Chunky Peanut Butter Recipe

By 9:57 PM

I grew up watching and helping my great grandma make her own peanut butter. She was the kind of woman who render her own lard, made her own chorizo and so many more! I can't remember running out of food to eat when my great grandma was still around. There was always something stored in the fridge or in the pantry. I enjoy making homemade products too whenever time allows me but the main reason why I decided to publish this peanut butter recipe was because I miss the lady so much. And her peanut butter too!

I have a confession to make. It wasn't my intention to post a recipe for chunky peanut butter. I was aiming for a smooth and silky consistency but halfway through the process, my food processor died. WTH? It was defective to start with because I previously plugged it into a 220v outlet when it's capacity is 110v. Way to go, Jhanis! I had it fixed and was able to use it when I made avocado shake with the kids. Turns out, it's not fixed really at all because, uhmm chunky peanut butter? LOL

It doesn't matter if my peanut butter isn't as smooth as how I wanted it to be because the kids love it! I prefer smooth peanut butter myself but I was even surprised that I liked it too! As a matter of fact, the next time I make peanut butter, I'll make sure to leave some chunks!

This is so easy to make and you will only need 3 ingredients. Peanuts, sugar and oil (or butter!). That's it! That's why I prefer homemade products because you are sure that there are no unnecessary ingredients plus you can control how much sugar goes into it.

Ready to get cooking?

  • 2 cups raw shelled peanuts
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil (or butter)
  • a pinch of salt

  • Roast peanuts in a pan for about 8 minutes or until light golden brown
  • Place everything in your food processor 
  • Process until you get your desired consistency 
  • Store in a sterilized airtight container

And  you're done! See how easy that was? Just a tip, buy peanuts at a farmers market instead of at the grocery shop. I bought half a kilo of shelled peanuts at the farmers market for only P50. 500 grams at the supermarket will costs you around 75 bucks! You're welcome!

How about you? Do you make your peanut butter at home or do you prefer store bought? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
