Homemade Peanut Butter

I’ve been wanting to try out this homemade recipe since I first saw the recipe on Averie Cooks.

 It looked so easy and delicious, and I always have a jar of some kind of nut butter to scoop a spoonful (or two) to get me through the hunger pains of the afternoon until dinner time………….turns out it is just as easy as Averie describes in her post, maybe easier!

In fact, after tasting the first batch today, I doubled the ingredients and kept blending to make a

BIG batch!

One or two changes I made in my version:

I added in 1 Tbs. of Olive Oil, can’t taste it but I think it made the peanuts easier to blend.

I also added a Tbs. of grated fresh ginger root, 1 Tbs. of Cinnamon and 3 Tbs. of honey.  I used salted ‘un-roasted’ peanuts as well.

Healthy Benefits of Peanuts:

  • These nuts are good source of dietary protein compose fine quality amino acids that are essential for growth and development.
  • Research studies have shown that peanuts contain high concentrations of poly-phenolic antioxidants, primarily in p-coumaric acid, which is believed to reduce the risk of stomach cancer by reducing the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines.
  • Peanuts are excellent source of resveratrol, another polyphenol antioxidant, which has been found to have protective function against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and viral/fungal infections.Click here for even more peanut nutritional information

    • Next batches I make up, I will try even more varieties including cocoa, ginger snap cookies, and definitely want to try some spicy spreads………..maybe a little soy sauce or chili oil in one?

      Yea, it turned out to be so easy like you said. I’ve made nut butters before and this was by far the easiest to churn up. And tasting it now with my own tweeks to the flavor, I’m certain I like it better than almond or cashew. And I like the price better of course. I added the ginger which you taste right off but if you didn’t know it was ginger, you probably wouldn’t know. Then the peanut flavor and cinnamon take over. I’m going to use it this week to make a Thai sauce and I know it will be perfect for that. So glad you posted about it. I probably would have just kept buying the jars. 🙂

      You’re right, it’s perfect for a gift. And something that most people love too. I liked being able to adjust the flavors while it was still churning. When I’ve added flavors to store bought, it’s hard to mix it in completely. Hope you try it, let us know what your own changes are if you do! Thanks!
