Peanut Butter doesn’t have butter!? exclaimed a friend as I savoured a dollop of the nut butter. No, I said, and no added sugar, oil, or preservative either. Rich, smooth and creamy peanut butter can be made with ease at home. What’s more, you can add your choicest natural flavours like cinnamon, raisins, jaggery, cocoa and the like, to personalise it.
Dairy butter apart from being unhealthy, is often the product of unethical and cruel practices. Most of the peanut butters available in stores have unhealthy additives such as added refined sugars, extracted oil, and chemical preservatives. Even recipes for making peanut butter at home, often include added extracted oils. Oil inside the whole nuts are abundant in nutrition and contribute to health, unlike heated or refined extracted oils.
Here is a super simple, melt-in-the-mouth buttery recipe with only the goodness!
