This recipe is one of those I have made so many times that it’s become just like second nature. It works with all kinds of nuts, like cashews, almonds, and even sunflower seeds! Although I’ve never tried it with pecans, so if you do… Let me know how it turns out!
The ingredient amounts for this peanut butter recipe are mostly eyeballed, which means you really have to put it together as you go. But don’t worry, it’s very forgiving. It’s also very much about your preference. Some people like silky smooth peanut butter, and some like theirs more chunky.
Check out how I put this peanut butter together with only 3 simple ingredients!
Then, I puréed it for about 2 minutes. You’ll start to see the peanuts try and clump together and get pasty.
I puréed it for about 1 more minute and slowly began to stream in about 1 tsp of honey and 1 tbsp of coconut oil. You can pretty much use any type of unflavored or mild flavored oil here.
For about 2-3 more minutes I puréed it on low after I added in the oil and the honey. At this point you’ll start to see it resemble peanut butter. I scraped down the sides and blended it for about 30-60 seconds more.
And bam, you’ve got peanut butter! Make sure to store in an air tight container and keep refrigerated. Fresh peanut butter will spoil if left out.
