Homemade Peanut Butter

By Wednesday, May 08, 2013 , ,


It’s a lot of effort compared to buying a jar, but it’s so worth it, and once you’ve tried it, you’ll never go back to shop bought peanut butter again. The taste is so much stronger and the texture is a lot runnier too, perfect for oatmeal!
Preheat your oven to 150C and  put your raw peanuts on a flat baking tray and place in the oven. Every 10 minutes, shake the tray to ensure the peanuts cook evenly, and after 15-20 minutes or once they start to slightly brown, remove from the oven and allow the peanuts to cool on the tray. Place the peanuts into the food processor and process them. It should start to make a flour after a few minutes, then stop the food processor and use a spatula to scrape down the excess stuck to the sides. Continue to process the peanuts for another 10 minutes until it resembles peanut butter. You can add a little salt to bring out the flavour if you wish.

Try to stop yourself eating it all by the spoonful, it's addictive!

    1. It really depends on the size of your jar! If you use an old 300g peanut butter jar, use 300g of peanuts, likewise, a 450g jar will need 450g peanuts to be filled etc etc

  5. I tried it over the weekend. But mine turned out creamy like ice cream instead of runny like yours And the colour is totally different from yours. And I used a blender instead of a food processor cause I don't have one :(
