How to make homemade peanut butter
Peanuts are a great source of protein and healthy monounsaturated fats. Did you know protein makes you feel fuller for longer and is also essential for repairing and building muscles!?
Peanut butter is a great snack, added into smoothies and even dressings and marinades. You won’t believe how much more creamy and tasty your own homemade peanut butter is until you make it.
Warning: it’s addictive!
What do you need?
- 250g peanuts
- Pinch of salt
- High powered food processor or strong blender. Check out the top 5 food processors and what to look for when buying here.
What type of peanuts?
Simply use plain unroasted and unsalted peanuts.
Roasting the peanuts before can give your peanut butter a real nutty flavoursome taste, but if you can’t wait, having them un-roasted is just as yummy!
How do you make it?
Simply blend your peanuts in your food processor or blender.
This is where patience comes in! Blending the peanuts can take up to 10 minutes as the nuts first turn into a dry mixture and you think you’ve done something wrong! You haven’t.
With a little persistence and scraping down the mixture every few minutes, the peanuts will start to turn into a creamy smooth texture.
How to store?
Spoon your creamy peanut butter into a jar and store for up to a month!
