Hi, my name is Jennifer, and I am a peanut butter junkie.
If I was alone on a desert island and could only bring one food?
Stressed-out comfort food?
Favorite thing to eat with chocolate?
I think you get the idea!
I like all-natural, no sugar or stuff-added peanut butter and I’ve tried all variety of brands, organic, and not. The one thing that I can’t get over is how expensive plain ole peanut butter can be. I can really go through the stuff and it just never lasts long enough!
In a recent out-of-peanut-butter-crisis, I decided to try and make my own. The slightly astonishing thing is that I had no directions and I didn’t try to find a recipe. And it worked! It worked so well, I’ve already eaten it all and made another batch. Nom!
It’s super easy – 16 oz of roasted, salted peanuts in the variety of your choice. Toss that into your food processor (it’s a must, sorry if you don’t have one!), Add about 1 tbs vegetable oil. I used corn oil, but I’m sure peanut oil would be even more awesome.
Process for about three minutes or until smooth. Move to a bowl and refrigerate.
Eat! Really, that’s it!
Next time, I think I’ll try roasting my own peanuts…
