Now that I'm older I still love peanut butter sandwiches (my breakfast usually consists of toast with peanut butter) I use natural peanut butter instead.
After my success with almond butter I decided to try my hand at homemade peanut butter. The results were amazing. I used unsalted boiled peanuts in this recipe but I'm sure you could try roasted as well. Avoid using salted peanuts though, its easier to add salt at the end.
Once again the only special equipment you need is a food processor.
- 3 cups unsalted peanuts
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
1.) Add the peanuts to a food processor and turn on until a creamy butter develops
2.) Add salt to taste and enjoy!
The peanut butter came together much quicker than the almond butter, which makes sense as peanuts are a much softer nut.
My run yesterday went pretty well, my pace is even starting to increase! Today I have planned my first tempo run.
Any advice on tempo runs?
