Making all-natural peanut butter is so worthy,  the total expenses for raw materials is cheaper than buying small container of processed peanut butter that is high  in fructose and corn syrup.

To make creamy peanut butter, you need food processor to finely chop the peanuts. You can also use peanut butter machine which is easier.  If you will use food processor, make sure you will rest it every 5-7 minutes. Some food processor easily heat esp. if you are using food processor which is not heavy duty.

So to avoid breaking your food processor, off it after 5 minutes, rest it until heat lessen, and then operate it again.

 

What you need:

2 cups roasted peanuts

1 cup cane sugar or ½ cup maple syrup

1 tbsp. ground cinnamon

2 tbsp. peanut oil

 

  1. If you will use raw peanuts, roasting is easy. You don’t need oven to do this. You can use a pan or stove top flat grill in a low heat. The technique is covering it with foil to roast it easily.
  2. Using food processor, process peanuts in a pulse mode to chop the nuts. Then turn knob to 1 or 2. In 17-20 minutes, you will get creamy peanut butter.
  3. Transfer creamy peanut butter in a large bowl then add maple syrup, ground cinnamon and peanut oil. Mixing well.
  4. If you will use cane sugar, mix it  with peanuts while in food processor.
  5. 2 cups of roasted peanut yields to 16oz. jar.
