Equipment

Ingredients

Regular Peanut Butter

  • 1 cup roasted unsalted peanuts

Honey Vanilla Peanut Butter

  • 1 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey

Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter

  • 1 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1-2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Chocolate Peanut Butter

  • 1 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 2 tbsp of cocoa powder

Instructions

  • Start with 1 cup of roasted unsalted peanuts in the food processor.
  • Blend until the peanuts breakdown into peanut butter. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Honey Vanilla Peanut Butter

  • Stir in 1 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tbsp honey into the finished peanut butter. Do not blend. I find that the blending the honey in can cause the peanut butter to seize up and break. Instead gently stir it in.

Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter

  • Once your peanut butter has formed, blend in 1-2 tbsp of ground cinnamon. Then gently stir in half a cup of raisins. Stir in additional honey or maple syrup if desired.

Chocolate Peanut Butter

  • Blend in up to 2 tbsp of cocoa powder into the finished peanut butter. Stir in chocolate chips if you desire.

Notes

1 cup of peanuts makes a between 1/2 cup to just under 1 cup peanut butter.
