Homemade Peanut Butter

This 3 ingredient peanut butter recipe is truly simple and easy to make. It turns out rich and creamy peanut butter, which simply melts in the mouth! You start making it at home and I bet you’ll never look back at store bought peanut butter.

Peanut butter recipe is probably the easiest, fastest thing you could ever make. Couple of ingredients, a food processor and less than 10 minutes. After roasting the peanut, remove the skin and throw peanuts into the food processor. Run the processor and watch as the peanuts turn into crumbs, then a thick paste, and finally smooth, shiny peanut butter. Voila you get a ridiculously delicious peanut butter. It’s almost magical!

Peanut butter is one of the ultimate comfort foods! The good thing about making peanut butter at home is that you can tweak the recipe by adding or removing the ingredient as per your preference like – sweetner, salt and oil. These are optional ingredients in peanut butter. You can make peanut butter with just one ingredient i.e. peanut which is the main ingredient in making peanut butter.

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter

INGREDIENTS USED TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER

This recipe uses only three ingredients.
● Peanut
● Brown sugar
● Oil

Though sweetner and oil is optional, we have used it for better taste and texture. It yields shiny, smooth, creamy and spreadable peanut butter. You can also add a pinch of salt. Brown sugar can be substituted with honey or maple syrup.

SOME IMPORTANT TIPS AND TRICKS TO FOLLOW WHILE MAKING PEANUT BUTTER

● If you are making crunchy peanut butter, add ½ to ⅓ cup of the roasted peanuts onto the food processor. Pulse 5 to 6 times, or until the peanuts are coarsely chopped. Transfer them to a bowl and reserve for later.
● Preferably use raw shelled peanut, roast them freshly and use them only after removing the skin.
● Roast the peanuts on medium heat and not more than 5 minutes.
● Roast the peanuts only until light browned and smell nutty. Do not burn them. It will completely spoil the taste and colour of the peanut butter
● Stir the peanuts frequently while roasting to prevent from burning and even roasting.
● You can use honey or maple syrup instead of brown sugar.
● Start the processor on low and work your way up to medium, then high. This reduces wear and tear on the motor, and blends everything better.
● Do not pulse the processor for too long. To prevent overheating your machine, process in short intervals of about 30 seconds.
● Press ‘stop’ and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula midway through processing. This makes sure that anything that gets stuck on the edges of the blender actually gets incorporated
● At the final stage add little oil for a shiny, smooth, creamy and spreadable consistency.
