Homemade Peanut Butter

My daughter is particularly partial to peanut butter- its a regular go to snack at just about anytime of the day. This homemade recipe is utterly delicious and I find myself eating it straight from the jar without even realising. Its really straight forward and worth the noise of the Magimix running for 5 minutes! 

Makes one jam jars worth


300g peanuts

2 tsp honey

2 tsp olive oil


Preheat the oven to 200oC and place the peanuts on a large baking tray in one thin layer. Toast for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Remove and straight away place in a food processor. Blitz for 4 minutes by which time it should be a smooth paste. Add the honey and olive oil and blitz for a final minute. Remove and carefully scoop into a sterilised jam jar. Keep stored in the fridge for 1 week.
