Creamy Maple Cardamom Peanut Butter

Hello! This is Steph from Steph in Thyme. Next time you’re shopping and find yourself in the peanut butter aisle, walk past the shelves of processed jars and say, “Nah, I can make that.” Because you can make your own peanut butter at home. This Creamy Maple Cardamom Peanut Butter has just four ingredients and takes 5 minutes. And it’s oh so good.

Roasted peanuts and peanut oil are really all you need to make your own peanut butter from scratch.

Pulse the peanuts a few times in a food processor (or blender, but one with an opening in the top to easily add ingredients). Once the peanuts are ground up, gradually add peanut oil to form a creamy consistency. That’s it!

But, there’s more fun to be had. Peanuts and peanut oil create a blank canvas, a clean slate to layer in your favorite ingredients and flavors.

Maple syrup and cardamom add a hint of sweetness and spice to create an elegant, yet simple peanut butter. It’s peanut butter gone gourmet.

If you prefer chunky peanut butter, reserve 1/3 cup of peanuts. After the ingredients are blended together, add those peanuts and pulse a few times until combined, but still chunky.

Get ready to pop a slice of toast in the toaster, and/or grab a banana…and slather away! (Eating straight from the jar is also acceptable).
