Homemade Peanut Butter! Just peanuts, a bit of honey, a food processor, and five minutes. So creamy and delicious! Something really magical happens when you whip all those peanuts around in the food processor for a few minutes, and that something is creamy, drippy peanut butter that is the definition of simple perfection.

Homemade peanut butter will always have a rougher texture than the commercially-prepared stuff. You can add a bit of oil — peanut oil or another favorite oil — to help bump up the creaminess, and a powerful food processor or blender will make a difference. I also think that toasting the nuts before blending helps a lot — this warms the oils in the nuts and helps everything blend together more easily. Toasting also gives your peanut butter a deeper, richer flavor.

Peanuts and peanut butter contain nutrients that may boost a person’s heart health and improve blood sugar levels. One of the main fats in peanut butter is oleic acid. When substituted for other fats in your diet, oleic acid is shown to help maintain good cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. Managing these levels in your body can lower the risk of heart disease. Peanut butter also contains omega-6.
