Last week in our group "Grandparent To Grandparent", we were discussing spending time in the kitchen with kids. The idea came to me to make homemade, natural peanut butter. After gathering several recipes, I was determined to give it a try. I was really surprised at how quick and easy it was to make. Perfect for young kids who love peanut butter, but may still have a pretty short attention span in the kitchen.

Even if you're just a big kid yourself, this is fun! All natural peanut butter is pricey. What an incredible solution to control the salt, sugar and fat yourself. Awesome gift idea!

How to Make All Natural Peanut Butter In 5 Minutes & Under $3

Step-by-Step

  1. Add peanuts to bowl of food processor. Process for a minute or two until crumbly. (Blender not recommended.)
  2. Add peanut (or vegetable) oil and honey. Process for a few more minutes. Taste for sweetness and salt. Continue to process until smooth. If it seems dry, you can add a few more drops of oil and process. I found 3 TB. was just right for us. (The original recipe called for 4 TB.) Refrigerate. It may seem a little loose, but the honey thickens it in refrigerator.
  3. It has the same taste and texture as my favorite brand of "all natural" peanut butter. Next, I'm going to try making flavored peanut butters like the expensive, all natural specialty brands like chocolate, white chocolate, "Bee's Knees", etc. I'm assuming by melting white chocolate, omitting the honey and adding it in the food processor you would get the same result. If you prefer a stronger honey taste, just increase the honey. Very economical, as well. A large jar cost me only $2.88 to make compared with $5-$6.00 that I've been paying for the "all natural" specialty brands.

    I also thought that the oil would separate like store-bought. But after 2 days, it's still beautiful and creamy. No stirring required.

    I'm hooked. I won't be buying peanut butter anymore now that I can make my own for half the price in about 5 minutes!

What To Make With That Can of Condensed Milk


Open the pantry and you’ll probably find a can of condensed milk on the shelf. It’s a baking staple, but what exactly is it? Sweetened condensed milk is made by heating milk and removing its water. Once reduced, it’s sweetened with sugar (lots of it). The final product is very thick, sweet, and fantastic in […]
