In all honesty, peanut butter is one of those foods that you really don’t need to buy from a store. Anyone who owns a food processor can make it in less than 10 minutes with only ONE ingredient (peanuts). YES, its that easy! Not only that, but it is much healthier too!! Most of the imported peanut butter that we find at all the supermarkets in Egypt contain hydrogenated oil and added sugar. We all know that nuts are already high in fats (the good kind of fats that our body recognizes and needs). Factories add hydrogenated oil to extend the shelf life of their products, and you know that saying of “the longer the shelf life, the shorter yours” so, no thank you, we don’t need the jar with the one year expiration date. Once you start making your own peanut butter or any nut butter at home, you will never go back to buying the manufactured ones. Try it!

Ingredients

2 cups Peanuts

1/2 tsp salt (optional)

1 tsp honey

Directions

Place the peanuts into the food processor bowl. Process for about 1 minute. Then open the lid and scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Place back the lid and process until the mixture is smooth, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Be patient, because it starts sticking together before it turns into a buttery cream!
