Homemade Natural Honey Peanut Butter

Conventional processed peanut butter contains low grade vegetable oils, high-fructose corn syrup and many harmful preservatives.  That is why I created my own organic homemade peanut butter to share with all of you peanut butter lovers.  

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups raw peanuts ( for roasted peanuts, no oil is needed) 
1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil or (olive oil)
1 1/2 tsp natural or raw honey 
1/4 tsp sea salt 
OPTION: almonds or cashews 
Note:  Roasted and Spanish peanuts make the peanut butter darker in color*


DIRECTIONS:

1) Process raw or roasted peanuts in a food processor or blender.  Grind until nuts are finely chopped.

2) Scrape the bottom of the bowl to blend all the peanuts.

3) Drizzle in the peanut oil to the peanut crumbs.

4) Add honey, salt and blend (more or less depending on individual taste).

*For a chunkier blend, add 1/2 cup of well chopped nuts at the end. 


All natural peanut butter should be stored in the refrigerator as it does not have any preservatives to prevent spoilage.  It will keep for up to 2 months.
