Homemade Dry Roasted Peanut Butter!

Sunday, June 23, 2013


About 2 months ago I posted a recipe for Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter. It's still one of my all time favorite recipes (and so easy!), but being the peanut butter lover that I am, I needed to broaden my horizons.

You see, once you make homemade peanut butter, store bought peanut butter can never compare to this new found delicacy. Homemade peanut butter is in a league of its own. When the sole ingredient of this recipe is peanuts, the possibilities are endless.

After loyally sticking to Honey Roasted Peanut Butter for over 4 months, I started to think outside of the box. I started to get creative. I started to wonder what would happen if I used a different type of peanut as the base of my peanut butter.


Since it's Summer, my brother and I had time for quite a few experiments with tons of various types/brands of peanuts. Our fridge has been constantly stocked with a new type of peanut butter that is always calling my name.

I don't know why it took my so many months to try Dry Roasted Peanuts. My Dry Roasted Peanut Butter is now in a sealed container begging to be opened every time I open the fridge. Being the pushover I am, I let it lure me in.


So, do you have 5 minutes to spare? Don't make my mistakes. Try a different type of peanut butter.

Oh, so you need a reason to make this? No problem. This peanut butter is all natural. It has one ingredient, but you don't have to stir it or pour excess amounts of oil off the top like you would a normal natural peanut butter. It's also lower in calories than your average store bought peanut butter. Plus, this is peanut butter. Is it ever a chore to make and eat peanut butter? I didn't think so.


Dry Roasted Peanut Butter

Ingredients:

  • 1 16-64oz can of Planter's Dry Roasted Peanuts (Or any peanuts really!)



Directions:
  • Put the whole peanuts in the food processor. (No chopping or anything is required. Literally just throw them in.) 
  • Turn on the food processor. Let it grind and grind and grind. 
  • Keep Grinding. The peanuts go through various stages, unless you get a really heavy duty processor like I have!
  • You're done! Keep the peanut butter refrigerated in a sealed container, and it can last for over a month!

  3. Ooh, thanks for reminding me to try making my own peanut butter! I've been curious about it for awhile, amount & cost-wise. Next time I'm at the store I'm picking up some peanuts!
    Peanut butter is so good in cookies, and sometimes I even put in on my waffles in the morning :)

    1. Glad to remind you :) Homemade peanut butter is really really good! (and I'm not just saying that because I made it!) I buy the biggest thing of peanuts I can buy, and usually when I do that, it's very cost efficient!

  11. I have the tiniest food processor, the Cuisinart one that everyone has. I'm afraid it won't be able to handle the peanuts!

  13. I've never thought of actually using honey roasted peanuts to make peanut butter. But it makes sense doesn't it, since honey roasted peanuts are awesome on their own! They could only be more delicious in peanut butter form!

  14. Looks yummy! I don't think I've ever made just plain 'ol peanut butter... I've made chocolate cherry almond butter, & cranberry cashew butter. For some reason I usually just buy it... laziness, maybe? ;)
