A creamy, tasty peanut butter made in your own kitchen with only natural ingredients! You no longer have to worry about spending your hard-earned money on those fancy flavored jars of peanut butter!
Hi hi. Good morning! I’M BACK to a somewhat normal routine and kitchen set up – you have no idea how grateful I’ve become for internet after living so long without it. I feel spoiled now. The bottom line is….don’t take anything for granted! Once we have couches, I’ll be reminded of this again.
How was your weekend? We did a lot of organizing and I built my Wayfair desk – it took me about 4-5 hours but I’m so proud that I did it myself (well, Ed helped a little). I wanted to prove that I could handle tools and directions. More action photos to come once I have my office completely organized but major accomplishment.
Let me tell you – building a desk requires a lot of fuel. Mostly carbs, since those are the fast acting sources for our body. Carbs coated in peanut butter did the trick.
So, about that peanut butter recipe..
Errr..it’s one of those recipes that’s so good I want to keep it to myself. Well, I thought that for 2.5 seconds but then I realized that I really like you guys a lot, and if I were to share it with ANYONE, it would be ya’ll. Linking up with Deborah and Sarah for Meatless Monday
So, to make it, you’ll need a good food processor.
Since I received and figured out how to use my food processor, I have had boatloads of fun making my own things that I would normally buy – like hummus, peanut butter, and cookie dough. My how to make creamy hummus post is actually one of my most popular posts to date, and there’s no arguing with the finished product.
Similarly, no arguing with this peanut butter. It’s drippy, it’s tasty, it’s addicting – it’s basically everything you’d ever want out of a peanut butter that you can make at home.
Because not only is it fun and accomplishing to make your own things, but it’s a simple way to save money and have complete control of your ingredients and the amounts, amiright?
With only five ingredients, this recipe is definitely going to be repeated quite often in our new kitchen. I have so many more ideas for flavors that I’ll have to try out. I love ya Wild Friends, but I spend far too much $$ on your precious peanut butta.
The best part about this peanut buter is that you don’t have to dirty any bowls. You just mix errrrything into the food processor, your new best friend, and process for about 3 minutes on high. I stopped a few times in between to scrape some peanut butter off the sides.
Don’t be alarmed if after about a minute, your peanuts form into a large ball. This is completely normal. Break it up and keep processing and then it will magically get smoother and creamier.
It really is magic how it just transforms right in front of your eyes.
With my appetite steadily increasing with marathon training, don’t expect to ever find me without a personal tub of peanut butter since I put it on just about everything.
I’m not kidding. There’s a jar in my purse or lunch bag at all times.
So, after you make this, promise me that you’ll spend less money buying “natural” peanut butter because this is ridiculously EASY and QUICK.
And, since we’re in the food and health realm – we like sharing skills and making things in our own kitchens, right?
- 3 cups unsalted peanuts
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp honey
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp sea salt
Process peanuts in food processor for about 3 minutes on high, stopping a few times in between to scrape off the sides.
Add in vanilla, honey, cinnamon, and sea salt and process for 30 more seconds.
Devour and add to everything!
Depending on how fast you go through it, it’s fine to store room temperature. If you’re like me and go through it pretty quickly, it’s actually preferable to store at room temperature. While I love my peanut butter drippy, you can easily thicken it up by putting it in the fridge – totally your preference!
If you make it, don’t forget to tag me in your creations so I can see it! Enjoy the rest of your week!
