Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw peanuts
  • ¼ teaspoons sea salt

Instructions

  • Use a food processor. It works so much more easily that a blender.
  • Pour your peanuts into the processor. I use a Ninja Food Processor and it does the job quickly. I am sure there are many out there that would work great.
  • First you will get chunky crumbs.
  • Then it will start to stick together and to the sides of the processor. Turn off the processor and use a spatula to scrape down the sides.
  • Process for another 15 seconds and scrap again. Do this about 3-4 times.
  • Now process a little longer in between when you scrap down the sides and the peanuts will start to heat up and release it's oil which helps make it become a peanut butter.
  • In no time it will be creamy. Add the salt and cream some more.
  • Scoop into a jar with a tight fitting lid and eat whenever you want.

Notes

Peanut Butter will keep for months in the refrigerator but believe me it be be gone way before that.
If you want to double this recipe it is not problem. Just double the ingredients and follow the above directions.
To add maple syrup to this recipe just add ¼ cup at the end of the creaming process and process some more until all is well combined.
