Homemade peanut butter always has to be runny. Right? Nope! Here is a delicious recipe on how to make perfect fluffy peanut butter right in the comfort of your own home. All you need is a few ingredients and a powerful food processor.
The result is a fluffy and slightly sweet peanut butter. It is awesome and inexpensive! I have a few tips to tell you on how to save money when making your own peanut butter at home.
Fluffy Honey Peanut Butter
- 1 lb. unsalted peanuts (3 cups)
- 2 Tbl. natural honey **I used honey that was made locally. You can definitely tell a difference! It has a more natural and smooth sweetness to it.**
- 1/2 tsp. salt
Take your peanuts and toast them in the oven. This is optional, I just like to have a more roasted flavor in my nut butter. (Yes, I know they are already roasted, I just like them extra toasty 😉 )
Money Saving Tip: Instead of going to the produce section for your nuts, look in the middle aisle where all the snack mixes are. Instead of paying $5 for a pound of peanuts, I bought this container for around $2.25. It is the same thing, just cheaper!
In a food processor, grind the nuts until it looks like a dry clump (2nd picture). Add the honey and salt. Pulse until it is smooth. It will take a little bit for the nuts to release their oils. Be sure to not over whip it.
The result: fluffy honey peanut butter!
It is that simple!
Place in an air-tight container and refrigerate!
I put it on my oats in the morning. Oh so good.
These oats have chia seeds, banana, and cinnamon in addition to the peanut butter. It was de-licous!
