Making your own nut butter couldn’t be easier. If you have a food processor, you can have your own fresh, homemade peanut butter in no time. I began my nut butter journey not too long ago while on a candida cleanse. I was allowed cashews on the cleanse and began making my own cashew butter. I’ve been making my own nut butter ever since. Not only does homemade nut butter taste terrific, it is often a fraction of the cost.
I live in Europe and peanut butter can be found here, but it’s not a typical food product. I’m also a little leery of the ingredients found in store-bought, processed food and prefer to make my own. Then I know exactly what’s going into the final product.
Two Easy Steps to Get Started
1.If you begin with already roasted peanuts, most of the work is already done for you. You can use raw peanuts, but I prefer the taste of roasted peanuts. All you need is 2 cups of roasted peanuts. This shows just one cup so…two of these… 😉
2. Add the peanuts to the food processor and press start. That’s it.
Here’s what the peanuts look like after 5 minutes.
Here’s the butter after 10 minutes.
And, now after 20 minutes.
Depending on your preference, you can process them as long as you like. I like it a little smoother so I’ll process the peanuts about 20 minutes to get that smooth consistency I like. If you want a little chunkier butter, stop a little sooner. Just taste it as it goes and stop where you like.
Here’s a printable version:
- 2 cups of roasted peanuts (preferably organic) You can find organic roasted peanuts here.
- Salt to taste if using unsalted peanuts
- Add peanuts to food processor and start. Process the peanuts for 15-20 minutes depending on desired consistency.
If you give this a try, I’d love to hear how it worked out!
