How to Make Simple Homemade Peanut Butter


Homemade Peanut Butter

On some level, you probably already know that, sure, it's pretty easy to make your own peanut butter. But if you've never actually made homemade peanut butter, I don't know if you quite understand how truly, incredibly, ridiculously easy it really is.

We love that you have the control — the amount of salt or honey is completely up to you. Plus, you can get creative. We make our basic peanut butter crunchy. Sometimes, though, we add almonds. And when we’re feeling bold, we make chocolate peanut butter. (It is seriously good).
