Homemade Natural Peanut Butter

Who knew that making your own peanut butter is so easy & fun! I am so excited that I figured this out because I am addicted to PB! You only need 1 ingredient....PEANUTS!

16 oz. Dry Roasted Peanuts (unsalted) 
A high powered blender or food processor 

So all you do to have nice creamy peanut butter is dump the peanuts into your blender. (we used a Ninja Master Prep) Start blending up the nuts, they will go through some stages and this process can take around 12-20 minutes depending on the power of your blender...but keep blending... and blending ...and blending! Eventually the peanuts will start to release oil. If it starts to stick to the sides of the blender, just stop and scrape it off. Once the oil is starting to release you will notice that the sides of your blender are probably getting a little warm, at this point the peanuts should really be taking on the form of peanut butter.Keep blending until your butter is a texture of your liking. I like to blend mine a little longer because I like my peanut butter really creamy and fluffy! 

For some fun you can add these fun ingredients for a jazzed up peanut butter:

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (Chocolate Peanut Butter....YUMMY!!)

Honey (Honey Roasted Peanut Butter)

Salt (Enhanced Flavor Peanut Butter)

*Also this process works for any kind of nut butter your would like to make!!
