Honey Peanut Butter

Three simple ingredients is all you need to make this delicious, all natural and kid approved Honey Peanut Butter. 

For me, I don't like to buy anything at a grocery store that has a paragraph of ingredients, ingredients that I can't pronounce, high fructose corn syrup and chemical preservatives.
Ingredients for some store bought peanut butter, yikes.


Items that you will need
*Roasted & Salted Cocktail Peanuts
*Food Processor or Blender
*Baster or Medicine Dropper

Roasted and salted cocktail peanuts, sometimes they are called party peanuts, gives it the roasted and salty flavor that you are used to from the store bought.  Make sure to check that it only has peanuts, oil and salt. No other spices or sugar.

Dried Roasted Peanuts sometimes has these ingredients
Cocktails Peanuts or Party Peanuts

Local honey may cost a little bit more than the honey in the little bear but if you have seasonal allergy it may help with them, you know it's pure honey and not cut.  Also local honey is richer in flavor and thicker than manufactured.

This is my favorite local honey

Use an oil that won't add any flavors to the peanut butter.  Coconut oil can also be used but not the solid form, it will make it not spreadable.

You might want to go through the peanuts in a bowl or on a plate to check for any extra burnt peanuts.  I found some in mine and it might  through off the taste.

Takes about 15 to 20 minutes
Yields around 24 ounces, 3 cups
Stores up to 2 months in the fridge

35 ounces, ~ 4 1/3 cups (992  g) Salted Cocktail Peanuts, unsalted or reduced salt works great 
1/4 of honey, more or less to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons of oil, I used Canola
Mason jar or any container with a secure lid

Pour peanuts into the food processor to the liquid line. Do not over fill the food processor or cover the top of the blade.

Pulse the peanuts 10 times to look like small rubble.

If you want crunchy peanut butter take out a couple of tablespoons out
On low, blend for 3 minute.  It will first look like a thick paste.  Add a tablespoon of oil and tablespoon of honey then stir it then blend again for another 3 minutes.  Stir around and blend for 2 to 3 minutes. 

Don't freak out if it starts to form into a ball, just add a little oil, continue blending and it will smooth out.  Add oil, honey and stir then blend until it's creamy.  

For crunchy, fold in the chopped up peanuts.

Blending may create heat so let it cool for maybe 5 minutes before storing.

Repeat the same processor for the rest of the peanuts.

Transfer peanut butter to the mason jar and store in refrigerator.  

Customize it:
Make cinnamon peanut butter just add 2 to 3 teaspoons of cinnamon.
Make pumpkin spice peanut butter just add a tablespoon  of pumpkin spice 
Make chocolate peanut butter add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
Try vanilla peanut butter just add two teaspoons of vanilla extract or use a vanilla bean and scarp out the seeds

Enjoy it on a sandwich, on a spoon,  or make cookies with it.
May have to take it out for 5 or so minutes before use, to make it  easier to spread. The oil may separate just stir it with a spoon.
