Creamy and crunchy homemade peanut butter made with roasted peanuts in a mixer grinder in just a few minutes.
Roast peanuts in a flat pan on low heat for about 10-12 minutes or until peanuts turn shiny and light golden brown. Keep stirring so as to not let the peanuts burn.
Once peanuts have come to room temperature or slightly warm, put them in a mixer grinder (or food processor). The better the processing power of the machine, the creamier peanut butter you will get.
Pulse a few times to get a crumbly texture.
Then grind for approximately 1 to 2 minutes, scraping down the sides in between if required, until the peanut butter starts to come together and starts becoming creamier.
Now add salt, cinnamon and honey (if using). Blend once to mix it all. You have your peanut butter at this stage which will not be very creamy but still a good consistency. Stop and empty out in a sterilized jar for storage.
If you want a creamier peanut butter, proceed with this step. Add oil slowly in the blender while the blender is on. Once you feel it's sufficiently creamy, stop and empty out in a sterilized jar for storage.
Add roasted and crumbly peanuts into half the peanut butter to get crunchy peanut butter.
