Homemade salted vanilla honey peanut butter in a jar next to a spoon

Hi! Sorry I’ve been away for a few days. I’m on my way back to Chicago today after an absolutely wonderful vacation to Mexico with Tony. I’ll be bombarding you with pictures and updates on life lately, and yes Wellness Wednesdays are coming back. I’ve already got next week’s started and it’s gonna be a good one!

In the meantime, I wanted to pop in and bring you this recipe for some super easy peanut butter I made a few weeks ago because it is FABULOUS. I can’t tell you the amount of times I spread it on a banana in the mornings, or how it was spooned it directly into my mouth. There are no boundaries when it comes to my love for nut butters. NONE. I have a SERIOUS problem. I crave them quite possibly more than any dessert.

Since I go through jars of peanut butter fairly often, I find it much easier and much less expensive to just make my own and experiment with different flavors. All you need is a food processor to whip up a batch and the process is actually enjoyable because you’re able to control the flavor and texture.

A few things before we get started: I usually purchase peanuts from Trader Joe’s. I love the unsalted roasted peanuts; they’re still flavorful yet also allow you to control the salt content. Superb, right

Secondly, I love a super creamy, drippy peanut butter thus I’ll process mine for as long as possible (about 10 minutes or so). If it isn’t creamy enough to your liking, you can add a teaspoon or two of coconut oil. If you want chunky, fold in a few tablespoons of finely chopped peanuts once you’re all done processing.

Lastly, I store mine in a mason jar and do not refrigerate it. You can if you’d like, but I don’t find it necessary.

So, let’s get to it!

Peanuts in a food processor

First place your peanuts in your food processor and process for about 5 minutes or until the nuts begin to form a creamy paste. Add in vanilla bean, honey, salt and coconut oil; process again for 2-4 minutes.

At this point, the peanut butter should be pretty smooth. If it isn’t you can add additional coconut oil (I recommend 1-2 teaspoons). You should also taste the peanut butter to make sure the sweet and saltiness is spot on to your liking. Remember that if you add more honey, you’ll need to add more coconut oil as honey can make the peanut butter seize up a bit. Pour peanut butter into a mason jar, or another airtight container and seal tightly.

I recommend this peanut butter on multigrain seedy toast or spreading it on a banana. It’s also wonderful in oatmeal or in yogurt. Enjoy! Xoxo.
