Have you gotten on board with the homemade nut butter scene? Make sure to add this Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Recipe to your list. It’s simple and delicious!
Here at FoodApparel, we are obsessed with nut butters lately. And for a lot of good reasons.
- They taste amazing!!!!!
- You can use them for healthy snacks for the kids – no additives, no preservatives (and they still keep well in the fridge for a good length of time).
- They are the RIGHT PRICE!
So what are you waiting for? Seriously, though, you should give this some thought and consideration. The only time I buy anything at the store anymore is for chunky peanut butter, and that’s just because I still just have this affinity to super chunky Jif, k?
You can make nut butters from simply grinding up the raw nuts. Or you can roast the nuts and add a little bit of salt to round out the flavor. This time we’re taking our favorite homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Recipe and simply taking it one step further to the nut butter. You will need a food processor, or we highly recommend the Blendtec with the Twister Jar. It makes peanut butter in 30 seconds. I kid you not.
Try this out, and go check out some of our other delicious nut butter ideas and recipes! But just a fair warning – it is addicting!
Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Recipe
- 3 cups raw peanuts
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Microwave honey and butter in microwave for about one minute.
Pour in nuts and toss onto foil lined/greased baking sheet.
Roast nuts in oven about 5 minutes.
Allow to sit for 1 minute.
Pour on sugar and salt and lightly toss with a spoon to coat.
Pour onto parchment paper and allow to cool.
Once cool, pour in food processor or powerful Blender (like the Blendtec with Twister Jar).
Begin to pulse.
First, you will get a powder.
Next, you will get a chunky mixture.
Last, the nuts will begin to release oils.
Stop processing, and scrape sides as needed.
Add oil if needed.
Important note: If using a food processor, making this peanut butter (or other nut butters) usually takes about 5-7 minutes if you want a smooth butter where the nuts have released all of their oils (and certain nuts like almonds, might take longer. If you don't go the full time, the butters will tend to be dry and a little chunky in texture. Some people like it this way, some don't. Don't cheat the time. You should not usually need to add oil if you do.
On another note, I kid you not, in the Blendtec Twister Jar, peanut butter takes about 30 seconds to make. We usually just run it on the "soup" preset, twist the top to scrape the sides down as it goes, and then hit any button to stop the machine when it looks done. For other nut butters, like almond that tends to be a little drier, you may need to run the cycle 2-3 times. Still much faster than a food processor and better texture results! We highly recommend the Twister Jar for making any nut butters.
