Forget about buying chemical-laced peanut butter from the store. And forget about spending big bucks to buy fancy organic peanut butter from health food stores made with no nasties. With this homemade peanut butter recipe, you’re armed with all you need to make wonderfully sweet, salty and creamy peanut butter at home in just 2 minutes. Once you try homemade peanut butter, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start making your own sooner!
Thankfully for all the smoothie-hating people who’ve received high-powered blenders as gifts (me included!) you can do a lot more than blend fruit with them. I developed this recipe because I got a Magic Bullet NutriBullet for Christmas a couple of years ago and I’m just not into smoothies. I’ve gotta have a little texture in my breakfast, you know? So instead of just letting the super powerful blender sit in its box gathering dust, I started looking up different ways to use it.
I’ve made my own homemade peanut butter for years. This is the recipe I started off using. But know I know how easy it is to make homemade peanut butter with a NutriBullet, I’m never going back. When you make peanut butter in the blender or with a food processor, you have to keep stopping to make sure the motor doesn’t overheat. And sometimes the blades just aren’t strong enough so you have to keep adding more oil until you’re left with a mix that’s 50% peanuts and 50% oil. Not something you really want to be spreading on banana slices for a healthy snack.
The Magic Bullet NutriBullet is so powerful you can make smooth, creamy and healthy peanut butter in less than 1 minute. That’s less hassle and time than it would be to buy a jar online! Better yet, because the blades and motor are so powerful, you only need a tiny bit of oil to make super smooth and creamy homemade peanut butter. I included a tiny bit of salt and honey in the recipe, because I love the depth of flavour they add. But you can totally omit them if you want to keep it simple.
I want to point out that this isn’t a sponsored post. I haven’t received any money or products from NutriBullet. I’m posting this because I’m genuinely so amazed at how quick and easy it is to make homemade peanut butter with this magical blender. As soon as I discovered it, I just had to share my new-found knowledge with everyone who would listen. And since roaming the streets and telling people to make homemade peanut butter seemed a bit weird, I thought I’d best blog about it instead.
- 1 cup peanuts
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
Add all the ingredients into a large NutriBullet container. Screw on the extractor blade attachment and blend for 5 seconds, until a dough-like mixture has formed which sticks to the walls of the container. At this point, the blades will not be touching the peanut mix and you'll hear a change in sound.
Remove the container and scrape the peanut dough from the sides. Screw the lid back on, place the container onto the base and blend for about 10 seconds, until you've got totally smooth peanut butter.
Transfer the peanut butter to a sterilised jar and store at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 2 months.
