Perfect Homemade Peanut Butter

So I made peanut butter before, wait let me rephrase that… I attempted to make peanut butter before! I used raw, unroasted peanuts and it was a middle disaster. Now maybe some of you like pb made with raw peanuts but it definitely wasn’t for me.  It had a completely different flavor to what I consider pb and I was very disappointed to say the least. I was a bit disheartened and I put my homemade pb urges aside for the time being. That is until I stumbled upon a recipe for pb the other day and it used dry roasted peanuts. That’s all I needed to hear and I went out and bought a bag of dry roasted peanuts as soon as I could.

It could not be simpler to make and because the peanuts are roasted they let out there natural oils quick quickly which meant it was done in a jiffy. I sweetened it slightly with honey just to counteract the deep smokiness of the peanuts and I was in pb heaven! It was the best peanut butter I have ever had and I am now officially converted to the homemade stuff. 🙂 Seriously if you love pb as much as I do (Eating it by the spoonful… ahem!) then you have to try this for the sake of your taste buds if anything!

Perfect Homemade Peanut Butter (Makes 1 jar)

300g dry roasted peanuts

honey or other sweetener, to taste

  • Pop the peanuts in a food processor and whizz until it forms a smooth butter, about 5mins. It will go through phases such as finely chopped nuts, then powder, then it will start sticking together then it will turn into a smooth butter.
  • Scrap down the bowl as needed and add in honey or other sweetener to your taste at the end then when finished transfer to a jar (or your mouth!) and use however your heart desires 🙂
