HomeMade PB makes my Fingers Happy…

A recent post from Simply Scratch got my foodie brain spinning. Laurie from Simply Scratch is Simply Amazing in all ways and she’s been very helpful in the start of my own foodie blog =) I love her style and her photos are incredible. This Pb recipe isn’t exactly Laurie’s but was definitely inspired by it.  Thanks for the idea Laurie!

I had Scott’s Best bud Ara A.K.A- “The Peanut Butter Connoisseur”, A.K.A “The man I have to hide my Costco sized jars of Jif from”, try this and I got a “Mmmmmmm, now that’s good peanut butter” out of him.

This is really actually very easy and fun to do and…. PS…It’s all natural.  

Ingredients:

2 Cups Salted Peanuts- Shelled

2 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Organic Agave Nectar- Light

2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil- I’ve seen recipes call for peanut oil, veggie oil, grape seed oil- really any oil out there. I choose EVOO because it’s super healthy and I already had it. =)

 
In a food processor or blender, combine: peanuts, Agave …

 and oil.

Blend, process, blend and process.

Blend and process until it’s reached your desired creaminess.

You may find it helpful to pause in between to scrape the sides and start the blending processing process again.

You can always SLOWLY add a little more oil and blend again if you’re looking for a creamier consistency. (I did not- but it’s always an option)

My pb came out almost like a cookie dough. It spreads nicely.

ENJOY!!!

    This is a great share, I often make my own peanut butter, will try your recipe. I did a 50-50 blend of hazel nuts and peanuts, we just love it.

    What a great idea!! We are getting ready to open a bed and breakfast on a very historic property in Virginia. I was the birthplace of James Madison. So I am on the lookout for some really good ideas! Thanks for the great post!
