So, apparently there’s been a recall.

Not every peanut butter has been recalled but my family’s favorite peanut butter has been for sure!

You’ve heard me talk before about layers. We try to keep things on hand that make improvising easy. Like, let’s say, peanuts!

I keep dry roasted peanuts in the freezer at all times among other nuts. The ingredient list on the side of the peanut jar has to read “peanuts”. And that’s it.

Making your own peanut butter is simple and fast. Four ingredients. That’s it. Y’all, it took me longer to take the pictures than it did to make the actual peanut butter.

Coconut Oil, Raw Honey, Peanuts, Sea Salt

You need:

2 cups of peanuts (or any nut you want to use… or a combination of nuts! you can be creative!)

1/2 cup of coconut oil

2 Tablespoons of raw honey

1 teaspoon of sea salt

All of your ingredients should be at room temperature.

Seriously just dump them into a food processor and whir it until it’s the consistency you want. Like, two minutes… maybe. Then store it in an airtight container in the fridge.

That’s it. You’re done.

Remember, the coconut oil will become more solid the colder it is, so you’ll need to pull it out of refrigeration for a bit before using it in order to make it spreadable.

And… that’s it. You just made your own peanut butter. Crazy, right!? This is one shortage that you’ll have an alternate plan for. Good job, you!

  1. Oooh! Yummers 😋!
    Why do you add the coconut oil… what’s it’s purpose? Is it necessary?
    And is it a must to store in the fridge… have I been causing issues with my family by leaving it on the counter 😬?
    Thanks for all the answers! 😘
    You’ll start hating my questions soon 🤣.

    1. 😂 I will not start hating your questions! I have not tried other oils but I do think the coconut oil helps give it structure. Try a small batch with maybe avocado oil and see what you think.
      I keep mine in the fridge so it will last longer. Since the peanuts I use are dry roasted, they should be safe as far as pasteurization goes. All oils are in a constant state of degradation so keeping your peanut butter in a dark cupboard when not in use really should be the norm.
