Take a look at the peanut butter you have in your cabinet right now. Does it contain more than 2 ingredients? Let me guess... Sugar? High-fructose corn syrup? Blegh. Try this super simple recipe instead!


Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups of regular peanuts (NOT dry-roasted)

  • Salt to taste

  • Optional: unflavored oil (ie: grapeseed, avocado, etc.)

Directions:

  • Toss peanuts in the food processor.

  • Add a sprinkle of salt.

  • Blend until peanuts are creamy.

  • Not getting creamy enough? Try adding a touch of oil until the right consistency is reached.

  • Ta daaa! You just made peanut butter.

  • Add some whole or crushed peanuts if you’re in a funky chunky mood.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Store your peanut butter upside-down in a tightly closed mason jar. When you store any natural PB, the oils will always float to the top. Keeping it upside-down makes the oil float to the bottom instead, so when you open it the top won’t be all oily. It's much easier and way less messy to stir & use it!

  • Keeps well for up to 2 weeks.

  • Store in a dry, cool place.
