Homemade Peanut Butter
We eat a ton of peanut butter at our house. The problem we have is my daughter prefers the smooth creamy texture of brand name peanut butter and we would prefer she eats a healthier version without the added sugar. How do you make both sides happy? I decided to try my hand at making my own peanut butter, it turned out delicious and couldn't be easier! I put a pound of lightly sea salted dry roasted peanuts in my Ninja, turned it on and hoped for the best. At first the peanuts turned into peanut dust, then a chunky and dry paste. I was a little concerned that my experiment would fail. I soon discovered the key to creamy peanut butter is patience, after several minutes my peanuts had been transformed into creamy peanut butter! It is delicious and contains only peanuts so everyone is happy.
