How to make Peanut Butter

How to make Peanut Butter


4 cups peanuts (roasted and salted)
3 TBS peanut oil

Add 3 cups of the peanuts into the food processor and process for 2 minutes.

It'll take that long for the nuts to break down and become oily.

When it is almost smooth, add the peanut oil and process again for a minute. Then add the last cup of nuts and process until you have reached the desired chunkiness or smoothness you want. 

I don't want to overstate it but - this is the best peanut butter you'll ever eat.  Make peanut butter cookies, make a sandwich or grab a spoon - your family will flip.  This makes approximately 3 cups of peanut butter.  The recipe easily can be halved.

For the following additions, it just comes down to your own taste buds.  These are some tasty additions to try below.

1 or 2 TBS honey

Process instructions above.

Chocolate Peanut Butter  - add the following:
1 or 2 TBS cocoa powder, Nutella or chocolate chips (to taste)
1 or 2 TBS powdered sugar (to taste)
