I’ve really wanted to try making a nut butter from scratch and believe me when I say this, it is the easiest thing you will make all day.
Peanut butter and cinnamon are two of my favourite things, so it only seemed natural to combine them. 🙂
I kept eating spoonfuls of it while trying to photograph it. I just couldn’t help myself!
Peanut Butter with Cinnamon
- 1 cup roasted peanuts (either buy them roasted or roast them yourself)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Pour the peanuts into a high powered food processor and blend for 6-10 minutes.
It will start out chunky and eventually smooth- just give it some time.
When finally smooth, add the cinnamon and blend some more!
Once fully blended, pour the peanut butter into a airtight container and store in the fridge (or enjoy immediately…)
The peanut butter should last about 2-4 weeks in the fridge, but make sure to mix it a bit before eating.
This recipe makes a generous 1/2 cup of peanut butter.
