  • Summary

    This peanut butter recipe is so simple to make — all you need is a food processor and 15 minutes. Plus, you can get creative. We make our basic peanut butter crunchy. Sometimes though, we add almonds. And when we’re feeling bold, we make chocolate peanut butter. (It is seriously good). It’s best to start with raw peanuts, however, if you cannot find them, use roasted. Since they’re roasted you could skip roasting in the oven, but we actually do it anyway — it sort of brings them back to life. Regarding the oil — add as needed.If it seems dry, add a little oil — maybe a teaspoon at a time.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups (300 grams) unsalted shelled peanuts
    • 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 to 2 teaspoons honey
