Recipe Directions

Place the peanuts and salt in a food processor and process until the nuts are finely ground. Add the oil and continue processing until the peanut butter reaches your desired degree of smoothness, adding more oil if necessary. For chunky peanut butter, stir in 1/4 cup chopped peanuts. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator. (If you want to use a blender, I suggest doing only about 1/4 cup peanuts at a time so you don’t burn the motor out! :-o )

Optional: add 1/4 tsp cinnamon, some honey, or your favorite spices/flavorings in while you’re blending.

My boyfriend and I just made this and it's good! We added an extra tablesspoon of oil and It was a little plain so we had to add the raw honey :) Can't wait to have banana and peanut butter! Thanks for the recipe - I had no idea how EASY it was to make a nut butter!

I'm not sure which one I have, I actually bought it used and haven't given much attention to what type it is! Whatever kind it is it's pretty basic, just one button! If you have a Vitamix type blender you can use that as well, but I don't think a regular blender could handle it... And as far as I know that's how you make nut butters with any nut, only some nuts need more or less oil as you blend them.

Can you follow the same process with other nuts and seeds to make raw nut butter??I guess a food processor is a must. Which one do you have?

Just thought I would add that I have started using flax oil instead of peanut oil - I don't think it affects the taste much but I like it because I can get more Omega-3 and less saturated fat that way (not by much, but hey, it helps!).

I think the idea for most people should be to to avoid the alphatoxins that are found in peanuts (raw or not). I splruged and bought a bag of the raw jungle peanuts, that claim to be a wild strain that is (virtually) alphatoxin free. I have made many yummy things with them : spicy peanut sauce, peanut butter ice cream, choc peanut butter cups, soaked- they taste like boiled peanuts! (for all my southern americans)...I really loved peanut butter before I started researching alphatoxins - so I am happy to have this flavor back in my diet!

p.s. this does look delicious though Khass:)
