Making your very own peanut butter is not that difficult all you need is fifteen minutes and other than this less time you will require some ingredients, out of these fifteen minutes that you are going to commit almost ten minutes you are going to spend roasting the peanuts, roast peanuts and once you are done with roasting them, take your food processor out and then add roasted peanuts to it after adding the peanuts to the processor press the power button on and keep blending until from a crumbly texture it turns to a smooth paste and that shiney and smooth paste is what we call peanut butter, yes it’s that simple.
This world is full of creative people and that’s the reason everything comes in a variety, there are a variety of peanut butter as well, peanut butter is normally four to five different flavors, if you wish to make almond peanut butter then just add in almonds to the recipe which is mentioned above, once you have your peanut butter ready add almonds and blend again, that’s all your almond peanut butter gets ready within minutes and in the end you can salt a little bit of honey and salt.
What about chocolate flavor? the difference between almond and chocolate flavor peanut butter is of sugar and cocoa, yes you heard me right, make the usual peanut butter and then as always add honey and salt, after adding honey and salt blend again once done with blending add sugar (the powdered one) and then cocoa after adding all the ingredients blend for one last time and you’re good to go.
- Take a pan (square shaped), preheat your oven and then in the pan spread some peanuts and then roast them for about three to five minutes, after three minutes take the pan out ( do not forget to wear oven gloves) and shake the pan and then place it in the oven again and roast for another five minutes.
- It’s time for you to take the peanuts out of your oven and then place them in the food processor, once done with blending add honey and salt to it and blend again.
- Tada, your homemade peanut butter is ready, now if you wish to add some flavor then feel free too, my personal favorite is the chocolate flavor.
- Once you are done making the regular peanut butter add cocoa and powdered sugar to the peanut butter and then blend it. That’s all with the chocolate peanut butter.
