Ingredients
  • 2 cups roasted peanuts
  • pinch sea salt (if nuts are unsalted)
Instructions
  1. Add peanuts and a big pinch of sea salt (if using) to high speed food processor*. Blend on high for about 10 minutes. During this time, the nut butter will become powdery, then for a thick mixture, and then become a smooth, creamy butter.
  2. Scoop peanut butter into a small, sealed jar. Nut butter will last for up to 3 months at room temperature or refrigerated for up to 6 months. I prefer refrigerating my homemade nut butter as it prevents the natural separation which simply requires stirring the oils back into the nut butter.
Notes
*You can also use a high-quality blender—like a Vitamix or Blentec. Most blenders will not distribute mixture well while blender so in general, you are better off using a food processor.
