Making your own peanut butter is embarrassingly easy, everyone should be doing it. I saw this one a while back on Joy the Baker, and I bought some honey roasted peanuts shortly thereafter. However, I just never got around to making it.

Then this past weekend I began to make the Craving Ellie in My Belly recipe Noodles with a Lime-Peanut sauce and realized that I had no peanut butter. What I did have was a bag of peanuts - perfect opportunity to make my own.

All I did was put 1 1/2 cups of honey roasted peanuts with an 1/8 teaspoon of salt in a food processor and processed it until smooth. This took a good minute or so, until it formed into a ball.

Not only is this easy, but it is more delicious than any peanut butter I have ever bought in a store. The honey roasted peanuts are amazing, but you could also use some plain roasted peanuts, salted or unsalted and adjust the salt accordingly. I imagine you could also make your own almond or cashew butter by following the same process, I am going try that when I run out of this peanut butter.

So next time you find yourself with a bag of peanuts and a few spare minutes you should make this.
