Homemade Peanut Butter


There's something magical in recreating store-bought foods at home. It might be the fact that homemade is most of the time a lot healthier... Or that you know exactly what's in the food you put in your mouth. Or that you can alter it to your own taste. And frankly, I always feel like I'm such a super cool person to be able to make tortillas at home. Or homemade Nutella, or almond butter... So I thought it was time to write a post about homemade Peanut Butter!
It is so super duper easy and healthy! I can't buy my favorite peanut butters in Hungary so it leaves me 2 options. Buy that crazy expensive, nasty Dutch peanut butter or make my own. Hmm... Doesn't take a genius to guess which option I chose :P I've tried making peanut butter at home many many times before always doing something different... This time I didn't add any oil in it, nor honey that I usually make it with. I sweetened it with 1 teaspoon maple syrup! Oh my... It added such an amazing flavor, let alone the creamy texture it has. Almost as if I'm eating Skippy! Okay, less sweet but that's how I like it! :)

Homemade Peanut Butter

200 grams roasted unsalted peanuts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon maple syrup

Add your peanuts to a food processor and start processing it. 


It will be coarse at the beginning but don't worry, keep processing. Add your salt and maple syrup after it looks like it's starting to come together.


You may have to stop and scrape the sides so it will be creamy all the way through. 
Process, process, process for about 10-13 minutes or until you like the consistency of your peanut butter. You can leave a few whole nuts and add it at the end to have crunchy peanut butter. This time, I chose to leave it creamy :)

  2. Delicious ! This is so easy to make but I would eat it by the spoonful, and be the size of a house if I kept this in my kitchen. Thank you.

    1. I believe, if you store it in the fridge it won't go bad for 3 weeks. But maybe it's still good after a month. I'm not sure, it never lasts a month for me :P

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P
So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utterly deliciou…
