Homemade Sugarless Peanut Butter

Homemade Peanut Butter

Is peanut butter an acquired taste?I remember trying it as a child and not liking it at all.Maybe it was too new a texture and taste back then but now I am obsessed with it.I love my homemade sugarless peanut butter with apples and bananas, adding it to my oat bowl and baking with it.

Have you tried homemade peanut butter with chocolate?Though I am a recent fan of strawberries dipped in chocolate but there is no comparison(in my book) with the awesome combination that is peanut butter and chocolate.

I feel miffed at myself for missing out on this amazing creation for 25 years of my life though if I hadn’t ,I cant imagine the number of jars of these I would have emptied!and the cost!! and the sugar!! and the preservatives!!ugghhh

That’s the price we pay of buying packaged food.

  7. Scrape the sides and keep grinding.
  8. The Paste Phase
  9. In the next 3-5 minutes the peanuts will turn from a powder to clumpy paste.This is when they start releasing their oil.
  10. The Butter Phase
  11. As you keep processing the peanuts at around 5-8 minutes the peanuts will turn into a silky butter.You can stop now or continue to process for 2 more minuets if you prefer a very very smooth peanut butter.
Notes
Homemade peanut butter is thinner than the store bought version because it doesn't contain the artificial thickning agents.
It is also less sweet than the bottled versions.
