I made crispy peanuts this week and used them to make peanut butter. This recipe is from Nourishing Traditions. This is a very healthy treat! Soaked nuts, coconut oil, unrefined sea salt and raw honey…what could be better? I had some on my toasted sourdough bread this morning…YUM!!!! It’s actually quite sweet…you could cut back on the honey. Either way it is so delicious. I can’t wait to try this recipe using other types of nuts.
Makes 2 cups
2 cups crispy nuts, such as peanuts, almonds or cashews
3/4 cup coconut oil
2 Tbsp. raw honey
1 tsp. sea salt
Place nuts and sea salt in food processor and grind to a fine powder. Add honey and coconut oil and process until “butter” becomes smooth. It will be somewhat liquid but will harden when chilled. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Serve at room temp.
