Most of you who have been following this blog for a while know about my obsession with peanut butter. I literally eat it every single day, in a multitude of different applications. Needless to say, I go through a lot of peanut butter.
I have recently discovered PB2 and if you aren’t familiar with it, its a powdered form of peanut butter that has like 80% less fat in it than the regular stuff. All you have to do is add a small amount of water to it and it becomes the consistency of peanut butter and you can use it exactly the same way. I also just add the powder to protein or milk shakes to get the peanut butter flavor without all the fat and calories.
A few days back, I was at the grocery store and roasted unsalted peanuts were on sale. I decided to buy some and give making my own peanut butter a go.
This process was so easy. It took me less than ten minutes to make and I used nothing but peanuts, salt, and a small amount of coconut oil. You can omit the oil all together, but I really like the flavor that the coconut oil gave the butter. Peanuts and coconut oil are extremely high in fat – but this is all “good” fat which we should try to consume a small amount of each day.

2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts

In a food processor, add in all ingredients and blend until smooth. This took me about five minutes, but it could take you a little longer/shorter depending on your food processor.
