Peanut butter consisting of only three whole ingredients with that sweet-roasted taste we all love!

Homemade peanut butter made of whole ingredients and very quick!

Don’t get me wrong. I love a good helping of classic Jif creamy peanut butter, BUT it does leave you feeling a little heavy and gross. Maybe that’s just me. Whatever the case, this pantry staple couldn’t be easier to make from your own home!

Forget the hydrogenated oils, sugar, and molasses that the standard, store, shelf peanut butters have. You really only need a couple of ingredients to make great tasting and WAY more wholesome peanut butter. All you really need are peanuts and salt. To make this “honey-roasted”, I of course added some honey.

The first step you take is to lay out the peanuts on an aluminum foiled pan, squeeze a healthy amount of honey over the peanuts, salt them, and place into oven.

Bake at 250°F for 20-25 minutes until tint of peanuts has darkened like pictured below.
