Nuts

Nuts are a great source of protein, magnesium, potassium, folic acid, and Vitamin E. Nuts also contain flavonoids that can help reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer.

You can find lots of different types of peanut butters on the market today. For some it may be difficult to choose which is best, so start with reading the label. Look at the ingredients and select a peanut butter that does not contain added sugar or hydrogenated oils. Fresh peanut butter is amazing! You can easily grind your own peanut butter, but only make a little at a time because it has a short shelf life. 

Make Your Own

To make your own peanut butter you simply place 1 cup of unsalted or lightly salted peanuts in a food processor or blender. Pulse a few times to chop up the nuts. Then blend until smooth, about 3-5 minutes. If you like to add a little sweetener, I suggest 1/2 teaspoon of honey or 1/2 packet of stevia. 1 cup of peanuts makes about 3/4 cup of peanut butter.

  7. Step number 3 says mix together baking soda, baking powder and flour. I don’t see any amount of baking powder to use!! Is this a typo or am I missing something?

    • I’m sorry Renae, it is a typo. No baking powder was used. I tried it once but decided baking soda worked better. Crazy, I just made these last week with this recipe and didn’t notice. I hope you love them as much as we do :D
