Description

3 ingredients and 5 minutes are all you need to make this lip-smackin’ cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter at home. Grab a spoon.


Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups honey roasted peanuts*
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. First, make sure you have a quality food processor/blender. See my suggestions above.
  2. In the food processor, pulse the peanuts until the nuts go from coarsely chopped to finely ground. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Keep pulsing until the peanuts resemble a thick and relatively smooth peanut butter. This will take a couple straight minutes of processing.* Add the raisins and cinnamon and pulse gently a few times until mixed.
  3. Taste the peanut butter. Do you want more cinnamon? Add more cinnamon. Want more raisins? Add more.
  4. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. It won’t last that long!

Notes

  1. Peanuts: Instead of honey roasted peanuts, try using dry-roasted plain peanuts and adding 1 Tablespoon of honey. If your peanuts are unsalted, you’ll likely have to add salt to taste.
  2. Oil: You can add 1 Tablespoon of a neutral tasting oil (canola oil, peanut oil) during the blending process if your nuts aren’t processing. Usually honey roasted peanuts have a little extra oil in their coating which makes them easy to process. I never add oil.
  3. Food Processor: Make sure you are using a quality food processor. I own and love this onethis one, and here’s my Vitamix you can use, too.
