Homemade peanut butter is healthier, cheaper and tastier than store-bought brands. Not only that, making it in the Magic Bullet is a million times more fun than waiting in line at your local grocery for a bottle.

I’m using maple syrup as a sweetener for this recipe. It’s a unique and delicious flavor, though if you’d prefer, you can substitute honey or plain sugar.

Recommended: Purchase your peanuts from the pack-your-own section of your local grocer, rather than pre-packaged peanuts. It’s much less expensive this way!

Maple Peanut Butter

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups of roasted peanuts
  • 1 ½ Tbsp peanut or vegetable oil
  • 2 ½ Tbsp maple syrup
  • Salt

Instructions

  1. Pour peanuts into Magic Bullet and blend until desired consistency. Somewhere in the vicinity of 3 minutes should work for most tastes. Seriously – it’s really cool how they turn into butter.
  2. Add oil, maple syrup and one or two pinches of salt to puréed peanuts and blend.

Spread it over some fluffy white bread, add jelly, honey or raisins (or ham if you’re an Elvis fan) and enjoy!
