PEANUT BUTTER




We've been buying peanut butter since............... I can't even remember. The kids take peanut butter sandwiches to school like every other day.  So......me being me.....................I decided to make my own. Well.............are you thinking why go through the hassle of making your own when you just buy it off the shelf??Well........true if you just eat it once in awhile. But when households like us eat it everyday...................it feels good go know that there are no preservatives and wayyyyyyy less sugar.


The result was pretty good. Very close to the store bought ones in terms of taste. just think of all the preservatives and sugar etc you can actually cut down.

Add it to your smoothies, eat it with a fruit bowl or just dig in and eat it plain.............they are full of protein. Take a look at my Almond Butter Recipe while your here. Nut butters are all the rage at the moment and a good way to add some taste to the bla stuff :D

INGREDIENTS:
natural unsalted peanuts - 2 cups
sea salt - 1 tsp
coconut oil - 3 tbsp
sugar - 1/2 tsp (or can even skip)


PROCESS:
  • Slightly dry roast the peanuts till fragrant. Let it cool and then place them in a tea towel and gently massage them for all the skin to come off. Reserve the peanuts and discard the skin.
  • If you like bits of peanuts in your peanut butter (Crunchy) then reserve about 1/3 cup of the peanuts and add the rest of it into your blender or food processor.
  • Whizz until it becomes pastey. Slowly add in the coconut oil at regular intervals to ease the blending process.
  • In the end just add the the sea salt and the reserved peanuts and give it one last whizz.
  • Store in a clean jar and refrigerate for a longer shelf life.
