Roasted Peanut Butter

Type of meal: Condiment

We had some shelled peanuts in the cupboards that have been there for quite a while. We don’t use peanuts in a lot of cooking, which doesn’t make sense since they are one of the cheapest nuts, and they are quite nice. I decided though since these ones have been there so long to have a go at turning them into peanut butter.

I’ve noted previously that most nuts you can just process into a buttery form, but after doing some reading it sounded like roasting peanuts gives them a stronger flavour as well as helping to release the oils to make the butter.

So here it is, roast peanut butter, and it is very cheap and easy to make. I think I’ll be making it in the future instead of buying it.

  1. 1 cup raw peanuts (shelled)
  2. 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  3. 1 tbsp peanut oil
  4. 1 tsp maple syrup
  1. Preheat the ocean to 180°C
  2. Put a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray and spread the peanuts on it
  3. Roast the peanuts in the oven for about 10 minutes
  4. Take the peanuts out of the oven and while hot place into a food processor
  5. Process the peanuts for about 1 minute then stop and scrape the sides down. It should be fairly course still.
  6. Process for another minute or until it doesn't sound like it's doing anything anymore then stop and scrape the sides down. At this point it should be starting to get quite smooth.
  7. Process for one more minute or until it doesn't sound like it's doing anything anymore. Stop and scrape the sides down. It should be quite thick peanut butter now. Give it a taste and if you like it, then you can stop here. I quite enjoy it like this, but I also like it a little sweeter and saltier.
  8. Add the salt, peanut oil and maple syrup
  9. Process for another minute or until it sounds like the food processor is no longer doing anything.
  10. Enjoy!
