I’ve been wanting to try out making homemade peanut butter, since I got my Vitamix for Christmas. I think nut butters just taste amazing and it’s crazy how much you can do with them. Who would have ever known you could use a nut butter, instead of flour?
Now, I always try to eat everything organic that needs to be, but this recipe, I was a little more lax on. The reason being that they had a 1lb. container of dry roasted peanuts (no oils), at the store for a $1.99. Sometimes you just kind of have to weigh out the options. Plus, if I went to find raw organic peanuts, I would have spent a fortune and would have been better off just buying healthy organic peanut butter at the store. I would be spending more money. So, that’s that story….
1 cup of dry roasted peanuts
1 tbs. of unsweetened cocoa powder
2-3 tbs. of almond or raw milk
1/2 tsp. of pure vanilla extract (optional)
honey or pure maple syrup to taste (optional)
Blend the peanuts. Blend in the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy!
I can’t wait to try out almond butter too! Stay tooned!
