Homemade peanut butter

peanut butter

Peanut butter is a tasty spread that can be had with bread or chapathi. It is lightly sweet and has the goodness of roasted peanuts. Peanut butter sold by top brands is quite expensive and may even contain preservatives.

Delicious and creamy peanut butter can be easily made at home. Here's how you could make easy home-made peanut butter.

4 cups peanuts (peeled and roasted)
4 tbsp sunflower oil
3 tbsp honey
2-3 pinches salt
2-3 drops vanilla essence

Grind the roasted peanuts in a dry mixer jar, into fine powder
Now add sunflower oil, honey, salt and vanilla essenceĀ 
Mix everything well by giving it a pulse or two in the mixer
Transfer to clean glass jars and store in fridge
Butter or any other oil could be used instead of sunflower oil.

Coconut oil doesn't suit the flavour or texture of peanut butter.
