Yield: about 1¼ cups
Ingredients
  • 2 c. dry roasted peanuts (salted or unsalted)
  • 2 tbsp. honey or 1 tbsp. agave
  • pinch kosher sea salt (optional)
Directions
  1. Place the peanuts in a food processor. Turn the food processor on and let it run for about 4 minutes. The peanuts will go from crumbs (pictured above) to a ball, then to a creamy peanut butter.
  2. Turn off the food processor, add the honey (or agave) and salt (if using unsalted I'd suggest tasting the peanut butter and adding salt to taste). Continue to process for 1-2 minutes until combined.
  3. Place in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
Notes
-You can use honey roasted peanuts, just simply omit or reduce the honey or agave. Skip the pinch of salt completely.
-If you have raw peanuts, simply bake them for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, let them cool before adding them to your food processor.
-If you find your peanut butter is too thick, you can add a ½ tsp. of coconut oil. However, only do this after the 5-6 minutes. You'll be surprised by the texture after the full amount of time. Please note that a quality food processor makes all of the difference!
-For chunky peanut butter, simply chop up an additional ¼ cup of dry roasted peanuts and fold them in before storing the peanut butter.
-I store my peanut butter in the fridge because I don't want it to go rancid, especially during the summer. I simply remove it from the fridge 20 minutes before I plan on using it.
