adjust seasonings to your preference.
