You have read it right my friends, today I am going to show you a pretty simple recipe, that requires one ingredient, no fancy machinery and you can make it for peanuts. Haha. Yes I did. I am going to share my homemade peanut butter recipe !
Nut butter is very good for you, it’s super rich in healthy fats and is loaded with protein. Peanut butter just happens to be the easiest and cheapest one to make.
I always thought it required some heavy machinery or some kind of magic powers to turn peanuts into peanut butter. I was wrong.
You can turn any nuts you like into a spread. All you gotta do is, toast’em, grind them, and spread them.
I know what you’re thinking, no those don’t make butter. Moving on.
The toasting: Toasting your peanuts allows them to release all that awesome essential oil they have locked in. It’s like a waking up process. You’re essentially bringing them back to life.
The grinding: Now this is the best part, you get to see them transform, from nuts, to grounds, to paste, to crunchy butter, and then to smooth, if that is of course the way you roll.
It’s the best part because it gives you full control over how crunchy or smooth you want your peanut butter to be. It’s really awesome, anybody who owns a blender and peanuts should try it.
The process of turning nuts into butter is something that will stay engraved in your mind.
It’s way better than the one you get in store. Let’s just put it that way. The consistency is exactly the way you want it to be, the taste is so much better. It has to be since it is the freshest peanut butter you will find anywhere.
