All Natural Homemade Peanut Butter

If you’ve not made it before, get ready to be amazed as it's not as difficult as you may think! It does take a little bit more effort than just buying it at a shop, but you know what? It’s soo worth it.

Fun Fact – Although the nutrition composition of a peanut is similar to a tree nut, it's technically a legume!

Feel free to play around with the baking time.  The longer you bake, the richer the nut butter and the more pronounced the peanut flavour (yum!).  But keep in mind if you overcook the nuts, it will have a bitter and burnt taste so at around the 15 minute mark I’d suggest keeping an eye on them.  I find 17 minutes is the ideal time for my oven and taste buds.

Top tip - When you’re blending and think it’s done... don’t stop and blend some more.   This same recipe will also work for all nuts but the roasting time may vary.

It’s also important to note that peanut butter can be one of those foods that's very easy to overeat, especially when you’re eating it with a spoon straight out of the jar.  So if this is something you struggle with, check out my good friend Lyndi Cohen's Keep it Real Program, I think you'll love it.

Note: for allergies & intolerances, this nut butter is naturally free from dairy, lactose, eggs, additives, gluten and wheat.  It's also vegan and free from sugar.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups peanuts, raw or roasted, skinless or skin on
  • optional: pinch sea salt
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 180˚C. 2. If raw peanuts, roast for 15 - 20 mins. (note: the longer you roast, the richer the nut butter but keep in mind if you overcook the nuts, it will have a bitter and burnt taste).2. Let cool. If using skinless peanuts, skip to step 3. Otherwise, remove skin by placing peanuts in a tea towel and rub vigorously to loosen. Then separate peanuts from skin by using a colander or a draining spoon. 3. Transfer skinless peanuts to a blender and blend until you reach the right consistency. This can take a while so be patient. It may seem ready but don't be tricked, keep blending until it is quite runny. Optional, add sea salt and blend to mix through.note: 1 cup of peanuts will yield 1/2 cup nut butter
