Why homemade peanut butter? No preservatives (✓), No added sugar (✓), No added oils such as vegetable oil (✓). Is homemade peanut butter cheaper? It all depends on the peanuts you buy. I buy store brand roasted peanuts which costs CHF3 ($3) per kilo – you can of course buy unroasted and roast it yourself. One jar of peanut butter here costs the same. So for me, it is cheaper. I did not make my own peanut butter because it was cheaper, but because I needed unsweetened peanut butter which I have not found here yet. Plus, it’s so easy and you can control the smoothness of the peanut butter. Now that I have made my own peanut butter, I really prefer the taste of it compared to store bought ones.
All you need is a food processor, peanuts and coconut oil which is optional. Add salt, sugar or preferred sweetener if you wish. This recipe yields 17 servings ( 1 Tablespoon/c.a 15 grams ) = c.a 255 grams per jar.
