Between my husband Kevin, me, and of course our dog Waffles, we go through a lot of peanut butter in our house — and we expect that George will love it as much as we do. Rather than having to go to the shop to keep on replacing it, we are going to make our own. Homemade Peanut Butter is a delicious snack that’s way more healthful for you. Making it at home is so quick you’ll never want to buy this yummy treat at the store again. And with only three ingredients, it couldn’t be easier. I love this Homemade Peanut Butter recipe because you use regular store-bought roasted salted peanuts so it has an extra punch of flavor from the already roasted and seasoned nuts. If you prefer less salt, you can buy unsalted peanuts and then salt your peanut butter to taste. Also, this nut butter recipe works using any nuts, so go nuts (pun intended).

Taste And Consistency Of Homemade Peanut Butter Adding oil and honey (or agave) while blending the peanuts is so important. It will seem very loose at the time, but all that changes once you refrigerate the mix. After refrigerating it, you should get the same taste and consistency you’d expect from store-bought peanut butter. It’ll be smooth, sticky, and delicious. If you prefer a chunky style peanut butter, reserve a portion of your peanuts to throw-in at the end and pulse the food processor until you’ve reached a consistency you like.
