Make your creamy & healthy homemade peanut butter. Quick easy recipe for homemade peanut butter that requires just one ingredient: peanuts.
Peanut butter has always been adults’ and kids’ favorite. After all, when it comes to nuts, we all agree that it is an all-time favorite snack. And so, goes for these nuts’ butter. I got introduced to peanut butter when I moved to Dubai. Back then, peanut butter was not a famous choice in Lebanon. And I kid you not, it has become one of my favorite go-to snacks or even dinner. However, a store-bought jar comes with some add-ons like sugar and salt.
My little daughter has like her mamma, a sweet tooth. Therefore, a store-bought jar with added sugar has always attracted her attention. This is how my story with this quick easy recipe started. If she likes peanut butter, then I will let her feed her hunger, healthily by making it this sugar-free.
When I first prepared peanut butter at home, I tried different options: added salt, sugar, and honey, with maple syrup. None of these options satisfied me. Each option had another flavor prevailing the peanut flavor. Hence, I finally decided to explore this recipe made with only one ingredient: Peanuts.
When people read or hear the word “Butter”, their perception of healthy food does not click.
However, peanut butter comes along with good taste, many health benefits.
Eating peanut butter moderately supports losing weight. However, eating it in excess affects weight maintenance and may result in adding some kilos to your weight.
Bottom line: your food processor. Using a food processor may take up to 10 minutes. This will put a heavy load on your food processor’s engine to cool down. But do not worry. Give your food processor a 20-seconds break every minute. It will reward you with a smooth spreadable texture at the end.
Benefit from these breaks to scrape down the side of your processor’s bowl, allowing any crunches to be well processed.
Bonus tip: do not overload the bowl with peanuts. I recommend you load it at half-capacity.
You will need roasted peanuts. If your peanuts are not roasted, spread 250g of peanuts in a tray covered with parchment paper and roast them in the oven for 15 minutes at 250C.
Once roasted, peel the skin and transfer the peanut to the bowl of a food processor.
Turn the food processor for a minute, scrape down the sides, and process the peanuts again.
Repeat until you get the desired consistency.
If you are looking for a crunchy texture, remove 3 tbsp of chopped nuts and set them aside. Add them once you reach the desired consistency and mix them along.
Meals to include Peanut Butter:
The list is too long. But I will list below some of my favorites:
– With apple slices as an afternoon snack
– Overnight oats for a delicious breakfast
– Healthy protein shakes
