Homemade Peanut Butter

I’m always asked what to look for in a good-quality peanut butter, and it is actually really simple—peanuts and salt! Making your own is so incredibly easy and gives you a chance to create your own signature flavors. I like to add cinnamon, honey, or unsweetened cocoa powder.

 

10 ounces roasted and salted peanuts (about 2 cups)

 

Place peanuts in a food processor. Pulse, then blend until peanut butter is desired consistency. Add flavorings (if using) and pulse again to combine.
