Peanut Butter doesn’t have butter!? exclaimed a friend as I savoured a dollop of the nut butter. No, I said, and no added sugar, oil, or preservative either. Rich, smooth and creamy peanut butter can be made with ease at home. What’s more, you can add your choicest natural flavours like cinnamon, raisins, date syrup, cocoa powder and the like, to personalise it.
Most of the peanut butters available in stores have unhealthy additives such as added refined sugars, extracted oil, and chemical preservatives. Even recipes for making peanut butter at home, often include added extracted oils. Oil inside the whole nuts are abundant in nutrition and contribute to health, unlike heated or refined extracted oils.
Here is a super simple, melt-in-the-mouth peanut butter recipe with only the goodness!
1 cup Peanuts
Roast peanuts on an iron tava over low flame, Do not burn or over roast it. Stop roasting it when it starts becoming slightly brown.
Let it cool. Blend till it becomes a powder. Continue blending, scraping down the sides whenever it gets stuck, till you get a smooth and buttery consistency.
Fresh peanut butter is ready! It will not melt like butter, but has a rich buttery taste and can be used as spread in any dish. Or, just gobble a spoon by itself!
