I've tried various peanuts. I find the dry roasted lightly salted ones the best. I have also tried unsalted but it tastes a little bland to me. I've tried olive oil and that gives the peanut butter a strange taste but some of you might enjoy. One jar of peanuts can make almost a whole jar of peanut butter for less than a brand named peanut butter. It only takes a couple of minutes.

Homemade Peanut Butter

lightly salted dry roasted peanuts Less than 1 tsp peanut or canola oil


Cuisinart mini prep plus clean and ready to use. Pour in enough peanuts into chopping bowl to fill almost to the top of the chopping blade. You don't need oil but canola or peanut oil makes a smoother consistency. Use very little just small drizzle less than a tsp is all I needed. First put chopper on grind to get things started then change to chop and keep chopping until the blade begins to slow down and you see peanut butter begin to move toward the bottom of the bowl. Chop until you get the consistency you like. I like it a little crunchy. Then scoop it out and either use a small plastic bowl with lid or an old empty peanut butter jar. No added sugars and not a lot of oil. Tastes great and fun to make.
