- 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.
