How to Make Your Own Natural Peanut Butter

making natural peanut butter

I saw a statistic that said the average American eats three pounds of peanut butter per year (or something like that.) Well, I must eat a pound of peanut butter each week!

I eat every type of natural peanut butter I can find, but not only do I like to try new brands, I like to make my own natural peanut butter at home!

There’s no better way to ensure quality, healthfulness, and freshness than by making it yourself. And best of all, it’s very simple.

Here’s what you’ll need for homemade natural peanut butter:

  • Raw peanuts
  • An oven
  • A blender

And here’s what to do:

1. Spread raw peanuts on baking tray.

2. Place in oven, pre-heated to 350 degrees.

3. Roast for 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them, since you don’t want them to burn.

4. Allow to cool.

5. Put roasted peanuts in blender or food processor.

6. Blend until smooth and creamy. Probably 3-5 minutes.

Note: Be patient. It takes a long time to blend them into actual peanut butter. At first, the PB will look dry. Blend it a while longer and then the natural oils start to come out and you’ll have creamy PB.

7. Eat.

Want more flavor?

Spices and seasonings are optional.

You could add salt, honey, cinnamon, chipotle, etc. The options are nearly unlimited!

Or make it easy on yourself and blend up some honey roasted peanuts!

 

How would you flavor your very own peanut butter?
