Almost every morning my son and I enjoy a piece of cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter on it. It’s kind of our thing, cialis site and I’m totally in love with it. We sit down together at the table and for the next 10-20 minutes our fingers get sticky, viagra sales clinic our faces get sticky and we literally cannot stop the giggles that roll out of us. It’s the best.
I was telling my friend Carolyn a few weeks ago about our morning giggles fest and she said to me: “add some coconut oil to your toast first, it will change you life!” Well I’m here to tell you, it did change my life for the better! Now at first spread, the coconut oil seems a little weird, but it melts right into the bread just like butter. So I got to thinking. Why not make my own PB with coconut oil? So, of course I made some. I can’t help myself.
So here is my take on Peanut Butter, and it’s pretty damn delicious if I do say so myself.
Homemade Peanut Butter
1-1 1/2 cups whole roasted Peanuts; shelled
1/4-1/2 cups Organic refined Coconut Oil
2 Tablespoons Organic Wildflower Honey
In the bow of a Food Processor fitted with a steel blade, add the peanuts and coconut oil and blend until smooth. This takes about 10 minutes. I like to pulse the machine to make sure I break up all the peanuts really well. I also had to do several rounds of scraping down the sides of the bowl. If the Peanuts are not blending add more Coconut Oil. If the mixture is too oily, add some more shelled Peanuts. Once you reach a smooth consistency, add the honey and blend for another minute or two. Voila, you’ve got your Peanut Butter. You can either refrigerate your PB or your can leave it on the counter in an airtight container for about 2 weeks. Not that it will last that long…
