Wait. Stop. I am so proud.
I made that beautiful jar of peanut butter all on my own.
Which is great cause I’ve been spending a buck too many on it lately. We go through a lot of peanut butter. I like it on my breakfast/mid-day toast/a spoonful at night. Jake is a PB&J guy through and through. The habit was getting expensive. And this was born from a bag of dry roasted peanuts from Trader Joe’s for $1.99. So drippy. So delicious. So proud.
And it was the easiest thing EVER. Like easier than hummus. Easier than grilled cheese. Yes I’m serious. Also it’s incredible. The most delicious roasted peanut flavor. Do you have 5 minutes? All you have to do is press a button and watch the magic, I promise. And for all of you who have been making your own peanut butter already, you’re awesome.
From this. YES- JUST THIS ^ ^ (ok, and salt) …
BAM. To this. It does require a food processor. I have this one and use it almost daily. There are SO MANY uses for food processors from chopping vegetables, making granola bars, mixing up muffin batter, and, now, making homemade nut butters.
So excited. I’m already dreaming up the flavors I want to try next. You know the fun $15 jars you see in Whole Foods? I’m gonna try and recreate those. Cinnamon Maca Rainbow Sprinkle Swirl here I come. Will report back.
- 2 cups dry roasted (unsalted) peanuts
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Blend infood processor for five minutes. Peanut butter will go from crumbly, to a ball, to smooth, and finally peanut buttery goodness.
- Store in the fridge up to 3 weeks (sooner is better than later)
Peanut butter for President 👍🏼
