Honey Peanut Butter

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with peanut butter all my life. This one I love and it’s stayed a love! Great for traditional PB&Js, mixing into yogurt, and even using in savory peanut sauces. I enjoyed some this morning on whole wheat toast with some farm fresh berries and raw honey.

  • 3 cups roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 2-3 tbsp honey (to taste)
  • 2-3 tbsp canola oil (or any other neutral oil you might like to use, but I’ve found canola does best)
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon (optional)
  1. Add the peanuts and cinnamon (if using) to a food processor, and process until fine crumbs. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  2. Add in your honey while your processor is running.
  3. Once your honey is incorporated, add in your oil as needed to get the peanut butter as smooth as you like. Remember: the peanuts are full of oil themselves that will come out as you process it, so you might need less than you think.
  4. Store in an airtight jar in a cool spot in your kitchen.
  5. Slather on toast, mix it into plain yogurt, add it to a smoothie, or use it in an Asian style peanut sauce! Get creative with your peanut butter! This should be safe to share with your canine friends, but remember to double check with your veterinarian before sharing human food with your furry friends.
