When I was buying peanut butter, I was addicted to the Earth Balance brand because they used coconut oil and it had the slightest most delicious taste of peanut butter ever. I had to make mine like theirs!
When done, I always like making a quick shake to get all the extra peanut butter that sticks to the side.
This recipe works great with almonds too!
Makes 3 cups
Coconut Peanut Butter
1 1/2 lbs. dry roasted peanuts, unsalted
1/4 c coconut oil (should be unrefined ... it needs to smell like coconuts)
1/4 c unsweetened shredded coconut
Put ingredients into your Vitamix and blend away! Takes about 30-45 seconds.
The chunkier you want it, the less you need to blend it. The slight taste of coconut is amazing!
