Let me show you how peanut butter is done.
In less than 4 minutes.
With 1 ingredient.
If you’ve been reading for awhile, you already know that I have a slight obsession with peanut butter.
I tried to see how long I could go without eating it a few weeks ago. I lasted less than 4 hours. Who was I kidding?
For all my recipes, I typically use Jif Creamy. I grew up on Jif. It’s my very favorite. Recently, however, I’ve been making my own peanut butter.
It is SO good. So simple and so much cheaper by volume than storebought. In less than 4 minutes, and with only ONE ingredient, you can have homemade peanut butter free of added oil, salt, sugar, and preservatives. The recipe is so simple, I feel bad typing it out for you…
Makes about 1 cup of peanut butter. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
- 1.5 cups honey roasted peanuts (you may also used plain roasted peanuts, salted or unsalted according to your taste)
- Add peanuts in the bowl of a food processor with a blade. Process until the nuts go from coursely chopped to finely ground. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed.
- Process again until the peanuts resemble a thick and relatively smooth peanut butter.
* You may add 1-2 tablespoons of a neutral tasting oil (canola oil, peanut oil) during the blending process to make the peanut butter is extra creamy. This depends on your taste preference and/or if you are concerned with calories.
* If you have a food processor like mine, this whole process will only take about 4 minutes.

I love making my Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Granola with my homemade peanut butter.
