I have been wanting to try my hand at making my own Homemade Peanut Butter for ages. It’s one of those things I’ve pinned multiple times and just have never got around to. So I figured it would be perfect for my summer, I Tried a Pin, series. I love how simple it was and how many options you have… I’m share those details in a second.
I had pinned a great Homemade Peanut Butter tutorial from Averie Cooks ages ago. You won’t believe how simple this is.
I made a small batch. I took 8 ounces of lightly salted peanuts and put them into a food processor. I don’t have a large processor, just a small one that fits on top of my old blender.
Put your lid on and let it whirl!
Here’s what it looked like after 10 seconds…
It had turned into a course meal of peanuts.
I started it back up and 30 seconds later I checked and we had this…
The peanuts were definitely breaking down and the oil in the peanuts were dispersing making a moist peanut meal (almost looks like graham cracker pie crust).
Another 30 seconds and we had perfection!
Beautiful… creamy… delicious… homemade peanut butter… in less than 2 minutes folks!
It’s delicious too! I’m a huge peanut butter fan. I love it. Love it on apples and bananas. I have a peanut butter banana smoothie that I make many times a week… love peanut butter on a spoon… love it!
And here’s some fun options you can do… add some chocolate (oh yes!)… you could add some cinnamon… some vanilla… whatever flavors you love with peanut butter. You also can make it with honey roasted peanuts for a delicious sweet peanut butter.
You can make your own custom flavors… yep!
So would I recommend it? Yep!
Would I make it again… you bet!
I stored mine in a mason jar and put it in the fridge.
