Homemade Peanut Butter

Have you ever thought of making your own peanut butter? Just imagine this. Put roasted peanuts into your food processor. Add some sugar, salt and oil to your liking. Relax and let the machine do the wonder. After a couple of minutes, you will get to taste your  fresh creamy dreamy or even crunchy munchy homemade peanut butter!! How cool is that? It’s something you and your kids can have loads of fun with.

 

Homemade peanut butter is definitely far better than those commercial peanut butter as you need not worry about the presence of hydrogenated oil and preservative. But, of course, the shortcoming is a shorter shelf life.  Well, I bet you don’t have the time to think about it as your peanut butter would probably be all gone way before that.

This homemade peanut butter is so tasty with its all-natural flavour and creamy texture that I can’t resist the temptation to eat a spoonful of it straight out from its jar. Anyway, don’t expect to get a replica of those branded store bought peanut butter.  But, if you are one who love healthy and nutritious homemade product, then I would highly recommend it to you.

 

Peanut butter has a bad reputation for its high amount of saturated fat and calories. But, that doesn’t mean it’s bad for your health. Looking at the overall nutrients, peanut butter also brings you many health benefits. It’s high in mono- and poly-unsaturated fats which can help to decrease cholesterol levels and reduce risks of chronic disease. Furthermore, it also provides great source of protein, folate, vitamin B, vitamin E, dietary fiber and mineral (potassium and magnesium) that your body needs. That’s said, for those who don’t have allergy in peanuts, peanut butter is really nutritious and healthy if eating in moderation and not to go overboard.

 

Now, you can use this creamy (or perhaps chunky) peanut butter with hundreds (or maybe thousands over thousands) interesting ways. Well, as for me, I still prefer the classic way, if not the childhood way – peanut butter and jam sandwiched between two wholemeal breads. Do you have any favourite or creative way of eating peanut butter? I love to hear from you.

    Love your peanuts photo!
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Amazing! I was just starting my journey to home make as many food as I can for my family. This came at the right time! Looking forward to try this soon.
    Thank you!

  3. Joanne says:

    I’ve made homemade peanut butter before and it is AMAZING. I’ll have to try your version!

  4. Lilium says:

    Would like to know which brand did you use for the blender? I think my Kenwood brand may not be able to work.

  5. Lilium says:

    Add on : i love peanut butter on plain biscuit. As for roasting, probably wun be able to do as i don‘t have an oven. Will buy from stall then.

    • food-4tots says:

      Lilium: Instead of roasting, you can dry fry your peanuts. The method is as follows:

      “Rinse peanuts until running water. Pat dry with kitchen towel and leave to air dry. In a wok/ cooking pan, dry fry (without oil) peanuts with low heat until fragrant, the skin turns dark brown and the internal colour is tan. It will take about 20 minutes or so. Set aside and let them cool down.”

      I used this method to make my peanut cookies – http://food-4tots.com/2012/01/17/peanut-cookies/2/. Happy trying! :)

  6. Hmm, every one in the family shall be happy to have this.
    The one made with cashew nuts also finished fast in my pantry.

  7. MaryMoh says:

    Oh wow….you make your own peanut butter. That looks SO good…..mmmm. You are just brilliant! Thanks for sharing.

  8. LCOM says:

    It’s great to make your own. I stopped buying peanut butter for a while because of the hydrogenated oil. Then, natural peanut butter came along which was made only with roasted peanut and salt so I just bought one recently. It said to be refrigerated.

  9. I love homemade peanut butter! It’s so easy and so good! Great pictures!

  10. Amy Tong says:

    This peanut butter is beautiful. I’ve never made my own but I’m inspired to do it. It’s so easy and I think it’s way better than store bought ones. ;)

  11. Alice says:

    Wow! I love peanut butter
    So good I can make it on my own now
    Thks for sharing! :)

  12. Rack of Lam says:

    oh my that looks really good. Very smooth and consistent.

  13. My children *finally* started to eat peanut butter after resisting to eat for many years (they still don’t like PB & Jelly sandwich!). Very smooth and rich PB!

  14. Alice says:

    This looks really good! Ok, I am on. :)

  15. Grace says:

    I was so inspired by your peanuts photo that I took 1 too! ;)
    Tried making this today but it doesn’t have the smooth texture. Is it because blender not powerful enough? :/

  16. Grace says:

    Of course can! Except that I don’t quite know how to do that :-/. Not exactly very familiar wt fb fan site.
    I blended half of it first. It was quite long I think.
    It’s sitting in fridge now. Can I still ‘re-blend’ again tomorrow?
    It taste very good, really wished the texture was good too!

    • food-4tots says:

      Grace: Go to my fan page, just upload your photo like the usual way. Other readers had done it before. Let me know if you face any problem. I’m not sure whether you can “re-blend” it. But since it’s sitting in the fridge, you can give it a try. Just take a small sample to blend and see how it goes. I suggest that you do it in 4-6 batches if you think your machine can’t handle it. It will eventually become smooth if you continue the process long enough especially after adding oil as a “lubricant”. If you still have some roasted peanuts on hand, do this exercise again but on a smaller amount, say 1/4 cup. Btw, you can use your peanut butter to make peanut sauce too. ;)

  17. Grace says:

    Ok, I’ll do that ;)
    Tried taking a small amount to reblend, still the same texture after pulsing for quite long (blender very hot). :( will try again wt new batch of peanuts.
    Do you hv recipe for peanut sauce? ;D

  18. Grace says:

    I used the avent blender. I also hv Philips blender but I reckon the performance is more or less the same.

  19. tigerfish says:

    I am a peanut butter regular too! Good peanut butter is beneficial – source of proteins and it is also said to be a source of resveratrol!

  20. Grace says:

    Hmm, good question. Ive never blended anything dry on avent blender before but I do use the Philips blender to blend almond flour wt icing sugar for macarons. So you think that might be the reason?

    • food-4tots says:

      Grace: It’s difficult to judge the performance of the blender based on flour and sugar. You can check whether your blender is recommended for blending chopped onion, chopped garlic, chopped chili stuff, uncooked rice etc stuff like that with the need of adding water.

  21. Grace says:

    Noted. I’ll let you know when it works :). Thanks so much!

  22. noobcook says:

    wow home-made peanut butter! I’m really impressed. Looks really wholesome =)

  23. Meg Tan says:

    Aiyah! I just bought a bottle of PB then I saw this. Have bookmarked this page :)

  24. lilium says:

    Hi, Lk, wondering why not to use peanuts for soup?

    • food-4tots says:

      Lilium: The peanuts for soup are smaller in size. I personally find them less tastier than the ones for roasting. ;)

      • Lilium says:

        oic! I can’t tell the difference. The shop assistant doesn’t seemed to know when I ask. So, in the end, I used the one I had at home. I bought them long time ago for making soup then.

        • food-4tots says:

          Lilium: Initially, I was also not aware of the different too. But later, I learned it from the shop assistant. If I buy from the wet market, the lady will ask me which type I want. ;)

  25. Always says:

    It is so nice of u to share the recipe. May I ask where did u get the jar?
    Do u also have recipe for those nachos cheese sauce?

  26. Cheryl says:

    Oatmeal…my everyday favorite.
    It is why, even though, I am diabetic I do not have a cholesterol problem.
    I put 2 tablespoons of peanut butter in, along with vanilla rice or soya drink. Sometimes, pumpkin pie spice if I am missing my pumpkin pie.
