Blender Peanut Butter
Making your own peanut butter is healthier and very budget friendly. Try this recipe that uses just a simple blender and shelled peanuts.
1 cup roasted shelled peanuts
1-1/2 teaspoons peanut oil
1/4 teaspoon salt (omit salt if salted peanuts are used)
Place ingredients in blender. With the lid secured, blend until mixture becomes paste-like or spreadable (3 to 4 minutes). If necessary, stop the machine and use a rubber spatula to scrape mixture from the sides of the container back into contact with the blade. Continue blending until desired consistency is reached.
For crunchy peanut butter, stir in 1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts after the blending is completed. Store in a tightly closed container in the refrigerator. Oil may rise to the top. If this occurs, stir before using. Yields 1/2 cup creamy or 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter.
Go out of the ordinary with your own homemade sweet nut butter spread made with chia seeds. This is perfect for topping the tortillas, quick sandwiches, graham cracker treats, or topping apple slices. Here's how: Combine 1/2 cup nut butter of your choice (almond, cashew, sunflower, sesame seed, peanut) and 1/4 cup of your favorite syrup (maple, fruit) with 1 tablespoon chia seeds. Mix thoroughly. This keeps in the refrigerator in a tightly closed jar for two weeks.
