Ingredients

  • 1 cup shelled, unsalted, and dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon extra light olive oil

Instructions

  • Put peanuts into a blender and pulse a few times until coarsely chopped. If you want to make chunky peanut butter, measure out 1/4 cup chopped peanuts and set aside.
  • Run your blender continuously for 30-60s. Stop the blender, open the lid, and scrape down the sides with a spoon. At this point, your peanut butter will resemble couscous.
  • Run your blender continuously for 30-60s. Stop the blender, open the lid, and scrape down the sides with a spoon. At this point, your peanut butter will start clumping together.
  • Run your blender continuously for 30-60s. Stop the blender, open the lid, and scrape down the sides with a spoon. At this point, your peanut butter will look thick and glossy.
  • Add in any extras like sweetener, salt, oils, cocoa powder, etc. Run your blender continuously for 1-2 minutes, or until the peanut butter is smooth and spreadable.

Notes

I made this peanut butter using a magic bullet which I wouldn't recommend. While it can be done, it's easiest to do this in a real blender or food processor.
