We are making peanut butter today!

All by ourselves.

And you need all of two things:
1) Peanuts
2) A food processor

I made peanut butter for the first time in Berlin earlier this year when I had a baking day with Erin from Texanerin Baking.

I was absolutely amazed as the food processor whizzed and whizzed and turned her peanuts into a spread.

I couldn’t believe how easy it was to make peanut butter! And it was so delicious, we all stood around eating it straight out of the processor with spoons.

Erin and I made these healthy peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough bites using our peanut butter that day.

I loved them and wanted to make them again at home and share them with you.

But I’m a little lazy. So I used the stuff out of the jar. And it was no good. The cookie bites baked up way too oily.

So I had to just deal and make my own peanut butter at home. And I’ve never looked back. It’s so much better than the stuff in the jar!

Let’s get started.

  • Ingredients:
  • Peanuts, roasted and skinless
  • You can make as little or as much peanut butter as you like! I normally just whizz up 165g (6 oz), which gives me a little over ½ cup of peanut butter.
  1. Put your peanuts in a food processor and turn it on.
  2. It will go through a few stages, from a crumble, to a ball, until it finally turns into a smooth paste. The whole process will take about 5 minutes.
  3. Enjoy!
