I don’t know about you, but I go through peanut butter like crazy. I probably go through a jar a week (I save every jar and now have a bigger-than-I’d-like amount of peanut butter jars in my apartment). But now, I actually have a use for them: to store my homemade peanut butter!
I’ve been wanting to make my own for a while, but didn’t have a food processor (S.O. to my sister for getting me one!). So now I’m finally able to make my own peanut butter and am so excited to share the recipe with you!
I can honestly say after making my peanut butter for a few months now, I don’t ever see myself buying peanut butter again. I’m telling you, homemade peanut butter is SO GOOD. See for yourself. 😉
It’s really simple to make and you only need one ingredient: peanuts.
To make this zero-waste, buy peanuts in bulk at a grocery store near you that offers it! Remember to bring your own reusable bag or jar, of course.
Homemade Peanut Butter
- Food Processor
- 3 cups Peanuts
- 1 tsp Salt optional
- If peanuts aren't already roasted, roast them at 375 for about 5-7 minutes, until some are golden. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes.
- Put all of them in the food processor and add salt if desired.
- Blend until you get a creamy consistency. This will take about 5-10 minutes. It should become a grainy texture at first, and eventually turn creamy.
- Viola! Homemade zero-waste peanut butter! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
