B’s Easy Home-made Peanut Butter

So I finally tried to make home-made creamy peanut butter.  It was awesome!  The creamy texture was incomparable to the store-bought peanut butter.  B had to add it to her recipe blog index!  It was that good and that easy!  Not to mention, obviously a healthier alternative to store-bought peanut butter which contains preservatives.

First step:

ImageBlend ingredients together for around 5-10 minutes depending on the power of your food processor.

Final result is a creamy-to-die-for-texture:

It was simply delectable.  I really loved the texture of it and was amazed how it turned out.  I was skeptical as I saw it blending as it started off grainy.  I couldn’t help but wonder how this texture would be achieved.  HAHA!  I’ve read that peanuts release their own oils after being blended for a long time – I guess seeing is believing!

B’s Easy Home-made Peanut Butter

Makes:  1 small bowl

Ingredients:

  • 90g Peanuts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Method:

  1. Blend peanuts and oil in a food processor.
  2. After a few minutes scrape down the extras to ensure even consistency.
  3. Blend for about 5-10 minutes depending on the power of your machine!

Note:  You can store this for a few days without refrigeration.  However, if you are in a hot country I would eat it up fast! LOL.  Remember that unlike store-bought peanut butter this has no preservatives so it doesn’t last as long.  It taste so good that it anyways won’t last so long in your kitchen!

B is exiting her kitchen for the day! More in B’s Kitchen to come.

    O M G. I want to make my own peanut butter. Do you think coconut oil will be too overpowering in this recipe? And what kind of peanuts did you use- roasted, unsalted or? Thanks for sharing this recipe and I look forward to seeing some vegetarian/vegan recipes!

      I think coconut oil might be a bit strong. People use peanut oil or hemp oil as it has an added nutty flavour. I like olive oil! You can even omit the oil completely as peanuts give out their natural oil eventually after all that grinding!
      I used slightly salted peanuts! Not roasted though!
      Thanks for dropping by 🙂
